Carmine Infantino was an American comic book artist and editor who played a major force in the Silver Age of Comic Books. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2000 and cited in Comics Buyer's Guide Millennium Poll as the greatest penciller of all time.

After the death of Wilson McCoy, the artist of The Phantom comic strip, Carmine Infantino helped finish one of his last stories with the sunday strip The Limper. It is believed that Infantino only drew one Sunday page while the remainder of the story was continued by Bill Lignante.

Carmine Infantino was a strong candidate for taking over the Phantom Sunday strip after McCoy's death; however the job was ultimately given to Sy Barry.
