The comic book world lost yet another legend. Legendary comic book artist Carmine Infantino passed away at age 87. Here's the press release from DC Comics...

“The entire DC Entertainment family is saddened by the loss of Carmine Infantino,” said Diane Nelson, DC Entertainment President. “His contributions to the comics industry and to DC Comics in particular are immense and impossible to quantify. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans during this difficult time.”

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.”

There's no doubt that the very first Batman comics that were purchased for me by my Mom were drawn by this man...
