Jens H Altmann Passes

I’ve known Jens H Altmann for around a decade. Comic book creator, novelist, translator and general commentator trying for his big break, he helped me out with stories, was a voice of sanity on the Bleeding Cool forums and, well, was a friend. Living in Germany, he was able to conduct a couple of X-Men movie interviews for Bleeding Cool.

We understand that Jens took his own life a few days ago. If there was anything wrong I, and others, never saw the signs.

Our condolences to his wife, family and friends.
