Comic Legend Dick Giordano Dies

Always sad news...


In case you haven't heard, comic legend Dick Giordano died this morning. Giordano was a penciler, inker and editor best known for his work with Charlton Comics and DC Comics. Early this morning, Bob Layton made the announcement.

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

It is my sorrowful duty to announce that legendary artist/editor/entrepreneur Dick Giordano passed away today.
Few could ever hope to match what he accomplished in his chosen profession, or to excel while maintaining great humor, compassion for his peers and an unwavering love for the art form.
His unique vision changed the comic industry forever and all of those who work in the business continue to share in the benefits of his sizable contributions.
I have been honored to call him a business partner, mentor and dear friend throughout the majority of my lifetime.
We will not see his like again.
 
Regretfully,

Bob Layton



It's always sad when we have to discuss the passing of a person. Let's help celebrate Dick's life and think happy thoughts to his family and friends. 


 
Dick Giordano: July 20, 1932 - March 27, 2010.

Being fairly new to comics, I'd never heard of him before, but the work sampled here is really something. So sad.

Saw him all the time at these small conventions in Tampa area. Always seemed like a nice guy, very down to earth and always smiling. This is sad.
