Ric Estrada 1928-2009

Comic book artist and inker Ric Estrada passed away yesterday after a long battle with prostate cancer.

Primarily known for war comics like G.I. Combat and the unique Blitzkrieg, he also had a hand in many superhero comics over the years including Karate Kid, Legion of Super-Heroes, Wonder Woman, Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter and in the 1970s revival of All-Star Comics, he co-created Power Girl with Joe Orlando. He’ll be greatly missed.
