Comics fans, and Batman fans, in particular, mourn the passing of Norm Breyfogle. Only 58 years old, the cause of death has remained private, although recent crowdsourcing for funding reveals that Breyfogle recently suffered a stroke.
Although Breyfogle is hardly a household name, you’d be hard pressed to find many artists who have had a more lasting impact on the Dark Knight than Norm had. He dominantly drew Batman comics from 1987 to 1995, working on a number of Bat-books, including Detective Comics, Batman, and Batman: Shadow of the Bat. During his tenure, Breyfogle co-created several prominent members of the Rogue’s Gallery, including the Ventriloquist and Scarface, Victor Zsasz, Amygdala, Anarky, Ratchcatcher, and Jeremiah Arkham.
In addition to his wide-spread Bat-work, Breyfogle also co-created Prime, the flagship character/title at the launch of Malibu Comics. Rest in Power, Norm, and thank you for all the beautiful art.
