Some of the Artwork I Love

He passed away on June 27, 2008 due to complications with cancer. 37 years old. He is a favorite artist of mine. Despite the critics, I've always loved his work. I just found out. I had no idea and was shocked. I can't believe it. I really wanted to be a comic book artist and work with him someday. 

The same image, I have signed by him. I was having a geek out moment!

This was one of those infamous crossover comics. Witchblade, Tomb Raider, and Fathom. 

Turner was known for doing covers and variant covers. I always liked his variation.

The picture below is actually funny to me. The character, The Darkness has this fatal flaw. He does achieve powers of darkness at the age of 21  but in exchange will die if he produces offspring. So the women surrounding him is just a fantasy. One of my favorite comic books. The original run of it up to number 30 were great.

These copies of signed artwork are nice. I'm thinking of getting a copy of one someday.

Absolutely my favorite image. Wish it was bigger so you could see the sky and water better.

Yeah, and all this time I thought he was in remission. It was a shocker. I had gotten to love other comic artists too and followed other up and coming artists' works that I lost track of him...then BAM! I just found out. It's weird that I didn't really hear about it until now. : (

dood, he wasnt a favorite but i did admire his work and its funny that you bring this up, because i just found out about his passing like 3 weeks ago. i was like, "what the ****?! when did he die?"<br />

I've always been into comics so over the years i've come to know artist through their beautiful work. Sometimes becoming attached to their style and following their work. It sounds weird, but it was a drag to find this **** out yo! i knew for years he had been fighting and lost part of his hip.
