Crying or Very sad Damn. RIP Crying or Very sad

Len Wein, the award-winning writer and editor, perhaps best known for co-creating Swamp Thing for DC Comics and Wolverine for Marvel Comics, along with editing Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen, passed away Sunday, according to multiple industry reports including word of the news from fellow comics veteran Paul Kupperberg. He was 69 years old.

Wein got his start in comics in 1968 working on DC’s Teen Titans #18. His first Marvel work came in Daredevil #71 in 1970. From there, he continued writing anthology stories for both publishers, along with guest-spots on such titles as Superman and The Flash.

Together with Bernie Wrightson, they created the supernatural superhero Swamp Thing in 1971’s The House of Secrets #92. Swamp Thing would go on to star in various ongoing and miniseries that continue to this day. Wein also contributed to the Man-Thing mythos over at Marvel by introducing the concept of “Whoever Knows Fear Burns at the Man-Thing’s Touch.”

He died far too young. I remember enjoying so many comics he wrote and edited, so many . . . . . .
And he created Wolverine, for crying out loud, one of the legendary, most-loved characters in all of comicdom's history. RIP good sir, and condolences to his family and friends. We mourn with you. Sad

He had heart surgery in 2015, so I'm guessing his death was heart related.
I'm the best there is at what I do. And what I do best is buy/sell comics.

When I was a kid I loved his run on JLA with Dick Dillin and Dick Giordano. They introduced me to the 7 Soldiers of Victory and the Freedom Fighters. Now they're all gone. Sad RIP

Another piece of my childhood who is now gone, but never forgotten. He'll live on as long as fans remember his creations.
