Michael Turner 1971-2008

Micheal Turner blasted onto the comics scene in the mid 90s. He was one of those artist whose work I admired but didn't love, if you know what I mean. Sometimes, all of his women looked the same (says the pot to the kettle). And often his work appeared over-rendered. But I couldn't deny his talent.

A few years ago, Micheal developed cancer in his hip, requiring three pounds of bone to be removed and extensive physical therapy. Naturally, he had to take some time off from work. That he came back at all is astounding

He spent the last few years running Aspen Entertainment, his own company, and drawing covers for Marvel and DC, becoming one of the most in demand artists in the industry.

Unfortunately, Micheal passed away this weekend after the cancer came back.
