History of Carmine Infantino in Comic Book Art

Carmine Infantino began his career penciling and inking for Timely Comics, the predecessor to Marvel Comics. He would draw characters like The Human Torch and Angel in the 1940s.

He also freelanced for other publishers like Fawcett Comics and Holyoke Publishing, before eventually taking a full-time position with DC Comics. Infantino's first published work for DC was The Black Canary, but he quickly became heavily associated as the penciller for The Flash.

He also pencilled the Golden Age Green Lantern, as well as on the series Justice Society of America. When the popularity of superhero comics began to decline in the 1950s, Infantino drew titles in other genres for DC such as Westerns, mystery and science-fiction comics. 

In 1956, DC editor Julius Shwartz tasked Infantino, Joe Kubert and others, to try and repopularize the superhero genre. Infantino started with a costume redesign of The Flash, creating the red and yellow uniform and his new look brought the character much success and public interest.

Infantino also drew The Flash #123 which was a monumental issue not just for the series but for DC Comics itself, as the storyline in issue #123 introduced Earth-Two and the general concept of DC's multiverse.

Infantino and writer John Broome were also instrumental in reviving the Batman series by removing some of the sillier aspect of the Golden Age titles, and moving towards more detective-themed stories and giving the character's a sleeker design.

In 1967, Infantino was promoted to editorial director of DC Comics and used this position to hire new talent for the publisher, bringing aboard young artists and writers like Neal Adams, Denny O'Neil, Dick Giordano, Joe Orlando and Mike Sekowsky. The new team was responsible for revamping old characters like Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Superman.

In the 1980s Infantino returned to drawing for both Marvel's and for Warren Publishing on titles like Star Wars, Spider-Woman and Nova. While he was drawing for Star Wars it was one of the top selling titles in the industry.

Infantino has won numerous awards over his career such as 12 Alley Awards, a National Cartoonists Society Award for Best Comic Book and an Inkpot Award.
