Obituary: Dan Adkins

Artist Dan Adkins (b.1937) died during the first week of May. When serving in the Air Force in the 1950s, he started the fanzine Sata as a way of getting rid of surplus funds each month. He later turned the zine over to his co-editor, Bill Pearson, but continued to provide illustrations for Amra, Vega, and Xero. In 1964, he got a job as Wally Wood’s assistant and went on to work on Doctor Strange, Aquaman, Batman, and numerous other titles for a variety of publishers, including more than 130 covers for Marvel.
