Gene Colan Hospitalized, Artwork Missing
Gene Colan, who just received an Eisner nomination for Best Single Story, was injured last week and is now being cared for by his son and
daughter. In addition, it appears that some of Gene’s artwork has
disappeared, including pages from Nathaniel Dusk and a Star Wars-related
piece. The police are involved in the matter.
Clifford Meth reports: “If Gene Colan art
is currently circulating in the marketplace, it is possible that these
pieces were stolen. Collectors and fans of Gene are encouraged to email
me if you see artwork circulating that is the least bit questionable.”
He adds: “I
spoke with Gene early this evening and he is in good spirits, as
always. Unfortunately, he is also in pain and unable to use his right
arm at this time due to a serious shoulder injury.”

that Gene sees your notes.
