I met him a couple times, but he was one of the few creators that actually made me starstruck. I usually just walked past his table several times a con to get a glance at him.
He was on my list of CUTE COMIC CREATORS (4 if I'm not mistaken) but he was more than that...he was a fighter and gave a lot of writers and artists an opportunity/alternative to "the big 2" with ASPEN COMICS.
While you either loved or hated his art, the bottom line he was a stand-up bloke.
He will be missed.

Michael Turner-Turner is almost too good and too cute to be true. He began his professional career as a background artist at Top Cow but made a name for himself with the co-creation of Witchblade in 1995. Turner has since developed and has sole creation rights to the immensely popular Fathom and most recently Soulfire. It is his recent DC covers (more accurately a particular Batman/Superman cover that featured Supergirl) that have sent fan-boy's hearts aflutter. Fan-girls, on the other hand, can get a thrill of their own by catching this gorgeous man's pearly whites and baby blue eyes at their nearest convention. Now at DC and cover artist for the critically acclaimed Identity Crisis, this is one creator that draws people that are "almost" as breath-taking as he is.
