Irwin Hasen's comics career started in the late 1930s, and he was actively drawing until a few years ago. Irwin drew the long running Dondi newspaper strip, the Justice Society of America, Wonder Woman, Wildcat, Flash, Green Lantern, and many other features. He was an incredibly lively, funny, observant man. Always the life of the party, a great Toastmaster, and a wonderful raconteur. He could do slapstick, and sarcastic humor with a broad smile or a hearty laugh. He was never afraid to speak his mind, and was very colorful when he did, but he could be tactful when necessary. He feared no authority, and he had more energy than a fuzzy bunny in a TV commercial. Irwin was entertainingly irrepressible, and was a very popular comic book convention guest for many years.

Irwin lived for 96 years. I knew him for fifteen. We shared lots of lunches and dinners and drinks over the years. Occasionally, we'd verbally spar for fun, or as Irwin once said, "We traded shots between drinks, or was it drinks between shots?" A couple of times, our sparring was a little combustible when the New York in Irwin was in full force, but it never got beyond the laughing stage. Heíd would get on me if I fell behind him in drinks, which always happened, because Iím really not a drinker. Heíd say, ďIím a short guy and youíre a big guy. Why canít you keep up with me?Ē I said, ďBecause I wasnít drinking with Adam and Eve like you were.Ē He laughed and called me a name I canít repeat here, but he was laughing hard when he said it.

Iíll miss that laugh, Irwin. Iíll miss your great stories. Iíll miss the banter. Iíll miss you.
