Comic Inker Victor Llamas Passes Away at Age 41

Comic Inker Victor Llamas Passes Away at Age 41Veteran comic book inker Victor Llamas passed away on Friday at the far-too-young age of 41. The cause of death is said to have been medical complications after a lengthy hospital stay.

Llamas got his break with Top Cow, honing his craft on the pencils of artists such as Marc Silvestri, David Finch, Billy Tan, Brandon Peterson and Joe Benitez. He worked on some of the company's top characters like The Darkness, Witchblade, Arcanum and Aphrodite IX as well as non-Top Cow series like Batman, X-Men, Star Wars; Republic and G.I. Joe. He was most recently inking Benitez's work on Wraithborn Redux.

Llamas is survived by his wife, Amy, and three children: Alec, Chase, and Emily. A GoFundMe has been set up for donations that will help with memorial services and family finances. The prolonged hospital stay has been taxing on the families finances and they plan to move back to California to be near family and friends.
