I saw him last at his local Albany show in November.

Always a class act every time I saw him.

RIP Joe Sinnott.

Sad news. I remember I had him sign my Giant Size Fantastic Four #4 a few years ago at Terrificon. It was a comic he said he had not seen in a while. His enthusiasm and joy of flipping through the book to look at his work is something I'll never forget.

Had the pleasure of meeting him at East Coast Comic Con 2019. Went there just for him. Great man and artist, very nice. Got some books signed, glad I did.

RIP “Joltin Joe”..

Another huge loss. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times, and he was the nicest and most humble guy in the world. He genuinely loved hearing from the people at cons and enjoyed seeing his work being treated with such reverence and respect. I called him Gentleman Joe Sinnott. RIP sir.

Rest In Peace Joltin’ Joe Sinnott

I may have posted this on here before, but it’s such an awesome story that I have to share it again.

In 1978, when I was ten years old, Joe sketched the Human Torch for me in a library parking lot. I had the chance to share that sketch with him last year. An unforgettable experience for me!! Check out the story behind this sketch at:

Three books that Joe signed for me at that library in 1978 are with CBCS now for VSP.

Sad yes, but also incredible to think about the life he must have lived in those 93 years. Born in 1926 at the end of the roaring 20's. The man experienced 11 different decades. Grew up through the depression of the 1930's. Turned 18 just barely in time to participate in the end of WWII (can't be more than a handful of WWII vets still living). Came home to scratch out a living doing something he loved, creating an artistic legacy while raising the Baby Boomer generation. And then to spend the last 30 or more years going to Shows to meet and talk with all those adoring fans, putting a face to all those people who had been enjoying his work for all those years. Awesome life for sure.

Speaking of 1950 St John Mopsy #12 - Joe's 1st published art - I thought I'd show this.
Joe got a big smile when I asked him to sign this copy.

It took me about 5 years to find this issue on Ebay btw.
I had a search item for Mopsy 12 all that time and it never showed until one day an auction popped up. I had no intention of losing the auction
