Filipino comic book inker Jeffrey Huet has passed away, artist Carlo Pagulayan announced last week on Facebook. Via Bleeding Cool, Huet died after being infected with COVID-19. Pagulayan and Huet were school friends, and they collaborated together on the ‘Planet Hulk/World War Hulk’ arc of Marvel’s “Incredible Hulk” series from 2006 to 2007.

Huet’s other credits included “Ultimate Avengers,” “Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and DC’s “Animal Man” #4-8 (2011-12.) Outside of DC and Marvel, he worked on Mark Millar and Leinil Francis Yu’s “Superior,” Magnetic Press’s “The Adventures of Basil and Moebius” (written by Ryan Schifrin and Larry Hama), and various Bible series for Kingstone Comics, like “Noah,” “Prophets,” and “The Letters.”

Marvel Comics tweeted that “Jeff was a talented inker, bringing some of the most iconic Marvel characters to life in stories including Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, and beyond. Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones.” Diana Greenhalgh, a colleague of Huet at Marvel, shared that he helped her land her first job at the company, and that “for over a decade we had each other’s backs as friends and collaborators/teammates. It’s a weird feeling that he won’t be there anymore.”

Huet is survived by his wife, Bing Gattoc, and their young daughters. Pagulayan has requested donations to help them cover the cost of Huet’s treatment, which is “unfortunately too high” in the Philippines, “and burdens the family even after hospitalization.” Readers outside the country can transfer donations to Pagulayan’s Paypal account, while Filipino fans can donate through other means listed on his Facebook page.
