Date of Birth
November 18, 1927
Hy Fleishman was born as Herman Fleishman in November 18, 1927, in New York City. He grew up in the Bensonhurst neighborhood of Brooklyn. He attended the Cartoonists and Illustrators School, co-founded by Burne Hogarth, after his service in the US Navy. My father explained that Hogarth was his instructor at the school and was famous at the time for his Tarzan comic strip in the Sunday Mirror. Hy Fleishman worked for numerous comic book publishers, illustrating stories and covers, colors and inks, during the Silver Age of comic books. My own remembrance of those years was waking up many mornings finding my father at his drawing table where he had been working all night to meet a deadline. His comment today was: "It was all a part of the work" he remembered nostalgically. In the late 1950's he was offered a job of illustrating a book a week for thirteen weeks for the IGA grocery stores. The name of the book was Poppo The Clown. But after the 13 week contract was up, IGA did not renew the contract since the book was not selling at their stores and it was discontinued. His old job was taken and he never returned full-time to comic book illustration. Hy Fleishman said that "I really enjoyed the work, but it was another lifetime ago." Hy Fleishman is retired and living in Connecticut. Roberta Fleishman June 1, 2008.
