A great U.K comic artist passed away at the weekend Mike White.
A solid professional who worked on loads of British titles downthetubes.net and Mike Perkins and Lew Stringer have all written wonderful tributes to Mike, i grew up looking at his comic strips , i always admired his draftmanship, his style .

Mike had the knack to draw anything and draw it well be it trucks, horses, football players, army commandos he could do it all.

in the 90's we both had the same Agent at Temple Rogers Agency the wonderful Pat Kelleher and i used to phone Mike and chat about Sonic the comic and other work Mike one time illustrated The Bible and he painted wonderful images for it.

 Mike drew and coloured the wonderful Golden Axe for Sonic the comic while i drew Shinobi master ninja , he was always relaxed and plesent to talk too, he just saw his job as a way to pay the bills and never took himself seriously he was a humble guy well to me anyway , he has left wonderful work which i'm sure will be always remembered be it via Sonic the comic , Roy of the Rovers, 2000ad, Action, Commando so many titles the list goes on and on he entertained thousands and thousands of kids ,several generations i for one won't forget him
all the best Mike and thanks for all the entertainment.

a great cover by Mike White for Sonic the Comic Sega /Fleetway editions
