In Memorium: Adrienne Roy

Veteran DC color artist, Adrienne Roy passed away in Austin, Texas at the age of 57 on December 14, 2010.

She was a fixture of the comics of the 1980's, coloring many of DC’s best selling books including Crisis on Infinite Earths — and she was a cutting figure with her many tattoos and striking appearance. Adrienne was the centerfold for the first issue of Tattoo magazine.

She was largely responsible for color work on Batman titles like Detective Comics, Shadow of the Bat, Gotham Nights, Robin and Batman throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, in addition to providing coloring on many other notable titles during that period including The New Teen Titans, Warlord, Weird War and Madame Xanadu.

The Catacombs extends its condolences to her family, friends and fans. Rest in peace!

A shame I am learning of her only because of her passing (thanks, Chuck, for that much, at least). I've been googling her since your post and find a fascinating person.

She was certainly talented and interesting. I think that I actually got to speak to her at a show some years ago.
