Michael Turner : Why?

I was surfing the net when I thought of one of my favourite comic book artists - Michael Turner, creator of Witchblade and Fathom.  Once upon a time, I was a rabid (and this isn't an exaggeration) comic book collector.  Started collecting in 1981 and most recently, focused mainly on Witchblade, the Darkness and other Top Cow titles.  Fathom had beautiful art but I liked Witchblade better.  I could sit for hours reading the books.... the artwork, the dialogue, the very arrangement of the panels awed me.  If I ever felt depressed, a few hours of Witchblade would chase the blues away.  I've stopped buying WB because it's not Michael Turner doing the artwork anymore... but I always keep myself up-to-date, surfing the Top Cow site.

Typed Michael Turner in Google and one of the first entries had this as the title : Remembering Michael Turner.

Aw, man...

I knew he'd been fighting bone cancer...but he wasn't supposed to lose.  He still had so many tales inside him to much more inspiration to dole out...
