Carlos Pacheco dead at 60

Down the Tubes informs that Spanish comics artist-writer Carlos Pacheco has sadly died at age 60:
I’m very sorry to report the death of award-winning Spanish comic artist Carlos Pacheco, who has died aged just 60.

Earlier this year, he announced he had been diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease or Motor Neuron Disease).

Such is his stature in his home town of San Roque, where a street is already named after him, he is to be honoured with two days of official mourning for the local hero; the mayor has specially opened the funeral chapel at the Palace of the Governors.
The work he did that I appreciate most was his art for Fantastic Four and Avengers in the late 1990s (his first work was for Marvel's UK division, which is now largely defunct). It's a terrible shame an artist who was talented has departed at much too young an age.

However, it's sad to note that, as the following reminds, Pacheco regrettably was involved with politcized content too:
“The best part of working in comics is not when the book is published, it’s when you first see the art,” notes writer David Walker, “before it’s been inked or colored, when there are no words covering anything. Every time Carlos Pacheco sent over the pencils for Occupy Avengers, it was like getting a birthday present. His work was always amazing, and our brief time working together was an incredible honour. Much love and deepest condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P.”
It's a shame Pacheco was willing later to work with people who have no true love for Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's creations, and are only interested in exploiting them for the sake of one-sided leftist agendas that make those of the past century look tame by comparison. Walker's book was shameful, and Pacheco shouldn't have wasted his artwork on that.

I think Pacheco was a very good artist back in the day. That's why it's a sad shame he had to add far-left propaganda his list of job assignments in later years.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
