R.I.P. Ernie Chan

The Fellowship is saddened to hear of the passing of Ernie Chan (Chua) at the age of 71. No cause is known at this time. The news was reported on his Facebook page. He came to America from the Philippines in 1970 and worked for DC Comics under the name Ernie Chua from 1975-1977 primarily as a cover artist, but did interiors for BATMAN and DETECTIVE COMICS. He also worked for Marvel in the late 70s, primarily on CONAN THE BARBARIAN and SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN, but others as well.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends.

A personal note: I was a big fan of his work. I grew up reading the comics that had his covers. He will be missed.
