Farewell to Dick Girodano

Dick Giordano died this past Saturday at the age of 77. Although Giordano's direct impact on the published adventures of Booster Gold is comparatively small, his indirect influence on the character's legacy, and the comic book industry in general, is immeasurable. For whatever else he has done, and did more than any brief tribute could hope to mention during his nearly 50 years in the business, Giordano deserves credit for bringing Blue Beetle into the DC pantheon, paving the way for the enduring antics of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Thank you, Mr. Giordano. [You can find the reminiscences of several artists, including Dan Jurgens, on Dick Giordano at Newsarama.com.]
