Early this morning, Vince Hernandez of Aspen Comics posted a deeply sad message about the passing of Michael Turner.
I was only lucky enough to spend a few hours in person with Mike. But he dazzled me with his great intelligence, curiosity, and enthusiasm; by the absolute joy he took in the creative process; and by the easy, beautiful warmth and openness he radiated.
My deepest condolences to his family and his many, many, many friends.
