    RIP Len Wein


    Len Wein (June 12, 1948 – September 10, 2017) was an American comic book writer and editor best known for co-creating DC Comics' Swamp Thing and Marvel Comics' Wolverine, and for helping revive the Marvel superhero team the X-Men (including the co-creation of Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus). Additionally, he was the editor for writer Alan Moore and illustrator Dave Gibbons' influential DC miniseries Watchmen.

    Wein was born on June 12, 1948 in New York City and was raised in a Jewish household.

    In a 2003 interview, Len Wein recalled that he "was a very sickly kid. While I was in the hospital at age seven, my dad brought me a stack of comic books to keep me occupied. And I was hooked. When my eighth grade art teacher, Mr. Smedley, told me he thought I had actual art talent, I decided to devote all my efforts in that direction in the hope that I might someday get into the comics biz."

    Wein was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2008.

    R.I.P.

    So often, the passing of great talents is relatively overlooked, but he will always be remembered by comic fans and his work will live on.
