About Carmine Infantino
Carmine Michael Infantino (May 24, 1925 – April 4, 2013) was an American comic book artist and editor who was a major force in the Silver Age of Comic Books. He was inducted into comics' Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 2000.
Carmine Infantino was born via midwife in his family's apartment in Brooklyn, New York City. His father, Pasquale "Patrick" Infantino, born in New York City, was originally a musician who played saxophone, clarinet, and violin, and had a band with composer Harry Warren, but in the poverty of the Great Depression he turned instead to a career as a licensed plumber. Carmine Infantino's mother, Angela Rosa DellaBadia, emigrated from Calitri, a hill town northeast of Naples, Italy.
