If you have a dream about out-posting me, you better wake up and apologize.

So sad. He had such a unique style to his art. One of my favorites throughout so many eras.

God Bless You, John and Family.

So terribly sad... as a war comics fan, I fell in love with John Severin's art in the 1970s, and have enjoyed it ever since.

God bless you John! You made childhood (and adulthood) sweeter indeed!

We are diminished.

If there's a creator out there that you admire, let 'em know.
