X-Men Artist Dies Wearing Superman Pajamas. Will Be Cremated in Green Lantern Shirt

Wow, that a little sad. I've read a lot of Cockrum's material over the the years, he was a very top notch illustrator.

It doesn't suprise me at all he got no money from the x-men movies, Marvel is infamous for take ownership of artist created characters in their publications. Thats why the Big 7 formed Image comics in the 90's.
