Deadpool Artist Bong Ty Dazo Has Died

Industry figures have told us that comic book artist Bong Ty Dazo has died.

A comic book artist from the Philippines, he began in comic career 30 years ago in 1988, working most prominently for Marvel, Dark Horse, and 451 Media.

He is probably best known for his many, many comics starring Deadpool.

But he also drew Star Wars: Knights of the Republic for Dark Horse and series such as Thunderbolts, Shadowland: Moon Knight, Markings, Bad Moon Rising, Aether and Empire, and Side-Kicked. 

He was also an actor, and a production designer for the Philippine Educational Theater Association.

I understand he passed away after being diagnosed with liver cancer. Dazo is survived by his wife and two children.
