Kevin O’Neill (1953 – 2022).

§ November 9th, 2022 § Filed under obituary § 4 Comments

Legendary omics artist Kevin O’Neill has passed away, leaving behind beautiful work like Nemesis the Warlock, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Marshal Law, and much more. Of special note is, of course, the artwork he provided for The Sinister Ducks.

And as I love reminding folks, his artwork — not just what he drew, but his actual stylewas rejected by the Comics Code Authority when they saw his contribution to Tales of the Green Lantern Corps Annual #2 (sample of which may be found above). DC published it away without the Code because screw the CCA, the art’s great.

So long, Kevin.

    O’Neill really created some of the most imaginative and disgusting images in comics. That armpit mouth alone gives me the shivers.

    May he rest in peace.

    One of the best and most unique artists to grace the medium. RIP.

    his art was amazing. I have a couple Nemesis the Warlock books, and I used to have that Annual.
