I was a huge fan of the artwork of Mike Parobeck. I first noticed his work on comics related to Batman: The Animated Series. He was able to combine the Bruce Timm designs with his own style sense for some of my most fondly remembered Batman tales. I also followed his work on titles like El Diablo and The Fly, but my favorite art from him was on the great Justice Society series that brought those classic characters out of limbo. Sadly, that series last only ten issues. Sadder still, Parobeck himself passed away not long after. He was an amazing talent that was taken far too soon.
