Dick Giordano Dies

I've just learned, at the Comic Book Resources web-site, that veteran comics artist and editor Dick Giordano died today at the age of 77.  Giordano was best known as the inker who embellished the pencils of Neal Adams on many of the classic Batman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow stories that helped to redefine those characters in the early 1970's, and George Perez on the early issues of Crisis On Infinite Earths.  He was also the co-creator, with writer Len Wein, of the Human Target, and served as Executive Editor of DC Comics throughout the 1980's.  Earlier, at Charlton Comics, he was the editor who spearheaded their "Action Heroes" line, which included revivals of Captain Atom and the Blue Beetle.
