April 2010: DeZuniga's Facebook account had the announcement today (Sept 29, 2010). DeZuniga drew a lot of DC Comics over his long career, particularly Jonah Hex, a character he recently worked on again for a special book from DC Comics.
DeZuniga was at the Club Batman 20th Anniversary Expo in Malaga, Spain, and was apparently traveling home to California when the stroke happened. (Club Batman Facebook Page). here's a screenshot from the Club Batman Facebook photo page showing Tony DeZuniga autographing at the expo.
