Carmine Infantino, 1925-2013
Carmine Infantino passed away this week. He was a legend in the comics industry. He had a huge part in ushering in the silver age of comics. He kept Batman from cancellation. He had a hand in the creation of the silver age Flash, a.k.a. Barry Allen (Wikipedia). My dad ordered me Carmine Infantino's autobiography, Amazing World of Carmine Infantino, some years ago. It's a great book. Since the news of Carmine Infantino's passing, I've started reading it again. Carmine Infantino has played a huge part in the history of comics. He was much loved, and he will be greatly missed.
