Aspen Comics launched its first Kickstarter campaign today to celebrate the art of founder Michael Turner.
Michael Turner Creations is a prestige format oversized hardcover with slipcase collecting all of Michael Turner’s iconic Aspen Comics work, highlighted by his flagship creations Fathom and Soulfire, as well as his work on the Ekos Preview. This 600-plus page hardcover will include the entirety of Fathom and Soulfirevolume one, the best-selling volumes of each respective series. In addition to the aforementioned material, the publisher is including a foreword by Michael Turner’s mother, Grace Crick, along with the founder of Marvel Studios’ David Maisel, the chief architect of the Turner-verse, the planned feature film slate by Mythos Studios based upon Turner’s work.
And if you ever wanted your own Turner art, Aspen Comics is diving into the archives to get a small selection of original art pieces into the hands of specific tier levels.
This selection of original art and sketches dates back to Turner’s classic Witchblade run and into his Fathom and Soulfire work, then into his later years on the iconic Marvel and DC Comics titles such as Civil War and Identity Crisis. Aspen strongly encourages interested Michael Turner Original Art buyers to finalize and select the reward tier of their choice as early as possible before they sell out.
