Liz Berube – RIP

It is being reported that cartoonist Liz Berube has passed away.

Elizabeth Ann Safian (Liz) Berube
January 7, 1943 – January 15, 2021


Writer/artist for comic books, Liz spent most of her comics career as a comic book colorist. From the late 1960s to the early 1970s and signing as “elizabeth” she contributed pages to the DC romance comics drawn in her attractive individual style.

From a 2012 interview:

I don’t know what you would call my “style”… it flowed. Graceful, sensual and fun. What can I say? It’s what came out, when I put pencil to paper. My mom was artistic, in many ways and some of her style (the hair) rubbed off. I was a big fan of Art Deco and Art Nouveau… Alphonse Mucha. I imagine that rubbed off, as well – as there is nothing really new, under the sun and consciously or subconsciously – we all “borrow” from each other. Art, Music, Cinema… the works. Mostly I was concerned with something looking beautiful.


From 1967 to 1968, as Elizabeth Ann Safian, she created Karen, a syndicated comic strip.
