Michael Turner tribute book hits stores next week

Newsarama has posted an interview with Aspen’s Vince Hernandez about the 80 page Michael Turner tribute book that hits stores next Wednesday. Here’s an excerpt:

NRAMA: Who are some of the creators that contributed to the book?
VH: There’s an incredible cover by Alex Ross. And of course we have all of our Aspen artists, like Micah Gunnell, Marcus To, Francisco Herrera, Ale Garza, and Sana Takeda. And we also have writers who’ve worked with Aspen, like Geoff Johns and Jeph Loeb. There’s Joe Benitez, who worked with Mike at Top Cow and will be finishing the volume of Soulfire for Mike. There are some new guys in here we’ve never really worked with, like Marc Andreyko and Brad Meltzer, who we’ve worked with, but never on an Aspen story. Greg Pak had a touching story about an experience he had with Mike at a con. And all the big name artists that you can think of, like J. Scott Campbell, Joe Mad [Madureira], Humberto Ramos. And there’s a piece by Joe Quesada and a tribute by Dan DiDio. We also have Jim Lee in there. Anybody you can think of. Gary Frank is in there, and Marc Silvestri did a piece. Even people who are newcomers wanted to participate.
NRAMA: And all the money you make from this goes toward charity, right?
VH: Yep. All the proceeds from this go to the American Cancer Society and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Those are Mike’s two favorite charities, so we definitely wanted to honor that and make sure proceeds from the book would benefit that. So all the creators and fans are doing something in his name that helps these causes.
