NEWS: Mick Anglo 1916-2011

Comics legend Mick Anglo passed away last month, aged 96.

Anglo is perhaps best remembered for the creation of Marvelman, the character he created when UK-based publisher L. Miller and Son was informed that the Captain Marvel stories they'd been reprinting from Fawcett Comics had been cancelled (due to the Fawcett vs National Comics lawsuit.) During his six-year run on the title, he was responsible for over seven-hundred issues of Marvelman, Young Marvelman and Marvelman Family.

A selection of Anglo's works was published last year by Marvel Comics.
