Comic book artist Dan Adkins died last week at age 76. He lived in Reading, Pa.

Adkins worked for several comics publishers from the 1960s through the 1980s. He is perhaps best remembered for a noteworthy run on Strange Tales and Doctor Strange. He contributed pencils, inks or both to many Marvel titles during this period, including Tales to Astonish, The Avengers, Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer, Captain Marvel, Conan the Barbarian and X-Men. At DC, his credits included Detective Comics, Superman Family, Green Lantern, Superboy and Warlord.

Adkins also was a mentor to other popular comics artists, including P. Craig Russell and Paul Gulacy.
