Updated: 2/2/06, 11:00am PST: The comic book community continues to react to the news of Seth Fisher's death.

You can visit "The Art Of Seth Fisher," his official website, by clicking here. It is unknown whether or not there are any more projects completed by Fisher that have yet to see the light of day.

In the thread where his death was announced, various comic book creators reacted, with Cameron Stewart saying, "I've met Seth, he was truly an incredible artist, and it seemed like his career was only just beginning to gain momentum." The fan community has been similarly devestated, with many discovering his art in Marvel's recent "Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big In Japan" series.

According to a post on Barbelith Underground by artist J.H. Williams III, artist Seth Fisher ("Green Lantern: Willworld," "Vertigo Pop: Tokyo," "Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big in Japan") has died.

"i just received some very saddening news this evening. my friend seth fisher has died," said Williams. "he was a great artist and i had the pleasure of calling him my friend. i also had the pleasure of working with him. he had such a great outlook to life and was always willing to think of things from another perspective. his work is some of most unique i have seen."


Back in 2002, CBR News interviewed Fisher, who was at the time working on "Vertigo Pop: Tokyo." Fisher maintained a web presence at www.floweringnose.com. According to his Web site, "Green Lantern: Willworld," released in 2001, was his first hard cover graphic novel. Two years later, Fisher received a Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team Eisner nomination for his work on "Vertigo Pop: Tokyo" and "The Flash: Time Flies," ultimately losing to Kevin O'Neill ("League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"). "

CBR News would like to extend our condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.
