Dick Giordano, 1932-2010

It's sad to learn that Dick Giordano, one of the most famous inkers/artists and editors, has passed away at 77 years old. While not without flaws, he was one of the better contributors to comics in his time.

Plus, he also expressed regret at his own role in darkening comics.

Another legend gone :'(

R.I.P. Mr. Giordano

Another great one has gone on to Comic Book Valhalla. D.G. was a class act, no doubt about it. I remember reading not too long ago that he regretted being one of the people involved in the "darkening" of super-heroes that started with "Watchmen" and "The Dark Knight" and has continued ever since. I doubt he ever envisioned anything like the crap that's being produced today back in the mid-1980s.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
