The passing of Mike Wieringo

I had the pleasure of meeting Mike Wieringo at Heroes con in June for the first time. Although, I've been a fan of Mike's work for years we've communicated through different art forums and through emails. He's been a mega-influence to me, and to alot of people, so this news of his passing was a shock to me.

Our prayers go out to you and yours, Mike.


God Bless.

Your friend,

This past "HEROES CON", while playing ping-pong with Mike was the most time I've ever spent with him. I think we probably played 30-45 minutes...

...he had a way of making you feel like you knew him forever.

In the past, Mike and I had chatted at shows, HEROES and MEGACON, for 10-15 minutes and then just run into each other as the show moved on.

I regret not taking the time to really talk with him now.

It really sucks.

I'm still in disbelief about the whole thing...it's yet to sink in.

He will be missed by many...as it's already been seen...
