In tribute to the life and career of master artist Mike
Wieringo , Word Balloon presents this 2005 interview.
Mike was the first comic creator to approach me about Word
Balloon, rather than my attempting to contact them. He wanted to
hear my interview with his friend Jeff Parker , but was having
trouble downloading it. This afforded me the chance to get him
to do this early WB chat.
Ringo gives us an overview of his career from start to
his then current work with Peter David on Friendly Neighborhood
Spider-Man. We also talk about his Fantastic Four run with Mark
Waid , Tellos, the series he co-created with Todd Dezago, and his
DC work on Adventures Of Superman.
Wieringo passed away this weekend, at the young age of
44. Way too soon for this incredible talent and all around good
Thanks for all the entertainment Mike , and rest in
