but I just saw that photoset of Lucy Liu in magician clothes again, and it just made me think that possibly an amazing thing that needs to happen is Lucy Liu as Zatanna and Jonny Lee Miller as Constantine?
I just think that would be pretty awesome. But again, I’m sure that it’s been brought up before, haha.
Carmine Infantino the artist and editor who gave so much to comics including launching the Silver Age has passed away at the age of 87. His long and prolific career had so many important moments but two stand out for me.
In 1947 he co-created Dinah Lance, the Black Canary.
And in 1966, he co-created Barbara Gordon, Batgirl.
That’s two of the most important female characters in DC Comics and in comics.
Last year at NYCC, I was lucky enough to meet Infantino. I brought my copy of the comic above and asked him to sign it for me. (I also showed him my Batgirl sneakers). More importantly I got a chance to thank him for his creation of these two characters and his contributions to comics.
I’m so glad I had the chance. Rest in Peace, Sir.
My condolences to his famiy.
So very, very sad! Like Kirby and Kubert before him, Carmine Infantino’s legacy to comics will never be forgotten.
Another Infantino creation that can’t be ignored is the Barry Allen incarnation of the Flash.
