The news of Jeffrey Huet’s passing was initially shared by Carlo Pagulayan on Facebook. Pagulayan went to school with Huet and both achieved their dreams of working in the comic industry. They even worked together on a couple of major projects. These included Marvel’s Fantastic Four and Planet Hulk.

Marvel Entertainment shared confirmation of his passing on Twitter Monday, as well as condolences. Attached to this tweet are two images of artwork that Huet worked on. One is of Hulk from Huet’s work on the Planet Hulk event for Hulk in 2006. It features Hulk fighting the Silver Surfer. The other is an image of Skaar, Hulk’s son, and it’s one of the most recognizable images of the character. Huet’s work with Hulk was some of his finest and it will likely be what he is best known for among comic fans. He lived and worked in the Philippines.

Jeffrey Huet also spent some time working with DC Comics on a few issues of Animal Man and an issue of Birds of Prey. However, he predominantly worked with Marvel and that is likely what most fans will associate him with. He worked on issues of Iron-Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., X-Men: First ClassAvengers Academy, and Ultimate Armor Wars. In addition to these works, he also worked on comics with Finem Mundi Publishing. He did LEGO Marvel and LEGO DC comics with Blue Ocean Entertainment – a German company with magazine and comic publications. Huet’s inks were stunning and his mark has certainly been left on the comic industry.

Comic creators within the industry who worked with him have also shared their condolences on social media. These include inker Diana Greenhalgh (who worked with him at Marvel), artist Gabriel Negri (who worked with him on the LEGO comics), and artist Mico Suayan (who worked with him on a never published Valiant project). Jeffrey Huet left a positive impression on his fellow comic creators and his art was highly regarded. His work, particularly on Hulk with Marvel Comics, will not be forgotten and will continue to be lauded by fans. Rest in peace.
