The Hero Initiative reports that the legendary artist was hospitalized earlier this week with pneumonia, but its likely that Colan should be out of the hospital sometime today.
Gene Colan’s wife Adrienne informs us that Gene was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York early in the morning on Monday, Aug. 10 by ambulance.
All is looking okay, and best guess is that Gene might be laid up in hospital for a few days. In fact, steady improvement could get him home by late Wednesday-early Thursday. He has pneumonia in his right lung behind his heart, and possibility of infection of some fluids. Some Encephalopathy-related difficulties may be going on, too.

Good to hear that it doesn’t seem that serious, and we send out our hopes for a speedy recovery and some more gorgeous Captain America covers like the above.
