Whilce Portacio
Born
Nationality Filipino-American
Area(s) Penciller, Inker

Whilce Portacio was born in Sangley Point, Cavite City, Philippines on July 8, 1963. He is known today as a Filipino-American comic book artist. Portacio started out as an inker at Marvel Comics in 1985. Over time, he was given assignments as a penciller as well. Portacio became noted for his work on such titles as The Punisher, X-Factor, and the Uncanny X-Men. However, in 1992, Portacio left Marvel to co-found Image Comics with six other high-profile artists. But, Portacio quickly withdrew from his partnership in this enterprise due to his sister's bout with lupus, eventually publishing his title Wetworks through Jim Lee's Wildstorm imprint in 1994. Other notable series that Portacio has worked on include Stone and Marvel's controversial Heroes Reborn storyline within Iron Man. Image File history File links Whilce_portacio. ...

In August, 2000, Whilce fell into a diabetic coma as a result of a failing pancreas. He woke up a week later, thirty pounds lighter, and unable to walk, let alone stand or even draw. It was six months before he was able to pick up a pencil and draw. It would be a year before he was able to draw any semblance of his previous artistry.
