Michael Turner passes away

Michael Turner passed away last night, June 27th at approximately 10:42 pm in Santa Monica, Ca.

One of my first favorites artists back when I was only another fat fanboy, Michael Turner`s first kickass work was Witchblade (Top Cow), then Wildstorm calls to join to the first Cliffhanger wave (a subdivision with titles like Danger Girl, Crimson and Battle Chasers) but Marc Silvestri (founder of Top Cow) offers an exclusive contract to publish Turner`s own creation Fathom under Top Cow banner. Some years later, he start his own company (Aspen) and work with Marvel and DC as cover artist (with Peter Steigerwald as colorist).

Fathom was suspended because Michael has a serious health problem: cancer. The same cancer that eight years later finish with his life. He was 37.
