Steve Dillon Is Most Fondly Remembered For His Stunning Preacher Artwork

It is with great sadness that we report that veteran British comic-book artist Steve Dillon passed away this week, he was 54 years of age. His untimely passing was confirmed by his brother, Glyn Dillon today.

Steve Dillon was best known in the comic-book community for his work on DC/Vertigo’s ‘Preacher’ series, on which he collaborated with writer Garth Ennis. But he is most fondly remembered by myself for his contributions to classic British anthology comic – 2000AD, especially his stunning artwork for Judge Dredd, which was one of my favourite versions of the character.

Steve Dillon also worked for DC Comics and Vertigo on their Hellblazer/Constantine series, and Marvel’s Punisher. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
