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

Speaking as myself, I don't deserve anything.

Great artist and a real nice guy. \:\(
People spend a lot of time together and they tend to get on each other's nerves. - That's the CGC boards in a nutshell

Some collectors would crash through a group of preschoolers then step on their own mother's throat just to buy a book off of Hitler with the hope of selling it to Satan for a few extra bucks. - topofthetotem

But you're overlooking the opportunity to sell some books and appear altruistic for a small entry fee. \:\) - Ditch Fahrenheit

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.
