Passing of a Great Artist

Yesterday the amazing artist Mike Wieringo passed away from a heart attack at age 44. I was shocked from the news, as Mike was so young and full of passion for his life and his work. I'd like to pass my condolences to his family and friends.

Over at Newsarama, Karl Kesel, Todd Dezago and Mark Waid talk about Mike. Waid and Dezago were the two writers he worked with for most of his career, on Tellos, Fantastic Four, Sensational Spider-man and the Flash. The Newsarama blog also has more words from friends and colleagues.

Mike always loved comics and spent almost every day talking to his fans through his blog and posting a daily sketch for them. You can see the collection of these sketches here. His last sketch was his own creation, Tellos, on Friday.
