Remembering Raoul Vezina

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Smilin' Ed Comics

Raoul Vezina was an artist, cartoonist, musician and all-around-good-guy who passed away in 1983 at the age of just 35 years old. Back in the day, he was often the first face that you would see when you walked into what was then Albany’s premier comic book store, FantaCo, located at 21 Central Avenue.

Vezina also created FantaCo’s rascally mascot, Smilin’ Ed Smiley, who starred in a series of four comics published by FantaCo.

Now Raoul’s sister, Maria Vezina, and FantaCo honcho Tom Skulan have compiled all of the Smilin’ Ed Smiley stories – including some that were not included in the final issue – into one big 160-page paperback book. The book, titled “Smilin’ Ed Comics: Da Complete Collection!!!,” will also feature 16 pages in full-color and lots of previously unpublished artwork by Vezina.

But they need your help…
