R.I.P. Carmine Infantino

We have lost one of the greats of the Silver Age, as legendary artist and former head of DC Comics, Carmine Infantino has passed away. Our condolences to his friends and family.


Wow—-Ebert the same day? I didn’t realize Infantino was still alive; I feel very ignorant at the moment.

That’s a shame. Great man, great contributions to the industry. RIP, Mr. Infantino.

The positive thing is Carmine knew just how celebrated and important he was in his chosen profession. A giant in the game.

RIP Carmine Infatino

He was one of the best. Sad news.

George Gladir went today as well. I am of the personal opinion that Silver Age Archie is the great comic of all time, so I’ll throw out a request that he either gets his own obit or this topic gets updated to acknowledge both men both in its title and content.

One of our titans, and a personal favorite. He’s got a seat in Comic Book Valhalla.

“Titan” is a perfect word for it.
My God the man was talented and left behind so many beautiful pages and covers and so many wonderful characters.
I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Infantino in New York about five or six years ago now at a convention.
So glad I had that opportunity and so sad that he is gone.

Not a good day for keeping awesome people on the Planet Earth.

It’s almost impossible for me to think of the Flash without my brain immediately flashing an image of an Infantino/Giella rendition of the character. Nothing else ever seems quite “right” to me.

He will be missed.
