Sad news to report this morning, as famed Batman artist Norm Breyfogle has died.
Breyfogle, who also lent his talents to such titles as American Flagg and Marvel Fanfare, passed away this past weekend at the age of 58. Details of his death are unknown at this time.
In 1987, he was recruited by DC Comics to revive the Detective Comics title. Breyfogle would draw The Dark Knight for six years, and was instrumental in redesigning Robin in the 1990's. He would also aid in the creation of such famed DC villains as the Ventriloquist and Scarface.
Breyfogle would also work as a penciler on such books as Shadow Of The Bat, Batman: The Abduction, Anarky and The Spectre among others. He would move on to Malibu Comics to provide art for the Prime series, and would kickstart his own title in 1994 with Metaphysique.
Breyfogle was also a noted novelist and poet.
We've always had a special place in our hearts for Mr. Breyfogle's art, as it was his work on DC's Shadow Of The Bat that served as one of our very first exposures to The Dark Knight on the printed page - and seriously, no one could draw a cape quite like Norm!
The staff here at Infinite Earths wish to express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Breyfogle. May fond memories comfort you during this trying time!
Rest In Peace, Mr. Breyfogle! Thanks for everything!
