Well, hell, I'm sorry to hear that. He co-created Wolverine, and had quite an influence on the X-Men comics in other ways, too.

And Storm, Colossus, and Nightcrawler.

He helped create the visuals and background for many of the X-men that were the core of the team during the time the comic was most important to me.

Sorry to see him go. RIP.

Damn.

He made some really important changes in various titles, back when. (Like, obviously, Swamp Thing, but mostly X-Men.) And he was a pretty good writer.

(I had no idea he edited Watchmen.)
