DC Comics artist Robson Rocha has passed way

Rest in peace, Robson Rocha.

DC Comics artist Robson Rocha has passed away due to COVID-19-related complications. The news came earlier today when comics creators shared their sympathies over social media. Last week, ComicBook.com reported Brazilian artist Fabi Marques asked for blood donations over social media to help Rocha who has been battling COVID-19.

Yildiray Cinar posted “So sorry to learn that Robson Rocha left us today. RIP Robson. So young and early… My condolences to his family, his loved ones and all his fans” and many other comic creators across the world followed suit.

Chief Creative Officer-Publisher Jim Lee also took to Twitter to offer condolences.

Rocha broke into comics in 2010 and signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics in 2016. Rocha worked on New 52 titles, Future State, and the Aquaman reboot written by Kelley Sue DeConnick.

DeConnick confirmed Robson has been battling COVID-19 for a while and even seemed to be beating the disease at one point. She tweeted:
