Comic book artist Richard Corben, who created the cover for Meat Loaf's landmark Bat Out of Hell album, has died at the age of 80.



His widow, Dona, shared the news on his studio's Facebook page, noting that Corben died last week.

"It is with great sorrow and loss that I must share the sad news that Richard Corben died Dec. 2, 2020, following heart surgery," she wrote.


"He will be missed tremendously by his family, his friends, and his fans. Richard was very appreciative of the love for his art that was shown by you, his fans. Your support over the decades meant a great deal to him. He tried to repay your support by working diligently on each piece of art going out to you. Although Richard has left us, his work will live on and his memory will live always in our hearts."




He also did a lot art for the magazine Heavy Metal.  Was my favourite comic book artist back then.

RIP Mr. Corben....RIP.
