Don Perlin, Co-Creator of Moon Knight, Has Passed

Don Perlin passed on May 14th, 2024. He was 94 years old and responsible for contributing to the creation of characters as recent as Bloodshot, but he actually broke into the comic-boo biz in the 1940s! The thing that I most appreciated Perlin for, however, was how he co-created Moon Knight. He was working at Marvel and drew a big chunk of, "Werewolf by Night," including the issues that introduced Moon Knight which he did with writer  Doug Moench. Thanks to these two gentlemen we have my favorite comic-book character and without their initial work, we wouldn't have all the people who built off of it and made Moon Knight even more popular. Another amazing talent gone; he will be missed.
