Today is a sad day for comic fans, especially Silver Age DC comic book fans, specifically fans of The Flash, as artist, Carmine Infantino, has died at the age of 87, after a long illness. I first started reading / buying comic books back in 1975 and DC Comics / The Flash were amongst my first comic book favorites. Although Carmine Infantino wasn't drawing the Flash in the 1970s, whenever I'd see earlier Flash comics drawn by Infantino, I'd snatch them up and even though I really disliked his late 1970s / 1980s art style that seemed too rely too much on the use of a T Square ruler (his Star Wars and Spider-Woman comics for Marvel were especially annoying to me) his art was always very kinetic.
Carmine Infantino also went on to be the editorial director, and even later, the publisher of DC Comics, but to myself and most comic fans, he'll mostly be remembered for the big part he played in ushering DC's Silver Age, primarily The Flash. Thanks for all the entertainment and great comics, Mr. Infantino.
