Mike Wieringo tragically passed away last year at the age of 44.
Hero Initiative and Marvel Comics tastefully and lovingly present the final story he worked on, bringing a host of Mike’s closest friends to finish the issue.
The story itself (the ‘new’ Fantastic Four of Wolverine, Hulk, Ghost Rider and Spider-Man) is fairly forgettable as are most ‘What If?’ tales, but the love and caring from his colleagues are palpable, making for a very special issue.
From Marvel (preview): “Before artist Mike Wieringo passed away, he had completed seven pages of a What If? story featuring the ‘replacement’ Fantastic Four: Spider-Man, the Hulk, Ghost Rider and Wolverine! Marvel Comics generously donated the script and Mike’s art to The Hero Initiative. Mike’s talented friends and fans stepped up to finish the story, and pay tribute to Mike in this great tale!
“This awesome 48-page book contains the full story, and additional written tributes to Mike, and includes artists Arthur Adams, Paul Renaud, Stuart Immonen, Cully Hamner, Alan Davis, David Williams, Sanford Greene, Humberto Ramos, Skottie Young, Mike Allred, and Barry Kitson.” On sale June 25, 2008.
