So sad to hear the news. I gave Matt at Trinity quite a few books for him to sign at SDCC this year. I was thinking of going to SDCC next year in part because I hoped to meet Len Wein in person.

RIP.

Man this year has taken so much from us. I got to meet him 2 years ago and was an awesome person and funny. So the Swamp Thing book mini series that came out later that year. I got my book signed and graded by him (CBCS) and will forevwr remember the awesome talks we had. May you R.I.P. Len Wein and thank you for leaving us some great characters😔😔😢😢😭😭

Man, 69 is truly still young. Barely into retirement age. Very sad. The link mentions surgeries...what was he ailing from? Rip Len.

@Drogio Len was in the hospital with repeated foot surgeries causing him to miss at least on scheduled show this year before he attended SDCC. I think he was the one that quipped about his healing factor being on the fritz on his Facebook page.

He was an industry standard - ahead of his time & an original talent. Our prayers & condolences go to his family and friends in their time of loss. RIP Mr. Wein, you'll forever be missed.

Sad. I donated some comics to him (through Mark Evanier) when his house burned. Prayers for the family.
