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. \:\(

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!
