The passing of Tony Dezuniga - May 11 , 2012

In observance of the passing of legendary illustrator Tony Dezuniga. The staff of CROM send our condolenses to his wife and family.

Tony was part of the CONAN legacy as he illustrated many a tale and adaptation for Marvel comics’ Savage sword of Conan.
Tony’s work also included Jonah Hex and Shanna the she devil as well as many many other tales of the fantastic and spooky. His unique delineation was a trademark of style and was his signature as you could pretty much tell a Tony Dezuniga job with but a glance. Like so many other greats and legends Tony had a quality to his work unique unto him alone.
Tony Dezuniga will not be forgotten as he leaves behind timeless contributions in the field he loved and in the beautiful work that he created as his trade.

Tony was born in 1941. He was 71 years of age.

!! I just heard this. I met him at Phoenix ComiCon a few years ago and we chatted for quite a while. Super nice guy and fantastic artist. His mark on comic illustration especially Conan will be missed. Sad news.

This is a terrible loss. What a legend in the comic book world and his contribution to the Conan mythos will be felt forever.
