Longtime DC Artist Eduardo Barreto, Passes At 57

Longtime DC artist Eduardo Barreto has passed away at the age of 57, with the cause believed to be related to the meningitis that forced him to stop penciling Judge Parker in 2010.

New Teen Titans, Volume II, #39The Uruguayan Barreto entered the American comic scene in the early 1980s, working primarily during this period for DC. Barreto’s work was most frequently seen on New Teen Titans, Volume II, where he took over penciling duties with #13 and would draw all of but two of the remaining issues before the title became the New Titans with #50.

Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized BiographyBarreto’s best work came in the one-shot Lex Luthor: the Unauthorized Biography, written by James Hudnall. Barreto took a story that many would struggle with artistically – after all, it’s a story about a non-powered sociopath that becomes one of the wealthiest men in the world, which is not something that lends itself to many action shots – and made it into arguably one of the best Lex Luthor stories of the post-Crisis era.

After drawing a Superman book without Superman, Barreto would get his chance to contribute to the legend of the Man of Steel in Superman: Speeding Bullets, a brilliant Elseworlds tale of an infant Kryptonian rescued from a spacecraft by a human couple named Thomas and Martha Wayne.

Barreto’s work would also include memorable runs on The Shadow Strikes!, Atari Force, and Dark Horse’s Aliens/Predator: the Deadliest of the Species. Barreto leaves behind a son, Diego, who is also an artist, and his colorist daughter Andrea.
