While I was not the man’s biggest fan I do want to express my condolences to the family, friends and fans of Michael Turner. Sadly Turner lost his long battle with cancer and as someone who has dealt with a family member living and ultimately dying of the disease my heart breaks at the the thought of those who were close to Turner.
His connection to Superman wasn’t the strongest but I did enjoy his art of the The Supergirl from Krypton arc that ran through the pages of Superman/Batman #s 7-12 and the variant cover to Superman (vol. 2) #205, which I have posted above.
His style may not always have been my cup of tea, but Turner was a dynamic artist. At 37 he left way too soon and I have no doubt that he will be both missed and remembered.
Rest in peace, Michael. May you live on forever through your art.
