Carmine InfantinoCarmine Infantino is well known for drawing the very first book of the Silver Age, Showcase #4. The book contained the new, streamlined red and yellow Flash, a revamped design from the discontinued Hermes-style hero of the bygone Golden Age. The popularity of Infantino's Flash ushered in a new era, thereby saving superhero comic books from near-extinction and laying the groundwork for a renaissance at both DC and Atlas (which soon became Marvel). Infantino got his start in comics at the young age of 16, and after bouncing around several studios, began drawing "Airboy Comics" and Hillman. He then moved to DC, where he quickly rose through the ranks from artist, to art director, to editorial director to publisher and president. There he remained until 1975, after which he left for California to work at Hanna-Barbara and Marvel Animation.
