Marie Severin in hospital

Fantagraphic’s blog reported comic legend Marie Severin is recovering from a stroke which struck her on October 11th.

My pal Greg Sadowski just passed on news that legendary EC and Marvel Comics’ cartoonist/colorist/designer Marie Severin suffered a stroke last Thursday. Direct your get-well cards to her at:

Marie Severin, patient
c/o Huntington Hospital
270 Park Ave.
Huntington, NY 11743

Severin began her career at EC Comics in the 1950s as one of the great colouring pioneers, followed by a lengthly three decade stint with Marvel which included penciling, inking and colouring numerous titles. And for me personally, she is one of my inspirations to get into this industry.

All of us at Newsarama wish her a speedy recovery.
