In the nearly 15 months since we started this site, there has not been a sadder day.  Our dear friend Len Wein has died.

In the 55-year history of the X-Men, there is no more important name than Len Wein.  Without Len, there might not have been an X-MEN:TAS.  In 1975, he was entrusted with re-inventing a long-dormant, unsuccessful book.  Thinking ahead, he created a Canadian mutant named Wolverine for a Hulk comic on the hunch that Logan might fit in the new X-Men book.  Pretty good hunch.  He created an African mistress of the elements.  He created a haunted blue demon with an angel’s faith.

Len was a comics world superstar.  When I screwed up the courage to give him notes on his X-MEN:TAS scripts, set within a world he help build, he was always as gracious (and inventive) as he was professional.  In our weird business, Len was among the nicest people I ever met.  His long, thoughtful interview in our upcoming book was an amazing gift.

Julia and I will miss Len terribly.  Our hearts go out to his wife Christine.
