Dick GiordanoDick Giordano has died and today is a sad day for everyone in the comic book industry.

In these days where just about every press release touts everyone as an industry great, Dick Giordano was truly a comic book legend. While primarily known as one of the great all-time inkers (often pairing with Neal Adams, another legend), Giordano also spent 10 years as DC Comics’s Vice President/Executive Editor, a position he held from 1983-1993, arguably the most critical time frame in DC Comics history. He oversaw Crisis on Infinite Earths and the rebooting of the entire universe and its iconic characters, one of the more ambitious moves ever taken by a major comic book company. He was also there when DC launched their Vertigo line of mature readers comics, possibly the most influential move DC Comics has made in the modern age.

His loss is being felt throughout the industry, but most especially at DC Comics. “When I was just trying to break into comics back in 1986, I received a lot of form rejection letters, including a very gracious one from Dick at DC Comics. On the DC letterhead, he took the time to pen an additional personal note which I still cherish today. “Looking good–keep working at it.” Those few words kept this often dejected young artist hanging in there as it took many many more submissions before I finally broke into comics,” said Jim Lee, Co-Publisher, DC Comics  “Thank you, Dick, for your words of encouragement, all the years of amazing art and editorial leadership at DC. And finally, for showing us artists how a great inker gets it done.”
