Susan Daigle-Leach

Susan Daigle-Leach (born 1960), also known as Susan F. Daigle[1] and Sue Daigle,[2] is an American comic book and cover colorist, letterist, production manager, illustrator, and fine artist, known mostly for her work during the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s with Disney licensees Gladstone Publishing (1987-1998) and Gemstone Publishing (2003-2008) where she was the main colorist next to her husband Gary A. Leach and Scott Rockwell.

In 1983, Daigle-Leach graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania,[1] and in 1987 began working for Another Rainbow and Gladstone Publishing.

While at Gladstone and Gemstone, Daigle-Leach colored 17,000 pages of the entire Disney comics by Carl Barks for the 141-volume Carl Barks Library in Color (1991-1996) alone[3] (not to be confused with Another Rainbow's earlier, 30-volume Carl Barks Library published 1983-1990 in b/w), as well as the North-American editions of most of the Disney comics by Don Rosa. In 1995, Daigle-Leach was nominated for the prestigious Will Eisner Award - Best Colorist for her work at Gladstone.[2][4] In 2007 and 2008 respectively, she was nominated for a Harvey Award in the same category for her work at Gemstone.[5][6]
