Marvel has unveiled the variant covers to the Hulk #6 and #7 done by the late great Michael Turner.

“Living in a world without Mike is something I could never imagine,” said Hulk scribe Jeph Loeb. “He was the greatest guy. The. Greatest.  I wanted some way to share my love of his artwork and at the same time give something to the fans — who were more important to Mike than anyone can imagine — and spoke to Marvel about doing these covers.  They are pieces Mike did of the Green Hulk (one as a gift to Frank Mastromauro)and Peter Steigerwald of Aspen Comics did the recoloring and remastering.  It was terribly important to me that Peter and Aspen got to be part of this as well.  They are a celebration of Mike’s enormous talent and in turn, his life.  Enjoy.”

    I’m so glad they are sharing these covers. Michael Turner was, and still is, one of my favorites. He’s right up there with other great artists like John Byrne, George Perez, and Jim Lee.
