Michael Turner passes away
It's upsetting to hear that famed artist Michael Turner died yesterday. He had been struggling with cancer for several years, and had rebounded against it, creating his own characters and publishing comic books when he probably should have been in the hospital. His art was always very intricate, sexual and striking. The women that he drew weren't just the same old big breasts and ass that you see in most superhero books. He was actually able to draw beautiful women. If you want a good idea of who Michael Turner is, I recommend picking up his creator-owned series Fathom.
Comic Book Resources has an article up by writer and television producer Jeph Loeb, whose own son also died of cancer.
