DC & Marvel Comics artist Mike Wieringo passed away Sunday, August 12, 2007, the victim of a sudden heart attack. He was 44 years old.
If you were fortunate enough to have met Mike at any of the many comics conventions that he regularly attended, then you already know that he was a very generous man and you would be hard pressed to find a nicer guy working in the field.
After an acclaimed run on The Flash at DC Comics in the early 1990's, Mike produced his creator-owned fantasy collaboration Tellos (with Todd DeZago). Mike Wieringo's outstanding pencils were featured in titles such as Robin, The Adventures of Superman, Sensational Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and most recently on Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
My thoughts & prayers go out to his family, friends and those industry pros with whom he often worked. He will be missed!
