Michael Turner - Memory

I remember well my jaw hitting the ground when Michael Turner arrived on the comic scene in titles like Witchblade and Velocity at the time. When I was in the city on the weekend I stumbled on a tribute book for him, I must have been under a rock to not know that he passed away from cancer mid 2008. But now that I do, I feel I should at least throw a small set of his awesome images into the blog here to remember and inspire. Just look at the style he brought to such clean visuals, stunning women and mighty heroes.
There are several Gallery sites out there with his work that should keep the drool coming, CommicArtCommunity , Comic Vine and Wizard Universe to name a few. For a quick bio - just shoot over to his Wikipedia entry.
