Few names define the Silver Age of comics more than Carmine Infantino.
After studying at Brooklyn’s School of Industrial Art, he cut his teeth at Harry Chesler’s studio in Manhattan. Then he worked for Joe Simon at Timely Comics, starting with Jack Frost in USA Comics #3 in January 1942.
Infantino began his relationship with The Flash in 1947’s “The Secret City” in
All-Flash #31. In 1956 he would reinvent the character, designing the iconic red and yellow costume.
In the early ’60s Stan Lee attempted to lure Infantino over to Marvel, offering him an (at the time) astonishing $22,000. In response, DC promoted him to Art Director. He would later work for Marvel, however, his long run on Star Wars being especially notable. He also organised the crossover that saw Superman and Spider-Man share a comic for the very first time.
