Artist Carlos Meglia Dies at Age 50


I just found at that Carlos Meglia, the Argentinian born comic book artist and penciller, died today. Reports are saying that he was admitted to hospital due to some sort of problem with his aorta. The cause of his death is, as yet, unconfirmed. He was 50 years old when he passed away.

Carlos Meglia began his career in 1974 as the assistant of the illustrator Oswal.
One of his best-known creations was the 1991 series, Cybersix, done in partnership with Carlos Trillo.

During the 1990s, he relocated to Spain and started working for the US comic market. He worked on titles such as Star Wars: Underworld and Spyboy, for Dark Horse. His DC work included Superman/Tarzan: Sons of the Jungle, Crimson, Adventures of Superman and Monster World. He also did some art for Marvel on Elektra. In 2005, he created the series Canari with Crisse.

    fyi - that superman tarzan cover art you posted is by Humberto Ramos. Meglia did the interiors of that book, however.

    Ahh, thanks. I wrote this while at work the other day. I should have checked sources when I got home. I thought it looked a bit like Ramos, with the chunky physique etc. I’ll correct it straight away.
