R.I.P. Artist Dick Giordano

Dick Giordano Passes Away at 77

Mainly known as an artist and editor for DC Comics. I grew up reading his works. I saw him several times at conventions. He was a sweetheart of a guy and there was never a bad word said about him, which was extremely rare in that industry.

I expect the iPad to create a resurgence of comic books. I’m very likely to go back to reading some of them. And I’ll probably collect “e-reprints” of ones I used to own when they were on paper. I hope this will lead others to discover the work of Dick Giordano too.

And here’s a very interesting interview with him: Dick Giordano Explains Why Romance is so Difficult (in Comics!)
