RIP Dave Cockrum

Clifford Meth reported it; Mark Evanier confirmed it. Former Legion of Super-Heroes and X-Men artist Dave Cockrum has passed away. Since I just read his seminal run on the latter title this weekend (via the Uncanny X-Men Omnibus), I’m especially disheartened. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Update: The Comics Reporter has an excellent writeup of Cockrum’s career.

    Sad, sad news.

    The image at the following link–

    –isn’t a great reproduction, but it is probably my favorite group shot of the X-Men ever. I seem to recall Marvel using it in advertising for several years during the early 1980s.

    RIP, Dave.
