The amazing Mike Wieringo passed away in 2007, but his artistic legacy lives on! I’ve written about how Wieringo’s death affected me, and how much I miss his individual take on comics, but I still think about him from time to time and think about how much poorer the industry is without him.
Check out this amazing sketch of X-Men from days gone by. I’ve included the above image because it contains a fresh take on Storm. I’ve never seen an artist cross her hands like this before to represent her controlling the weather. It is a bit reminiscent of Doctor Strange casting spells to me. I love his take on Colossus and Nightcrawler, but I think all of the characters benefit from his interpretation. I mean, who would have thought anyone could make Marrow look interesting? Here’s two more images from Wieringo, displaying his unique brand of adventure and whimsy.
