A Farewell To Comic Book Artist/Creator Michael Turner

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

I know this is old news and I had been meaning to post this, however, I've been away from the web for a while.

Comic book artist Michael Turner passed away on June 27th 2008 in a Santa Monica hospital due to complications from cancer. Turner is responsible for comics like Fathom and Witchblade as well as contributing his pencilwork to a number of other comics from the DC and Marvel realm. Turner started his career with Top Cow after being discovered by Marc Silvestri and eventually started his own publishing company Aspen MLT. I didn't consider myself a fan until I just recently began taking an interest in his pencil work after seeing pieces like the one posted above,(despite a lot of hatred by guys like this) so I was shocked to find out the news. He will be forever remembered as a legend in the field and his artwork will still be around to inspire me as an artist.
