Happy 87th Birthday to Carmine Infantino

Carmine Infantino was a key figure in the Silver Age of DC Comics, both as an artist and later serving as DC Comic's editorial director and publisher. Infantino died earlier this year, and I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate his birthday by showing the only time Infantino ever drew Booster Gold in a DC publication: 1986's Who's Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe Volume XXI.

Starting in 1959, Infantino drew many of Garnder Fox's Space Museum stories in Strange Adventures a quarter century before Booster Gold would steal the museum's treasures (and Skeets!) to start a career as a time-traveling crime fighter.

If you think about it, even though Infantino drew Booster Gold only once in his professional career as an illustrator, there wouldn't have been a Booster Gold without the work of Carmine Infantino. Thank you and Happy 87th Birthday, Mr. Infantino.

CBR Visits the Space Musuem's prolific Brian Cronin (probably best known for his illuminating and long-running Comic Book Legends Revealed series) published an article on the Space Museum yesterday. (Find it here.) It's completely worth a look if you're interested in the future history of the Booster Gold's origin.
