Hi everyone. I'm certain some of you are wondering who Dave Cockrum is. For us comicbook geeks its a significant loss. Cockrum was an artist who co-created several great characters, including the X-Men Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler. I had the honor of meeting him a few years ago and he was very friendly and a great creator to talk with. He will be missed. If you would like to read more about him here is a link to an article.
