Don Perlin 1929 - 2024



Don Perlin, a comic book artist, writer and editor, passed away quietly at the age of 94 on May 14th in St. Johns, FL. His daughter Elaine posted on Facebook:


"'I am devastated to report the death of an amazing man,' Elaine's post reads. 'My father Don Perlin passed away peacefully yesterday at the age of 94. He was an amazing father, husband, grandfather and great grandfather. We will all miss him terribly. He was an amazing artist and considered a legend in the comic world. To me he was my best friend. I will miss him so much.'"

"Born on August 27, 1929 in New York City, Perlin started in the comic industry with a Fox Features story in the late 1940s. Going into the 1950s, he found a groove penciling horror comics for publishers like Atlas (which would become Marvel Comics), and Harvey Comics, as well as war comics for Charlton. He later worked almost exclusively on art for Charlton for eleven years, a tenure that began in 1962. Perlin's time at Marvel began in the early 1970s, eventually leading to him getting a full-time position drawing for the company.' --


 Via Wikipedia:

"He is best known for Marvel Comics' Werewolf by Night, Moon Knight (a character he co-created), The Defenders, and Ghost Rider. In the 1990s, he worked for Valiant Comics, both as artist and editor, where he co-created Bloodshot."
