Dijjo Lima's Twitter portrait

Brazilian comic book colorist and graphic designer Dijjo Lima has reportedly died, aged just 34. Lima’s fellow Brazilian, artist Mike Deodato, announced the news on Twitter, stating, “I just heard this great colorist and teacher has died. My condolences to his family, friends and students.” A cause of death was not given. Lima colored over 100 titles for various publishers, including Marvel, Titan Comics, Red 5, Scout Comics, and more.

Lima, full name Diego do Nascimento Lima, was born in Fortaleza, Ceará (northeast Brazil) on February 8, 1988. He studied visual effects, and worked in advertising, before breaking into the English comic book market with Dynamite’s “Lady Demon” in 2014. He began coloring several Doctor Who spin-offs for Titan with “Doctor Who: Ghost Stories” in 2016, and also colored the company’s 2018 “Assassin’s Creed: Origins” comic.

In 2019, he helped launch Red 5’s post-apocalyptic series “Dark Age.” Two years later, he made his debut at Marvel with “Wolverine” #18, and went on to color the limited series “X Deaths of Wolverine,” “Amazing Spider-Man,” and Ram V and Francesco Manna’s “Carnage,” as well as stories in the “Marvel Voices” anthologies, and “Devil’s Reign: Omega.” He also colored the Scout titles “The Mall,” and “Unikorn.”

At the time of his death, Lima was set to continue coloring “Carnage,” and the “A.X.E.: Judgment Day” tie-in “Death to the Mutants.” “Wolverine” writer Benjamin Percy has paid tribute to Lima, stating he was “very sad to hear the news about Dijjo, even as I’m grateful that we had the chance to work together. He was talented and kind and has left us way, way too soon.”
