Comics legend Julie Schwartz passed away this morning at 2:30 am at Winthrop Hospital in New York from complications related to his recent battle with pneumonia. He was 89 years old.

The architect of much of the Silver Age of comics, this year, Schwartz would have celbrated 60 years of working with DC Comics. He was an inspiration to at least two generations of comics creators, and his influences and contributions to the medium will be felt for decades and decades to come. Despite his age, Schrawtz had a very active presence at comic book conventions up to and including last year, prior to the decline in his health.

Schwartz�s longtime friend Mark Evanier has written an obituary that can be found here.

The funeral for Julie is scheduled for tomorrow morning, February 9th.
