    Irwin Hasen, who created the comic strip Dondi and drew Green Lantern and Wonder Woman during the Golden Age, has passed at 96 from heart failure. I met this guy at NYCC many times, and he was always very nice to talk to. A gent.

    Very few of the old comics guys still left.

    RIP. The modern artists could really learn a thing or two from these guys quality wise.

    Never knew of him (not a big comic book guy) but in the picture you posted I instantly recognized the art style from classics I read as a kid. RIP. Long life spent doing what he loved!

    They don't make them like him anymore. A real legend in the comic art community. He will be missed.
