Send A Get-Well Card To Marie Severin

Sad news from the Fantagraphics Blog:

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

Huntington Hospital
270 Park Ave.
Huntington, NY 11743

Marie Severin is the grande dame of female comic book artists, and has drawn the adventures of Dr. Strange, The Hulk, and the Sub-Mariner, I worked with her on a story for the "Batman Black and White" series and she was super-nice and could still draw an awesome comic.

Look, I'm usually bad with these "sending stuff" things (cards, bills, Netflix).

But I'm going to stop by my stationary shop on the way out today and get a card for Marie.

Let's get together and all send something -- a get-well card, postcard, or note. I think that would be really awesome.



  1. I don't object to the title you gave Marie Severin (especially as I was uniformly blown away by her art as a kid) but I do object to the title not being shared with Ramona Fradon.

  2. That's an excellent idea. I'll send a card myself and pass the idea along to friends and acquaintances.

  3. Off to get a card!

    Thanks for the heads up, even if it was sad news!
