Life totally sucks sometimes department
Sad, sad and shocking news to learn comics artist Mike Wieringo died suddenly of a heart attack yesterday at only 44 years old. "Ringo" was one of my favorite current comics artists, a prolific blogger and by all accounts one of the nicest guys in the biz. His runs on "Fantastic Four," "The Flash," "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man" and most recently the great little "Spider-Man/Fantastic Four" series with Jeff Parker were old-school comics fun at their best - I loved his rubbery, expressive and clean style, which could manage dark when it was called for but was best at creating a sense of wonder and adventure. What a terrible piece of news to wake up to and my condolences to his family. RIP.
