Newsarama.com : Report: Legendary Artist CARMINE INFANTINO Dead at 87.

   A sad day for the world of Comic Books and those of us who collect and read them. Mr. Infantino is considered, at least by me, to be the father of the Silver Age of comics. He brought super heroes back into vogue in a time of mystery, science fiction, horror, western and romance comics. Next to Jack “King” Kirby and Julius Schwartz, Carmine Infantino is a hero to me and always shall be.

   Thank you Mr. Infantino. The industry will never be the same without you even though they keep attempting to repeat your success to varying degrees.
