Today we lost one of the giants of our world. A man whose talent was only surpassed by his wonderful heart.
RIP Dick.

Well said, Ron. We lost a legend today. Farewell, Dick. RIP :( :cry:

I was lucky enough to meet him at last year's Mega Con. I also got a Sarge Steel pencil drawing from him that I'll appreciate even more now that he's passed.

He published my first fan letter in Teen Titans when I was a kid. He even answered fan mail personally!

A tremendous talent, a great human being.

^ Ditto. ^ I was lucky enough to have Dick ink a few of my covers during my active days in comics - needless to say they're real beauties. A real textbook for anyone to study on how to ink. Dick too, was kind enough to give me some of his valuable time, on the couple of occasions when I met him, to offer his thoughts / critique on my work --- I think I learned more in those sessions than almost any other time.

Dick was a top-flight pro, and I respected him more than anyone I ever met in comics, bar none.

Here it is. Rare that I get to play fanboy at a Con, but in hindsight I'm glad I did. Giordano's the old guy. No, no, the one on the right... :huh:

Awww man, that sucks. He was an inspiration to me ...and countless others. A legend has passed. May the afterlife be as good to you as you were to us. Rest easy.

If you go here (http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=95_93&products_id=508) there's a great read on his career. I own it, worth every penny.

This man ushered in my favorite time at DC comics when John Byrne was on Superman, Marv Wolfman brought back the Titans, and Frank Miller was on Batman. May he rest in peace.

Oh yeah, that was a golden age for me too. His inking work on Neal Adams' Batman and then his work in managerial at DC (working on bringing to the public the above mentioned titles) were the greatest times for me personally in reading/collecting comics.

Remembered by us...

Never, to be known by those after...

Never forget! Never forgotten!

An artist is never forgotten by his work!

At least, he has that...
