I was saddened by this; he was a great artist. I had the cover of Dead Ringer (with the "Meat Loaf" name removed and my handle added) as my Twitter avatar for a long time. I've still got a promo 3D Frankenstein trading card of his around somewhere too. Just love that Jim has the same love of comicbook fantasy that I do and gave publicity to great artists that that.
