Len Wein. Writer/creator of Wolverine, Swamp Thing, editor of Claremont/Cockrum/Byrne revival of Uncanny X-Men, editor of Watchmen… it's a long list. A sad loss.

That is a shame.  One of the earliest American comics I can remember making an impact on me was his surprisingly vicious Werewolf By Night mini in Marvel Comics Presents.

What a roll call of excellence! Swamp Thing with Bernie Wrightson and Co creator of Wolverine, D.C and Marvel should pay for his funeral. Damn fine talent.

Wein and Wrightson will forever be immortalised within the industry for creating Swamp Thing, undoubtedly one of the corner stone characters of the entire medium.

RIP

Sad to hear about Len Wein passing away. One of those creators who was a constant throughout my youth. Fond memories of the first appearance of Wolverine in the pages of Mighty World of Marvel.

Just read about the passing of Len Wein. Very sad news, a man whose characters have had such a massive influence on mainstream comics that few can match.

Grant Hart drummer with Husker Du. Damn, 'It makes no sense at all.'

Disappointed in the beeb's reporting there, an entire article about Hüsker Dü and not one umlaut.

Very sad. I did have hopes of a reunion since they were getting along enough to get some early material remastered and reissued.

Gutted.  Grant Hart was a formative influence on my life.  RIP South Saint Paul's finest son.  Z

His solo stuff is worth listening to as well. Run Run Run to the Centre Pompidou is absurdly catchy.

Aye. His first solo album, Intolerance, is a gem and completely not what you'd expect from a member of Husker Du.

This would have been sad at any time but it seems a little bit more touching simply because I've been really enjoying listening to this new Savage Young Du compilation all week.
