Dick Giordano, R.I.P.

Legendary comic book creator Dick Giordano passed Saturday morning at the age of 77.

Giordano, whose career began in 1951 and spans work for DC, Marvel, Dell, Valiant and other publishers is perhaps best known as his work as Editor-in-Chief for Charlton Comics, overseeing the creation of the now enduring DC Comics-owned characters such as Blue Beetle and Captain Atom, as well as his time as Executive Editorial Director of DC Comics, during which time DC published such landmark works as Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's Watchmen and Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns.

Other career highlights include serving as inker to penciler Neal Adams and George Perez on DC's Crisis On Infinite Earths.
