Mark Evanier is reporting that Julius Schwartz passed away today. I met the man at a few conventions in passing, and at one bought of copy of his autobiography from him. I tried to interview him for the radio show once but he had a sore throat and told me to “try him again later”. Later never came, sadly. He was a great guy, responsible for work that boosted the imaginations of generations of comic book readers. He will definitely be missed.
