Via Flog: this sad news:

My pal Greg Sadowski just passed on news that legendary EC and Marvel Comics’ cartoonist/colorist/designer Marie Severin suffered a stroke last Thursday. Direct your get-well cards to her at:

Marie Severin, patient
c/o Huntington Hospital
270 Park Ave.
Huntington, NY 11743

Marie is one of a kind as a person and a talent — we wish her a speedy recovery.


  1. Marie is an underappreciated talent. I hope she recovers soon and gets back to enjoying life. Best wishes to her and the family.

  2. Marie, best wishes for a full recovery. You’ve provided me (and thousands of others) with countless hours of entertainment and it’s always great to say hello to you at the San Diego convention.

  3. Johnny Romita reports that Marie is doing *much* better–her doctors are using words like “miraculous recovery”.

  4. Best wishes to Marie, all I’ve ever read about her are the good things and times she had with the other staffers in Marvel’s early years.
