RIP Carmine Infantino (1925-2013)

Carmine Infantino
I am greatly saddened to report that legendary Silver Age comic book artist and editor Carmine Infantino passed away yesterday at the age of 87. He is probably best remembered for reinventing the Flash (Barry Allen), thus ushering in the Silver Age of Comics, as well as being the co-creator of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon). He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

  1. I don't follow comics, but I'm sure you're right, these are some real classic. My dad is the same age, bet he knowns the name.
