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. Currently, there are no details about services or a funeral.
Remembering Mike Wieringo
Aku agak sedih..sebab aku suka style dia, follow blog dan sketches harian dia, dan takde kesempatan sgt utk beli komik dia (kecuali a few Friendly Neighborhood Spidey yg awal2 n gotham comics yg fantastic 4 kecik2 tu)..dan skang dah rasa bersalah pulak sbb aku donlod illegally antara komik akhir dia (spider-man and the fantastic 4)..always loved his spidey.
website dia pun terus down skang ni. maybe traffic teruk. tp cuba la..mana tau boleh masuk.
u will be missed, ‘ringo.
