Clifford Meth has a nice tribute to Marie Severin with lots of comments from her contemporaries. Severin is currently in the hospital recovering from a stroke.
“Marie Severin has mastered every skill connected with comics as no one—-man or woman—-has,” Johnny Romita said upon reflection. “I was lucky enough to have worked with her for many years at Marvel Comics… Her EC years speak for themselves. She could do humor better than most; did powerful pencils from plots; inked and colored stories and countless covers with personality and clarity, as well as any colleague I ever worked with. And then there were those barbed but sensational birthday cards she dashed off, which are among the most prized art I still have in my studio.”
