In his unprecedented 60-year career, Carmine Infantino has practiced nearly every job that there is in the field of comics for a, Who's Who list of publishers. But Infantino will always be remembered as the personification of DC Comics' Silver Age. Infantino helped to resurrect the dying comics industry in 1956, as the artist who launched the Silver Age with his co-creation; the Flash and remains the best remembered Flash artist of all-time. Infantino proved one of the all-time, great sci-fi artists with his elegant, cityscaped Adam Strange. The only sci-fi comic to ever rival the sales of Adam Strange was Star Wars, to which Infantino also contributed.
In 1964, he became indispensable to the Batman legacy. He, with editor Julius Schwartz, saved the Caped Crusader's comics from impending cancellation with the "New Look." Infantino also redesigned the Batmobile and with Schwartz, created Batgirl, all of which had a significant impact on the Batman TV-show and movie of mid-to-late '60s. In 1971,Infantino became Publisher and ultimately, President of DC Comics. Infantino's brave corporate moves include: comic books of pulp characters; the Shadow and Tarzan, the innovative; Adams / O'Neil Green Lantern-Green Arrow series, Jack Kirby Fourth World saga, the revival of Captain Marvel, pay raises, royalties, and the return of originals to artists. Comic Buyer's Guide's recent Millennium poll of comics professionals ranked Infantino, second only to Jack Kirby as the all-time greatest comic book penciler. Infantino made a rare convention appearance at Heroes Con 2000 to premiere his new, illustrated autobiography, The Amazing World of Carmine Infantino. This ultimate insider's story is Infantino's own history
of comics, through his experiences, from the industry's primordial, Golden Age, through his artistic achievements, corporate years at DC Comics, and post-corporate years including his animation work, teaching, return as a top artist to DC, and Batman newspaper strip.
The living embodiment of American comic-book history, ladies and gentlemen, I give you, Carmine Infantino!
