We Mourn the Tragic Loss of Creator Mike Wieringo

Mike Wieringo

I was shocked to discover today that Mike "Ringo" Wieringo
died Sunday August 12th of a massive heart attack. He was a vegatarian, fit and healthy by all accounts- its incredibly shocking.

Moreover, Mike was a friendly guy and an extremely talented artist. He was an inspiration because of his style and excellent skills. He drew circles around most of us and he did it with good-natured humility.

Tom went on to say "I wanted to wait to post the news until Dan received his surprise copy in the mail this afternoon, but they look unbelievable."

Nocturnals.com received a digital photo of the cover of one of these advance copies today.
