    Default Mike Wieringo has died

    http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=125110

    The comics industry lost a luminary this weekend – Mike Wieringo passed away Sunday of a sudden heart attack. Details are still sketchy as of this time, but according to close sources, the acclaimed artist had chest pains at some point during the day and called 911, but the responders did not make it in time.

    Wieringo was 44 years old. He was a vegetarian, and “one of the healthiest ones of us in the bunch,” as his longtime friend and collaborator Todd Dezago described him.

    Wieringo worked every day, updating his blog and website with a constant stream of sketches at http://www.mikewieringo.com/. His last sketch was posted on Friday.

    Holy crap, that sucks big time. Reminds me a little too much of Mark Gruenwald.

    RIP Mike.

    I didn't realize he was only 44.

    Of the new breed of creators and artists in comics, I actually think his work was influential. Not to my taste, particularly, but oft imitated.


    RIP.
