BILL DUBAY (JAN 11, 1948 - APR 15, 2010)
MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD learned today that Bill DuBay, best known for his lengthy stint as editor of Warren Publications' line of comics magazines, died in Portland, Oregon from colon cancer on April 15, 2010.
Mr. Dubay was born in San Francisco, California on January 11, 1948. He was active in comics fandom in the early 1960's and ended up landing a job writing humor for Charlton, and later, Marvel.
He was hired by Warren in 1970 and wrote stories and contributed art as well. After Archie Goodwin, Bill Parente and others, he became full-time editor of the Warren's comics line and remained so off and on until Warren ceased publishing. He then went on to Archie Comics where he tried unsuccessfully to revive the Red Circle super hero line. His last major projects were with 20th Century Fox's Kids Programming.
