ARNOLD DRAKE 1924-2007

Arnold Drake died today.

He was one of the greatest and most inventive creators of not only the Silver Age, but any age of comics, and he will certainly be missed.

Sadly, Drake's work went uncredited throughout most of his career, and it wasn't until creator's like Grant Morrison and Mark Waid started citing him as an influence that his talent and genius finally garnered the praise and recognition it deserved.

Not to turn this into diagram week, but as a small tribute to Drake's life and tremendous body of work, here's one of my favorite bits of his Doom Patrol...
