Marie Severin
Marie Severin (August 21, 1929August 29, 2018) was an American comics artist and colorist best known for her work for Marvel Comics and the 1950s' EC Comics. She was inducted into the Will Eisner Comics Hall of Fame in 2001.

When Esquire magazine requested an artist to illustrate a story "on the college drug culture", Marvel production manager Sol Brodsky offered Severin rather than one of the regular artists, who were on deadline. Her illustration for the magazine led Marvel editor-in-chief Stan Lee to assign her the feature "Doctor Strange in Strange Tales", replacing Bill Everett. Severin was Marvel's head colorist until 1972, at which point she turned most of her coloring duties over to George Roussos so that she could do more penciling assignments.

For Disney, she worked on Disney Adventures and Dragonslayer comics. She also worked on Star Wars and Ewoks comics.

She died 8 days after her 89th birthday.
