Various sources have confirmed that legendary Comic Book Creator Carmine Infantino has passed away.

Thank you for everything, Mr. Infantino. Comic books were richer because of you.

Gahhh, it's a bad day for R.I.P.'s. First Jane "Mother of Muppets" Henson yesterday, then Roger Ebert this afternoon, and now Carmine Infantino. I didn't always like his stuff, but when he was on man was he ON. I also remember Dick Giordano (of all the talented people!) praising CI for taking a goodly long time giving him as an artistic n00b an impromptu tutorial-workshop on drawing hands - nothing stingy about him, I gather.

Any artist worth his or her pen would agree on that one, on Facebook I saw that George Perez was quick to eulogise Mr Infantino as an inspiration, and Brian Bolland was one of the first to agree.

You know what of his I loved? Back in the Silver Age, in one of the DC midlist titles - Flash? Green Lantern? Green Arrow? - he'd draw these Ralph & Sue Dibny, Elastic Detectives backup stories. His loose pencil style was perfect for Ralph. I'll have to see if I can dig some of those out.

An astonishing talent, responsible for the look and design of so many memorable characters and concepts.

A real loss to the comics world.

A great loss, but an amazing legacy. The industry wouldn't have been the same without him.

Damn, that's a shame! His style was so distinct and fine to look at. I spent many a happy childhood hour reading the stories he drew.

I wasn't a fan of his style, personally, but he was undeniably one of the most influential of the comics greats and by all accounts a wonderful guy to work with. Rest in peace, Mr. Infantino.

This guy basically was the silver age of comics. I have a trade collection re-print of the early Flash stories he drew. They are wonderfully zany and have stories when the Flash gets turned into a piece of the sidewalk. Awesome stuff.

I would rank him with Gene Colan and Frank Quitely as artists who mastered a highly unique style that may not have been suited for every character, but when they were on the right book, man, could (can, in Quitely's case) they cook.
