SEMI-REGULAR MUSINGS FROM THE SEMI-REGULAR MIND OF WRITER J.M. DeMATTEIS
Wednesday, September 26, 2018
I just heard that Norm Breyfogle, one of the definitive Batman artists of all time, has passed away. I had the pleasure of working with Norm on The Spectre and he was a wonderful collaborator: his drawing was powerful, his storytelling impeccable and he really thought about the stories. Norm would call me up just to ask questions and discuss the philosophy underlying my scripts. He had a questing mind that dug deep—and that depth was reflected in his dynamic artwork. A terrible loss and, at only 58, way too young. My heartfelt condolences to Norm's family and friends.
