Infantino was the DC Publisher when I first started reading comics. His drawing style was chaotic and usually unattractive to me, and became moreso through the 1980's, but it always seemed like there was some abstractionist genius trying to escape from his panels. I'll always remember him as the happy cigar-chomping Lou Grant looking guy from the editorial pages.
"The trouble with being a ghost writer or artist is that you must remain anonymous without credit.
If one wants the credit, one has to cease being a ghost and become a leader or innovator." — Bob Kane
