Sad to hear of the passing yesterday, at 87, of the legendary DC and MARVEL COMICS artist Carmine Infantino, who brought so much joy to millions through his exciting and innovative work. I'll always personally remember him for his much admired period working on the US MARVEL monthly STAR WARS comics of the late seventies- the intriguing way he translated George Lucas's very visual, action-packed universe set between the original STAR WARS and EMPIRE to the four-colour medium, and for helping to bring in further new and intriguing icons within the early days of what would soon become known as the Expanded Universe...
Gone but not forgotten, Infantino's bravura work will be remembered and celebrated for decades to come.
