Gene Colan

Sherlock Holmes by gaslight

Gene Colan was one of the premier artists of the Silver Age of comics.  During his career he worked for both DC and Marvel and is probably best known for his work on "Daredevil", "The Tomb of Dracula" and the Batman titles.

Back in 2006, Mr. Colan posted on his site that he would be taking a few "retirement" commssions.  I was lucky to get on his list early.  A great piece by a legend in the comic industry.


  1. Superb artwork! Captures the essence of Sherlock Holmes in his Victorian glory :)

    Always a pleasure to meet a fellow Sherlockian. Welcome to the blogosphere.


    1. Thanks, it's always great to hear from another Sherlockian.

      I've been meaning to do this for a few years and hope to post a few pieces now and then work on one a week. I have enough pieces to keep me going for a while.

  2. Neil, as always, I love seeing your art as much as yoh enjoy seeing mine. Great stuff.
