Mike Wieringo Passed Away
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.
The famous artist was known for his work on "The Flash", "Fantastic Four", "The Sensational Spider-Man", "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man" and the recently finished miniseries "Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four."
