Marvel Comics icon, artist Joe Sinnott left us at the age of 93. Sinnott was a longtime inker of Marvel comics books who began when Marvel was taking shape from the 1960s. Sinnott’s ink work helped establish and define many of Marvel’s prominent roles, including the Fantastic Four series he worked on from 1965 to 1981.
Sinnott’s name joins Marvel’s biggest founders, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, so this is another significant loss for the Marvel fandom, surely. Sinnott’s family posted on this on his death on Facebook, “He went peacefully …”
The Sinnott family requests their privacy and understanding during this difficult time. Please send condolences to:

Thank you again for being such loyal and dedicated fans and friends to Joe. He considered all fans friends, and seeing you at cons and reading your messages was what kept him young at heart.
RIP Joe Sinnott
October 16, 1926 – June 25, 2020″
Sinnott identifies with one of the last names of the silver age of Marvel’s creation. One of the biggest losses in recent years is undoubtedly the death of Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee, who died in November 2018. As the Marvel brand and its characters are now one of the largest franchises in the world, so Sinnott’s legacy is alive a long time after him.
RIP Joe Sinnott – October 16, 1926 – June 25, 2020.
