Je rapporte juste une triste nouvelle qu'a fait paraitre le batblog à propos de Sheldon Moldoff.
En effet cet artiste qui a fait vivre le golden age du comics chez Batman (et d'autres) s'est éteint à l'âge de 91 ans.
Il aura dessiné Batman de 1953 à 1967 et l'homme était entre autre le créateur de Batmite, Ace (le bat-chien), Batwoman et le 1ère Batgirl. Il a également co-crée Clayface, Poison Ivy, Dr. Achilles Milo, and Mr. Freeze.
Voilà un artiste majeur donc qui mérite d'être cité.

I have some very sad news to share this morning. The Golden Age Comic Book Artist Sheldon Moldoff died last Wednesday, he was 91. In 1940 he created Hawkman for DC Comics and became a major Cover Artist for many very iconic comic books. His work was always amazing! In the 1950's he became Bob Kane's "Ghost Artist" ( with Kane, of course, taking all the credit ). He drew "Batman" from 1953 to 1967. He was responsible for creating many very iconic characters like Bat-Mite, Ace The Bat-Hound, Batwoman, and the Original Bat-Girl ( Betty Kane ). He also co-created Clayface, Poison Ivy, Dr. Achilles Milo, and Mr. Freeze.
To say that he was extremely important in "Bat-History" is no exaggeration. During his life he became a Cult Hero among Cartoonists, Animators, & other Comic Book Artists. In later life he was seen at a lot of Comic Book Conventions where he loved to meet his Fans. The artwork shown here are some of the Comicon Sketches he did. He will be missed & his contributions to both BATMAN and the Comic Book Industry are unlimited. I'm personally very sad about his passing and wish to extent my deepest condolences to his Friends and Family, "Shelly" will be missed, deeply. R.I.P. Sheldon "Shelly" Moldoff.
