Michael Turner RIP

This is really sad news. I remember seeing Michael a couple of years ago at Chicago and really pulling for him. You could tell he was sick, he was so gaunt, but he still was drawing as well as ever and was out there interacting with the fans, so I was holding out hope that he was going to be on the upswing from there. Sadly that wasn't the case. He'll be missed.

The news as reported by Aspen Comics:
