American comic book artist Gene Colan (1 September 1926 – 23 June 2011) was one of the premiere Silver Age artists for Marvel Comics during the 1960s and 1970s. In addition to co-creating the Falcon (the first African-American superhero introduced in mainstream American comics) and Blade (the basis for the Blade film series), he is widely known for his critically acclaimed work on a range of Marvel comic titles, including Tales to Astonish, Daredevil, Tomb of Dracula, Howard the Duck, Captain America and Dr. Strange. Throughout the 1980s, he drew a range of titles published by DC Comics, including Batman and Detective Comics, Wonder Woman, Jemm, Son of Saturn, Nathaniel Dusk, Night Force and Silverblade. Colan’s storied career in comics dates back to 1944, when he first began doing illustration work for Fiction House. He is affectionately remembered by fans around the world as ‘Gentleman’ Gene Colan, and over the course of his legendary career he worked in virtually every genre ever touched by the comic book medium, including romance, adventure, mystery, science-fiction, humour, war, westerns and crime, in addition to his acclaimed work within the superhero genre. His moody, cinematic art style made his work instantly recognisable. In this interview (undertaken via email in 2007) he discussed the evolution of his career in comics.
