Indeed sad. I was kind of hoping to see him get back on the Flash with Waid again. Would've been cool.

I just found out not five minutes ago, through Warren Ellis' Bad Signal mailer. Ruined my whole day.

I was really depressed when I saw the news this afternoon. His blog was one of the coolest comic sites on the net.

The comic industry has lost one of its most talented artists.

probably the best "modern artist" that was putting out material. why this guy wasnt doing a million covers instead of michael turner is beyond me. but anyway 'ringo was an awesome artist and this is just terrible to lose him at such a young age.

This was in the latest issue of Fantastic Five #5. I thought of this thread. Sorry for bringing up an old topic again, but I wanted to pay my respects as well. This is the best way I know how.
