Born in 1960, Breyfogle began taking art lessons as a preteen and studied painting and illustration in college. His early work includes back-up stories in First Comics’ American Flagg and Eclipse’s Tales of Terror, and his first monthly was Whisper for First Comics.DC Goes Digital First").
In 1993, Breyfogle joined Gerard Jones and Len Strazewski in creating Prime, a 13-year-old boy with the ability to transform into a superpowered adult, for Malibu Comics. He drew the first 12 issues of the series. During his career, Breyfogle would also work on individual issues or short runs of Catwoman, The Flash, Spectre, Superman, and Wonder Woman, as well as The Avengers, Black Panther, and Hellcat.
Breyfogle suffered a stroke in late 2014 and turned to crowdfunding to pay the resulting medical bills (see "Norm Breyfogle Suffers Stroke"). DC subsequently released a hardcover collection of the artist’s work, Legends of the Dark Knight: Norm Breyfogle Vol. 1 (see “Norm Breyfogle Improving”). A second volume is due in late November.
Details on services are pending.
Several comics professionals took to Twitter to remember Breyfogle’s contributions to comics.
