because he made a deal with the devil to make certain people inexplicably worship the ground he walks on.

can't say i was a huge fan of his work, as i'm not so into the x-men as other, more red and blue characters, but some of his creations are my favorites - nightcrawler especially.

He was like Gil Kane or Jack Kirby -- even if you weren't a fan of his work per se, you had to admire the impact he had.

yeah, when I think vintage X-Men, I don't think Byrne. The image in my head is Cockrum's work.

He will be sorely missed.

Mike Wieringo has died

Postby anarky » Mon Aug 13, 2007 10:21 am

I am not kidding, though I wish I was.

I just read this over at Newsarama. He apparently suffered a massive heart attack at the relatively young age of 44.

Don't know if you actually saw the man in person, vyn, but I had a chance to meet him at several conventions before he hit it big. He earned the moniker "nicest guy in comics."

That's sad. And scary. When I was a kid 53 seemed ancient. But now it's right around the corner for me... I would hate to think I only have that much time left.

We'll miss you Dave. Thanks for everything.

I'd rather not even know. :( I don't wanna think I'm 2/3 of the way there, either.

Damn. I wouldn't call myself a fan of his but he was sure talented.

And was pretty darn good at drawing hot chicks.
