Well, crap. Dave Cockrum, famous artist of the X-Men, Legion of Superheroes and more, died today, from complications of diabetes. He was only 63.
As something of a tribute, here’s one of my favorite of his creations — Nightcrawler, from his swashbuckling mini-series from the 80s:

Damn it. I have and loved that mini-series.
Agreed, much sucking on this one. Nightcrawler lived under his pen better than any other.
Awwww, man! I was just looking through one of my Futurian’s graphic novels this pas weekend too!
RIP, Dave. RIP.
Man, I knew he was ill, but it’s damned shame to hear that he’s left us.
He died way too young :-(
God, I loved ‘Mean’. :)
Shame about his passing – although I’m loving the tribute posts with all the great art.
