Default Sheldon Moldoff has died

I haven't found it online yet, but a friend texted me that Sheldon Moldoff has passed away. He was in his early 90s, so he lived a very long life, but for fans of golden age comics, this is a real bummer. His influence is felt across comics, and most of today's fans don't even know it.

DC released a statement:

Remembering Sheldon Moldoff
Quote:
“When you think of the Golden Age of comics, you think of the work of Sheldon Moldoff. His early drawings of Green Lantern, Flash and most especially Hawkman set the tone for these bold new heroes. Throughout his career, Sheldon Moldoff made a lasting contribution to the comic book industry and what would later become the DC universe. We salute the career and legacy of one of the greats.” – Dan DiDio & Jim Lee, DC Entertainment Co-Publishers on the passing of Sheldon Moldoff

Yo.

from his wiki, at a glance:

Quote:
Sheldon "Shelly" Moldoff (April 14, 1920, New York City, New York - February 29, 2012) is an American comic book artist best known his early work on the DC Comics characters Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and as one of Bob Kane's primary "ghost artists" (uncredited collaborators) on the superhero Batman. He co-created the Batman supervillains Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, Matt Hagen (Clayface), and Bat-Mite, as well as the original heroes Batgirl and Ace the Bat Hound. Moldoff is also the sole creator of the Black Pirate (Jon Valor). Moldoff is not to be confused with fellow Golden Age comics professional Sheldon Mayer.
