Wow! Where to start? From his seminal work at Charlton Comics to his legendary team-ups with Neal Adams on Batman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow to his DC editorialship during the 80s bringing us such stuff as Crisis On Infinite Earths.....a class act all the way.
Man, this a bummer. One of the GREATS, and my Heroes is gone.
Definitely one of the greats and a big part of my childhood enjoyment and memories of comics.
wow, loved his Charlton stuff and his early DC work especially. RIP.
Goodnight, Dick Giordano :(
Read my blog at Moongem Comics about comics, toys and more.
DAMN...this really bothers me in a way I never imagined.
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing Man
RIP Mr. Giordano and Thank You for ALL the wonderful stories told through your art and everything you've given us.
I'm not the Droid you are looking for...Move Along!
I corresponded with him recently, asking about his Mego artwork. He was very gracious with his time and responses, but unfortunately, he didn't recall much about the various projects he did for Mego. But nontheless, it was a thrill to get an email from one of my heroes. I only wish I had the chance to meet him in person.
I read Rob's blog on his Aquaman Shrine, and I have to say I agree completely with his estimation of Giordano's being the quintessential version of the DC characters. His style and storytelling was solid and dynamic at the same time. By all accounts he was one of the best editors, and nicest guys, ever to work in comics.
Comics are a lot less fun today.
A true legend in the field of comics is gone and the world feels the vacuum left behind. Sad, sad, sad.
It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.
Sad news. All the names I grew up reading are going away. :(
