In Memorium: Dave Hoover

Comic book artist Dave Hoover apparently passed away on September 5, 2011. His most notable work was on DC Comics' The Wanderers limited series (1988) and a lengthy run on the 1988 Starman; plus Marvel Comics' 1993 mini-series The Invaders and Captain America. Hoover originally started his career in animation, first as a layout artist for Filmation Studios from 1977–1985. In recent years Hoover established himself as one of the premiere "good-girl" artists working today, with regular auctions of his cheesecake sketches on eBay keeping his fans happy.

I just saw the guy in Baltimore a couple of weeks ago, so hearing about his untimely passing is really sad to me. The Catacombs extends its sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fans. Rest in peace!
