R.I.P. Mike Wieringo

I just now learned that comics artist Mike Wieringo died yesterday from a heart attack, aged 44.

I didn't know much about him -- most of his work for DC was before I got into comics. In fact, my only connection to the man was that I was subscribed to his DeviantART gallery. But I know he was a damn fine artist and, more importantly, a really decent person in an industry filled with schmucks. Comics need more guys like him.

Damn. I'll miss him.

So long, Ringo.
