In the late eighties, early nineties, comic books were starting to get back in gear. Most were about superheroes, and others ran independently. An unknown talent named Michael Turner, was one of those people. One of his major works, Witchblade caught my attention. And just something about his style mixed with manga + american storytelling wove so well. Some characters you thought you'd never see in a tale quite like this one.
Sadly he was diagnosed with a bone marrow type cancer in 2000. But he bravely kept going, and got back into the industry. Until recently, he lost the fight. That aside, he's remembered for bringing something new to storytelling, one that cannot be taken for granted.
