::Del Genesis al Apocalipsis::

Lamentablemente el primer post de este weblog inicia con la noticia de la muerte de Julius "Julie" Schwartz (editor, casi por 60 años de DC)... digo, no es novedad para muchos que su fin estaba cerca, pero eso solo nos deja a Will Eisner, Joe Simon y Stan Lee como las ùltimas leyendas vivas del comic, el siguiente texto fue tomado de NEWSARAMA:

Comics legend Julie Schwartz passed away Sunday morning at 2:30 am at Winthrop Hospital in New York from complications related to his recent battle with pneumonia. He was 88 years old.

The architect of much of the Silver Age of comics (it was Schwartz who re-introduced such characters as the Silver Age Flash, Green Lantern, and Atom), this year, Schwartz would have celebrated 60 years of working with DC Comics. He was an inspiration to at least two generations of comics creators, and his influences and contributions to the medium will be felt for decades and decades to come. Despite his age, Schwartz had a very active presence at comic book conventions up to and including last year, prior to the decline in his health.

Schwartz’s longtime friend Mark Evanier has written an obituary.

The funeral for Julie is scheduled for Monday morning, February 9th.
