BOOM! Studios Remembers Minck Oosterveer

Michael Wirth 09/23/2011 Reviews

This past Saturday, the comics word suffered a great loss when Minck Oosterveer, Dutch artist on European titles such as Nicky Saxx and Storm, passed away at the age of 50 in a motorcycle accident. Today, BOOM! Studios released the following letter in a press release.

To all our friends in the press,

Art by Minck OosterveerThis Monday we were stunned by the news of the tragic passing of Minck Oosterveer. After the shock had worn off, we here at BOOM! Studios thought that the best way we could think of to celebrate his life is by exposing as many people as possible to his creative work.

So in honor of the memory of Minck Oosterveer, BOOM! Studios is offering all issues of Mark Waid and Oosterveer’s The Unknown and The Unknown: Devil Made Flesh for free through all our digital partners — comiXology, iVerse, Graphicly, and mydigitalcomics. Please feel free to spread the word. Long known overseas, Minck was just getting traction here in the States, making his untimely passing even more tragic.

Also, BOOM!’s Editor-in-Chief, Matt Gagnon, has written a stirring remembrance of Minck on our blog here: http://blog.boom-studios.com/2011/09/minck-oosterveer-an-eternal-master/

Thank you for helping us expose more people to this great artist.

Chip Mosher, Marketing and Sales Director – BOOM! Studios

Oosterveer also worked with Mark Waid on Ruse for Marvel Comics. Please help to keep Oosterveer’s memory alive by checking out his art. You can also visit his official website which has more information about his life and career.

He is survived by his wife and two children.
