Hi everyone. I'm certain that some of you are wondering who Dave Cockrum is. For all us comicbook geeks its a significant loss. For the non-comicbook geeks Cockrum co-created several popular characters, most notibly the X-Men Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler. I was lucky enough to have met him a few years ago and he was a terrific friendly guy. He was a spectacular artist and will be missed. For more info you can read an article here.
