Norm Breyfogle had died at the tragically young age of 58.     If you grew up reading comics in the 1980’s, then Norm Breyfogle  was Batman. His art style perfectly captured the mystery and suspense of the Dark Knight, whilst giving life to his flowing cape and to Gotham City itself.  His now legendary run on the character spanned 6 years across Detective Comics , Batman and Batman: Shadow Of The Bat as well as numerous one shots. Breyfogle, along with long time Batman collaborator Alan Grant, oversaw many key landmarks in the history of the Batman mythos. New characters like the Ventriloquist , the  Ratcatcher , Jeremiah Arkham and Mr Zsasz  were introduced which added to the Caped Crusaders rich history.
