Comic Great STEVE DILLON passed away this weekend. He was 54.

My favorite Dillon books were his JUDGE DREDD, ROGUE TROOPER, HELLBLAZER and of course PREACHER runs. Several years back I had the pleasure to briefly meet him at SDCC, where he was kindly doing free sketches. I asked for one of Jesus' inbred descendant from 'Preacher'. I remember this great big grin appearing on his face and then he drew an awesome sketch of the drooling kid (I'll dig out the sketch and post later). He was very nice, humble and generous.

Steve Dillon was a Comic Legend and his passing is hitting fans hard. 'Preacher' remains one of my all-time favorite comic book masterpieces.
