What???

I loved his work! Avengers Forever may be my all time favorite limited series, and I'm not even an Avengers guy. His work on Captain Marvel was great and maybe the only readable Captain Marvel series.

Had no idea he was that old.

Re: RIP Carlos Pacheco

Damned shame. He was a rock solid artist. Great journeyman who could deliver the goods no matter what he was drawing, and also had his unique style.

I was also surprised he was sixty years old. Since I didn't really notice his work until the past couple of decades, I always figured he was younger, probably in his forties. His style also seemed like it came from a younger person.

Then again, the Image gang is getting up there now...

Rob Liefeld - 55
Jim Lee - 58
Erik Larsen - 59
Todd McFarlane - 61
Marc Silvestri - 64
Jim Valentino - 70

Carlos was great, Marvel could just stick him on any title/mini-series and he created artwork that was pleasant to look at. I read so many comics with him as the artist that this news is quite sad. RIP Carlos.

Ah a man with great tastes!

Yeah, Pacheco didn't really break out into American comics until he was in his 30s and right in that Image boom period. Always loved his work on X-men but yes Avengers Forever was a standout, basically Busiek's (and Stern's) love letter to Avengers continuity.

I just remember he really loved poses where characters had their fingers stretched out towards the reader.

Re: RIP Carlos Pacheco

Pacheco was always a reliable artist whose work I enjoyed. There was something about his character designs I always liked, almost like they had a slight animation tilt which American comics only sometimes have.
