Sorry to hear about the passing of John Severin. I’ve always liked his art but he always seemed kind of overshadowed by the other E.C. artists—sort of the George Harrison compared to Wood and Kurtzman’s Lennon/McCartney. Actually, I think I first became aware of his work through Cracked. It’s odd that I first encountered him as a humor artist, though it’s safe to say that since his career spanned more than 50 years there’s probably not a single genre he didn’t tackle. 
Goodbye, funnyman…

    Well said. I, too, first came across Severin through Cracked and later “discovered” his other work.
