Komiks editor KC Cordero is reporting that veteran Filipino komiks illustrator Nar De Mesa has passed away. Nar has been known for his clean style used appropriately to romance stories for a variety of publications.
Below is a cover that he did for Sinderela Komks in 1969.
I met him briefly in January 2004 and I was immediately struck by his candor and humor about his age, the life that he has lived, and his work.
Nar passed away last Sunday and was buried today, Wednesday. My sincere condolences go to all his family and friends.
Randy Valiente has a touching eulogy at his website:
