RIP Carmine Infantino (1925-2013)

Got the sad news over at George Perez's Facebook page.
Jim Lee, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher commented, “Carmine was a legend. The number of classic covers he created are innumerable. His influence, reach and impact is humbling and will always live on.”  

“There are few people in this world that have had as much of an impact on the industry as Carmine,” added DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio.  “He bridged both the Golden and Silver Ages of comics, shepherding in some of the most successful periods in our history and setting the course of our characters that is still seen today. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will remain forever.”

  1. so sorry to hear this...I am a big fan of his late-period work on Flash, Dial H for Hero, Spider-Woman, etc., and was in fact praising/defending his art over on the Bronze Age Babies blog a little earlier today. Of course I enjoy his Silver Age Flash and Batman, but I also think highly of his very stylized work from the late '70s and '80s.
