R.I.P. Carlos Meglia

I just heard the sad news that artist Carlos Meglia passed away. I wasn't overly familiar with a lot of his work, but he illustrated one of my all-time favorite Star Wars comic series, Underworld: The Yavin Vassilika . I can't even count the number of times I've flipped through that book just to stare at the art and get inspired by his amazing cartoony style. I also have his Superman: Infinite City book, which I've never even read -- I just bought it because the artwork blows me away.
