Gene Colan Scholarship Launched

Following earlier discussions with the late Gene Colan, writer Clifford Meth has established a Gene Colan Scholarship at the Joe Kubert School.

The much respected comic artist, passed away aged 84 on 23rd June. His work at Marvel, reprinted in many UK comics down the years, included Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Daredevil and Tomb of Dracula and many more. As Forbidden Planet International note in their tribute, his long and distinguished career in comics continued until recent illness forced his retirement.

In lieu of flowers and such, if you would like to contribute to this scholarship in Gene’s memory, please make your check payable to “Joe Kubert School” and mail it to the attention:

Gene Colan Scholarship
c/o Clifford Meth
179-9 Rt. 46 West
NJ 07866

All checks will be delivered to Mike Chen, the school’s coordinator.

If you live outside the US Cliff advises contacting the Kubert School direct regarding making donations by credit card, paypal or other means: www.kubertschool.edu
