R.I.P. Mike Wieringo…

I just got a terribly sad myspace message from Marc that I had to share here. Comics artist Mike Weiringo passed away as a result of a sudden heart attack on Sunday. He was only 44 years old. Mike had worked on pretty much all of the major superheroes, but he’s probably best known for his work on The Flash, Impulse, Spider-Man, and his own creation, Tellos. Back when I was a heavy comics reader in the mid-to-late 90’s, Mike was one of my favorite artists. His artwork had a clean, youthful exuberance that exploded off the page. He was one of the best and the light of the superhero world just got a bit dimmer today.
