Artist Michael Turner Dead

The global comics community is still small enough that writers and artists who I’ve never met, somehow seem like old friends. I grew up reading artist Mike Wieringo’s fun and energetic pencils on Flash and Spider-Man and when he died last year, I was quite emotional. I felt the same way upon discovering Michael Turner’s death. His pencils on the new Supergirl’s introduction in the pages of Superman/Batman re-energized me about the DC Comics Universe. His covers have been seen everywhere over the last few years from Identity Crists to Marvel’s powerhouse Civil War. You noticed his work on the stands, and with his own studio, Aspen Comics and properties like Fathom, his creative output for a man suffering from cancer since 2000 is extraordinary and a testament to his dedication.

Condolences be sent to:

  1. broke my heart to hear of this… i\d met turner 2 years ago at wondercon. amazing artist with such an optimistic persona. he was truly a fighter and will never be forgotten.

  2. I am totally sadden to hear the news of the passing of Michael Turner this pass weekend. Not only was he an important member of the comic /artist community, but Mr. Turner was indeed a real nice guy. I was fortunate to meet Mr. Turner at last year at the Hobby Star Comic Con in Toronto, ON, Canada and he was a class act. My deepest condolences to his family and his team at Aspen. Our sky has indeed darken today at the lost of another star.

    Sincerely,
    Steve from Toronto
