Our Thoughts Are With Joe Phillips

whitekingLJoe Phillips was a major player in the nineties comics industry and was a founder of Gaijin Studios, the long standing comic art studios that would include Brian Stelfreeze, Adam Hughes, Cully Hamner, Jason Pearson, Dave Johnson, Tony Harris, Karl Story, Georges Jeanty and Laura Martin.

 

He is currently in surgery to have his foot amputated, as a complication of diabetes.

Joe doesn't work much in comics these days save a small job here and there, and I understand that he has no insurance. He would probably appreciate a kind word from friends.
