In Memorium: Michael Turner

Comic book artist Michael Turner passed away on Friday, June 27, 2008 at the age of 37, after an extended battle with cancer. After being discovered by Marc Silvestri and recruited for Image Comics, Turner co-created the popular Witchblade character and also began work on his Fathom series (which he later carried over to his own company, Aspen MLT).

Turner made a name for himself in recent years with high profile cover work for both Dc Comics and Marvel Comics on such series as Superman/Batman, Identity Crisis, Justice League of America, Civil War, Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America and the upcoming X-Men #500.

Condolences go out to his family, friends, co-workers and fans.
