Wieringo Wednesday: The Mighty Marvels!
As I've said here plenty of times in the past, Mike Wieringo was probably my favorite comics artist of the past 10 to 20 years, and easily one of my all-time favorites, too. Ever since the second anniversary of his passing last week, he's been on my mind a lot, and I figured it was time to finally start this, a feature I've considered for a while now. It's not much - and since I've always felt I lack the vocabulary to express my feelings about art, I'll let the art mostly speak for itself - but it's my tribute to an artist whose work brought me a lot of enjoyment, so I hope it's appreciated on some level. And while it's tragic that we'll never see any more new work from 'Ringo, there's plenty of material out there for us to continue to enjoy for years to come.
A couple of single character pieces to start... my all-time favorite super-hero, and a hero whom I enjoy conceptually even if I don't regularly read her book.
