Today in Comics History, May 17: Happy birthday, George Kashdan!

Born on this day in 1928: comics/animation writer/editor George Kashdan (Action Comics, Adventure Comics, The Unexpected, G.I. Combat, Weird War Tales, Rip Hunter: Time Master, The Twilight Zone, Grimm's Ghost Stories, Flash Gordon, Star Trek comics, and The Mighty Hercules and The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure cartoons, among others): George Kashdan! He co-created Tommy Tomorrow!

from "The Man Who Lost His Spirit" in Ghosts #95 (DC, December 1980), script by George Kashdan, pencils and inks by Tor Infante, colors by Jerry Serpe

I'm not going to include the rather mean-spirited appearance of George in Inferior Five #6. (Read more about it on Tom Breevoort's blog if you'd like!)

Let's just leave with this panel from the story above.

Happy birthday, George!
