Carmine Infantino

Carmine Infantino

Nationality: American

Biography:
(American, b. 1925) attended both the School of Industrial Arts and the Art Students League in New York City, and broke into comic books as the illustrator of Timely's Jack Frost feature in 1942. In 1946, he began working at DC, illustrating the Golden Age Flash, Green Lantern, the Black Canary, and Johnny Thunder. In the fifties Infantino's drawing style evolved into a streamlined, design-oriented style, said to have been influenced by artists Edd Cartier and Lou Fine. Perhaps Infantino's most celebrated work is his Silver Age version of the Flash, which he drew for eleven years, from 1956 -1967. During this peak period, he also drew the fan-favorite features Adam Strange, Batman, and the origin episode of Deadman. From the late sixties to the late seventies, Infantino served as the Editorial Director and then publisher of DC. He oversaw innovative new titles like Bat Lash, Captain Marvel, Hawk and Dove, Creeper, The Shadow, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Jack Kirby's Fourth World titles, and Joe Kubert's Tarzan comic books. Under his reign many artists became editors at DC for the first time. When Infantino was replaced as an executive at DC, he returned to the art board and drew features for Warren Publishing, Marvel, and DC
