Mike Wieringo Passes Away @ age 44

Ms Marvel - Issue 9 - cover by Wieringo

Newsarama reports that artist Mike Wieringo passed away Sunday, of an apparent heart attack. This is quite a loss for the comics community. He was only 44 years old. My condolences to his friends and family. His homepage is currently down due to exceeding bandwidth, but here are some other links.

Indeed a great lost.
And he was really young.

I remeber taht I din not really like his style with the first comics of some fast kid that I laid hands on...the last decada
May he rest in peace
