AOTW: Al Williamson

The illustrator who made his bones illustrating classic titles like Creepy and Eerie before continuing Alex Raymond’s genre-defining work on Flash Gordon has died at 79, leaving a vibrant legacy.

Williamson made other people better, both on the page, and by fostering new talents like Bernie Wrightson and Mike Kaluta.
