Eduardo Barreto passes at age 57

Eduardo Barreto, the former artist for the Judge Parker serial comic strip has passed away at the age of 57. He took over Judge Parker from Harold LeDoux in 2006 but had to end his association with the strip in 2010 after contracting meningitis. Previous to Judge Parker, he worked on several comic books such as The New Teen Titans, Atari Force, The Shadow Strikes and DC Comics Presents.

Woody Wilson, the writer for Judge Parker, posted his respects on Facebook.

A very sad day for all of us who loved and had the good fortune of working with the great Eduardo Barreto. He made my Judge Parker scripts come alive with beautiful women and chiseled men. He will be missed by all who came in contact with him. RIP, mi amigo.

Condolences to both the Barreto family and his friends and associates.

Heard the news yesterday and was shocked. I had emailed him when he took over the Phantom Sunday strip this past July. He indicated that he was getting stronger and hoping to take on more projects. I know he was working on reviving the Secret Agent X-9 strip for King with Christopher Mills. And, as usually, it looked GREAT!

He will be missed. Just a true, true talent. Farewell, mi Amigo. RIP.
