Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
as fate would have it, I was just praising his work over on the bronze Age babies blog before I visited your blog and learned the sad news. I really enjoyed his work.
RIP Mr Infantino, artist of my Star Wars youth. I reread all of my Marvel SW comics last year and fell in love once again with them. I know he didn't get much love for his late 70s style, but he had a certain charm that will always remain with me. Thanks for the post, Jason.
I'm just finding this out right here--I can't believe it--Another Great gone--He was awesome--
Indeed, a legend that will be missed.
RIP, a true legend... :(
I know it's probably considered heresy but I was not a fan of his Star Wars work when I was a kid and even now. This first panel of Luke always bugged me.http://4.bp.blogspot.com/__akmiKSkgAg/S4NHMJ4yrjI/AAAAAAAAAt8/kV2pDXeHSQI/s1600/2.jpg
Like Matt, I've been sharing my great memories of reading the Flash. Just picked up ish 300 from a dollar bin at the LCS. STILL love the nice clean stylish layouts and speed depictions. Never a muscle-bound hero, he drew the Flash as he should have been, light on his feet.The Flash never had a better life-long friend. Sleep well, Mr. Infantino and our humble thanks.
Thanks for sharing ...
