RIP Comic Artist Paul Ryan


#1

He is probably best known for the oft-maligned 1990s Fantastic Four run but I’ve always liked his stuff quite a lot, including his work on that run.

He worked with Millar at DC very very early in Mark’s career, too.

66 is too young.


#2

Truly sad. I always enjoyed his art and his dedication to his craft.

RIP


#3

He was one of my favourite artists - his style was clean and reserved, but could still show action and drama well. His use of photographs in backgrounds for cover was really cool too.
I was reading Quasar recently and wondering what he was up to now (The Phantom daily strip, I think).


#4

I added some clarification to the title as the comic artist was not who I initially thought of.


#5

I wouldn’t say RIP for the other one.


#6

Not implying you would. Though either would be no less traject as both are too young, it does change the expectation.


#7

One of my favorite artists back in the day. Mostly remember his run on Quasar.


#8

I don’t think he ever missed a deadline or had a fill-in on his Fantastic Four run and that included a huge #400 issue.


#9

Pretty shocking. I also had no idea how old he was (though I guess that’s as good a secret in comics as any). Loved his work on Superman and Flash. He’ll be missed.

Found on the Byrne Robotics forums:

It was devastating news to say the least, Paul was a creator I cherished since I was 12.
My first comic from him was DP7#2(I still own the same copy), since then I backtracked and followed his work.
Paul to me was something to study, I mean hell his panel layout skills were so damn interesting.
Apparently he was barely late with his work.

Cherish his work and legacy.

I was contacted on Twitter about Paul Ryan, someone saw my Tweets and actually posted some art I was not expecting to see! He met Paul Ryan at his house in 95 to buy this piece, DP7#1’s cover with the original logo before it changed!
