Sad, sad news. From newsarama.com:

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.

I didn’t know Mike personally, but I was a big fan of his work and visited his blog often. He was an incredibly talented artist and, from what I understand, a really nice guy as well. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
