Sad news. But what a life and career Williamson had and his work and his legacy as one of that great old breed of comic illustrators with endure.

Interesting news piece too. Three of my biggest heroes as an artist all in one place. All of these men are sorely missed.

This is really heartbreaking, to lose Al Williamson and Frank Frazetta practically back to back. But like Joe said, their legacy will last for generations.
