He has a new book coming out this September about the Kennedy assassination:

Full disclosure–I had the honor of working on the book with him.

Ernesto "Ernie" Colón (born July 13, 1931, in Puerto Rico) is an American comics artist known for his wide-ranging career, including working in the fields of children's comics, horror, and nonfiction.

Ernie Colón began his professional career at Harvey Comics as a letterer. He later worked, uncredited, as an artist on titles including Richie Rich and Casper the Friendly Ghost. At Harvey, he met Sid Jacobson, who became his editor and frequent creative partner.

His first confirmed, credited work was penciling and inking the two-page story "Kaleidoscope of Fear" in Wham-O Giant Comics #1 (cover-dated April 1967, published by the toy company Wham-O). He went on to draw three issues of Gold Key Comics' Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom (#24-26, July 1968 – Jan. 1969), and to do much work for Warren Publishing's black-and-white horror-comics magazines Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella.

Colón was an editor for DC Comics from 1982 to 1985. He oversaw titles such as Arion, Lord of Atlantis, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman.

Colón's many artistic credits include Grim Ghost for Atlas/Seaboard; the historical fantasy Arak, Son of Thunder (with writer Roy Thomas); Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld (with writers Dan Mishkin and Gary Cohn) for DC Comics; Airboy for Eclipse Comics; Magnus: Robot Fighter for Valiant Comics; and Damage Control and Doom 2099 for Marvel Comics. Also for Marvel, Colón wrote, drew, colored and lettered the 1988 science-fiction graphic novel Ax.

In the late 1980s, Colón penciled the short-lived Bullwinkle and Rocky series for Marvel's children's imprint Star Comics. Colón returned to Harvey in the early 1990s, and worked on such projects as Monster in My Pocket and Ultraman.
