Rest In Peace Lew Sayre Schwartz

It is with a sad heart that we have to report that golden age Batman artist, Lew Sayre Schwartz, passed away on June 20th at the age of 84 years old.

Schwartz illustrated many of the caped crusader's adventures from 1948 - 1952, including the first appearances of the Killer Moth: Batman 63, 64 and Detective Comics 173.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. You can read more about Schwartz's contributions to comics here and here.
