Comic book publisher pays tribute to the body of work that the artist produced for them, including cover scans and tributes from fellow creators

www.Marvel.com has released a tribute to the life and work of Mike Wieringo, who was taken from us this past weekend, which includes a gallery of covers by the artist, as well as peers remembrances of his life and work.

Ringo!

From the bouncy signature to the remarkable art that it brands, the world lost one of the greats this week, and what is truly a loss for all of us is that we lost him way too early.

On Sunday, August 12, Mike Wieringo passed away in his home in North Carolina, the victim of heart failure at the ridiculously young age of 44.

As one would expect, so much has been said about Mike over these last few days. Yes, he was an amazing guy, a fantastic artist and beloved by all who got to know him even in the most casual of fashions, but Mike was so much more than any of these limited descriptions can convey. All hyperbole aside, Mike's art…well, much like Mike, it simply made you smile.
