Hi Folks: If

If you are in your twenties or thirties, you might not be too aware of who Carmine Infantino is.Â He was the long time editor-in-chief and/or publisher of DC comics, but before that he was simply an outstanding artist.Â Here is a fantastic interview with Mr. Infantino.
By todayâ€™s overwrought standards, Carmineâ€™s drawings may seem a bit quaint.Â But, upon closer inspection, youâ€™ll find rock solid draftsman.Â His â€œFlash of Two Worldsâ€ cover is still one of the most referenced comic covers in history.
As many of you know, I love Silver Age comics.Â Carmine Infantino may never have been a superstar artist, but as a publisher he had a profound impact on the comics industry.
My old friend Mike, who was very into Silver Age comics too, and I used to discuss the merits and perceived failings of artists like Carmine Infantino, Don Heck, Sal Buscema, and other of the workhorse artists.Â Mike has been gone for a few years now, but I still remember the passionate fanboy arguments and the laughing that wentÂ them.Â Good times.
Carmine says this will be his last interview.Â While not unexpected, this does sadden me a bit.Â Heroes should never get older.
