Amazon.com: HASH(0x9cb316e4) out of 5 stars 12 reviews
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Michael Turner was a comic book artist best known for drawing sexy female heroes, although he was also good at rendering muscular male heroes. He was one of the most in demand artists when he tragically died from cancer at the age of 37. His most notable work was on Witchblade, Fathom, Superman/Batman and Soulfire. This hardcover book reprints most of the cover artwork he did for those books and others on high quality paper. The art is very nice, but the articles that accompany the art are rather superficial. Still, the artwork makes the book worth having, although it's not worth the cover price.

HASH(0x9c85b3c0) out of 5 stars A Fond Farewell to One of the Best Aug. 2 2013
By Andrew Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Michael Turner was one of the industry's premier artists, and for good reason too-he was one of the very best. His passing in 2008 after an eight year battle with bone cancer was a major blow, not just to his family and friends, but his fans and the comic book industry as a whole as well. Although he started out drawing "bread houses" as once noted by his mentor and still one of the best artists in the business to this day, Marc Silvestri, Turner proved to be an incredibly fast learner and soon aided Silvestri in creating the immensely popular Witchblade series at Top Cow Industries. Michael Turner went on to start his own company, Aspen Comics, where he created his signature series, Fathom and Soulfire, among others. Turner had an amazing amount of success, even though he was in an industry with artist like Jim Lee, Jeff Scott Campbell, and many others who are masters of their craft. His strong success can be seen in all of his work, but most notably in his women. While many artists illustrate comic book women in a more stereotypical "pin-up girl" fashion, Turner gave every one of his girls a grace and elegance not seen anywhere else in comic books while still empowering them with great strength.

The "Wizard: Michael Turner Tribute Edition", is the re-release of the Millennium Edition and is part biography, part collection of Turner's works over the years. Of the 176 pages, 100 of them are part of a gallery showcasing his many covers and pin-ups for Witchblade, Fathom, Soulfire, and the many pieces he did for DC and Marvel Comics. The rest of the hardcover book contains various testimonials, stories, and insights into Turner's beginnings as an artist and a look at a typical week over at Aspen Comics. If you're a fan of Michael Turner, on any level, then I highly recommend this collection,and it also acts as a very nice eulogy for the life of a comic artist who many described as the "nicest and most humble guy you'll ever meet". The comic book world is lesser for the loss of Michael Turner, but he is still with us in his works and this Wizard Tribute Edition pays him his well due respect.

If you like this product, I also recommend the Millennium Editions of both Jim Lee and Marc Silvestri.

By Tammy Atkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is wonderful! I loved reading about how Michael Turner became an artist, his sad struggle with cancer, and the capturing of some of the best work and sketches that he did. I would recommend anyone who has a deep love for stories and comic books to buy this book to remember such a creative beautiful soul. The comic book world will not be the same without him.

HASH(0x9d068744) out of 5 stars Michael Turner Tribute Edition Wizard March 3 2010
By hadouken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is what is described, a decent collection of a lot of Michael Turners work and a few looks into the production and personal life. Pretty inspiring story. If you're a fan of his work it's perfect. Not a sketchbook though , just a collection of his covers, issues, creations, there area few sketches thrown in as well. Crazy to think how good he would have been had he been reading and drawing comics his whole life like most comic artist had. He got into comics as an adult and 5 months later was on his way to being the biggest name in comics next to J. Scott Campbell and Joe Madureira.
