    Default RIP Len Wein

    Len Wein, one of the great comic legends has died.

    What were your favourite comics of his?

    Mine? It will always be his swap thing run. I feel it does not get the praise it deserves.

    Rest in Peace Len Wein, You were a good man.

    RIP Len Wein. He helped bring the X-Men back from reprint limbo, and helped create some of its most popular members (like Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and especially Wolverine).

    Sad news. He was really significant to modern comics (dude created Wolverine and the international X-Men!)

    Looking at a best of list, there's much of his work I haven't checked out.

    I did really like the three-parter introducing Mongul (DC Comics Presents #27-29.) He was also great on the Nerdist Writers Panel Comics Edition podcast.
    Sincerely,

    Of his more recent work, his reboot of the Metal Men for the "Legends of Tomorrow" anthology book was fantastic.

    God, Len Wein? We've lost another great .

    RIP Mr. Wein. Thank you for all the contributions you've made to comics and the medium over the years, and the variety of heroes, villains, and characters you've created in the course of your career.

    My condolences to his friends and family.

    Sad news indeed. Giant-Size X-Men #1 is unquestionably one of the most influential Marvel comics ever published, laying the groundwork for decades of amazing stories. RIP.

    Sad day. He created some of my absolute favorites with Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler.

    Ah, damn it. One of my favorite Hulk artists ever. And that legacy he leaves on the X-Men, in terms of designing a big chunk of the All-New, All-Different team...

    Condolences to his loved ones.

    Whenever I saw the name Len Wein in the credits of a comic book, whether as writer or editor, I always knew that I was in for a good story.

    How sad about Mr. Wein. As others here already mentioned, his creation of the all-new X-Men helped put Marvel's Merry Mutants back in the spotlight. My sympathies to his family.

    RIP, Mr. Wein.

    If comics has an afterlife, it must loaded with talent.

    Len was one of my favorite Bronze Age Batman writers. Wrote so many favorites of mine with other characters too.

    Such a comic book legend.
