    Michael Turner (Comic Artist) dies

    On Friday June 27th at 10:42 Pacific Daylight Time at the Santa Monica Hospital in California, Turner died after a long battle with cancer
    the guy was an amazing artist who challenged his former company and won the rights to the dream project he created.

    in 2000 he was diagnosed with cancer (i still remember reading about it in a comics trade magazine) and he lost his entire hip when they removed it along with the cancer.

    seems he didnt win this battle.


    Michael Turner was known for filling his pages with beautiful, yet powerful women but more recently has been doing cover work for both Marvel and DC.

    While I have never been a big fan of his art, I had a tremendous amount of respect for him. He will be missed.
