Newsarama reported recently that we lost, Alan Kupperberg –
Legend Alan Kupperberg died on July 17th, he was 62 years old.
Kupperberg, who I know mainly from Obnoxio the Clown oneshot – I will review that one of these years. Born May 18, 1953 and died, July 17, 2015.
He has a website –
He is in this issue, for the art he provided for Fantastic Four supporting character, Alicia Masters!
This excellent website covers what this story, from Marvel Two-In-One 95, was about –
Alicia Masters was made into the Bride of Nephrus.
Marvel Database doesn’t have much more information –
Here is the page that has the image from above on it –
