    Rip, I remember his Batman run fondly from the 90's.
    He never really recovered from that stroke.

    This is awful news. Maybe it's the sitting at a drawing board all day lifestyle, but comic artists die young.

    Breyfogle is one of the greatest Batman artists of all-time and a true original. When the entire industry was going one direction, he said F that and did things his own way. This is a huge loss for comics fandom.

    Condolences to his family and friends.

    Al Milgrom knew what was up. One of the best editors Marvel ever had. Archie Goodwin-level.

    I may be wrong but I think McFarlane did that first. That said losing Breyfogle is a huge blow, I’ll always remember him and Jim Aparo as my favorite Batman artists growing up.

    One of my favorite Batman artists ever. In the top three, at least.

    He's probably my #4, but that's still an insanely high number for a character that's been around 80 years. There have literally been hundreds of artists.
