Rest in peace, Michael Turner.

This happened a week ago and if thaily hadn't mentioned it, I probably wouldn't have found out for another few weeks. Comic-book artist Michael Turner dies at 37.

Damn, damn, damn, Michael was my favorite artist. It was known that he had cancer, but he went into surgery a couple of years ago, so I thought they managed to get rid of it. Guess I was wrong. 37, far too young. Rest in peace, Michael. Your legacy, Aspen Comics, will live on. The talents that you trained will make you proud.

Aww, I'm actually sad that I didn't hear about this guy before his passing (or if I did, it was very fleeting). I am always deeply saddened when I hear of younger people passing. It makes you realise your own mortality in ways you really don't want to.

I saw this on the site and thought I'd share, especially since you were a #1 fan...

Aspen MLT, Inc.
