The first comic book I ever bought was a Breyfogle book. So this resonates with me more than almost any "celebrity" death ever.

Damn. Breyfogle and Adams were pretty much THE iconic Batman artists for me.

Was just reading the dude's past.

What a sad end. Got a heart attack at a rather early age (he could have had two more decades of drawing if he wanted to) but it paralyzed half his side. Sucks he had to suffer another one this time ending his life.

The only "nice" thing I read was that, when he originally had a hear attack, fans raised over 100,000 for his medical bills.

Always loved how he exaggerated Bat’s cape giving it a life of its own.

Cool observation, googling his drawings now I can absolutely see what you mean. Very cool.

Yeah, a lot of artists in the 90's had the "living cape" thing going on and Breyfogle started the trend.
