André Coelho Passed Away, Aged 35. Today's Flash Sees Some Of His Final Work.

coelhoBrazilian artist André Coelho, passed away around three weeks ago. He was only 35. 

Today's Flash #36 represents some of his final work, unfinished at his time of death, the comic concluded by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund. Norm tells me that André only got to see two pages of his pencils inked before he died, but was very excited at what he saw.

The comic book, published by DC Comics today, is dedicated in his memory.


Notable works from Andre in the US included the Suicide Squad oneshots, Amanda Waller and Futures End, as well as X-Men and Ms Marvel and the Boom comic, Cover Girl. You can see much of his work on his blog, deviantArt account and Twitter feed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
