Dick Giordano 1932-2010

The legendary Dick Giordano passed away in march 2010, 77 years old.

When one thinks of legendary personalities in this business, Giordano quickly pops up in the top three. Hired by Carmine Infantino in the late 60’s as an editor and if not for him, we would not have had the Charlton Comics characters over at DC, and some may theorize without that, we may never have had Watchmen since Giordano also had a helping hand in creating the Vertigo imprint.

We all know his work from DC's super heroes, and his style was well reconitonable.

Some of his later work was for Egmont, Sweden, on the Phantom (Fantomet). The latest in Fantomet-13-2007.
