    Michael Turner and Alex Ross A Tribute to Michael Turner Fathom Painted Cover Original Art (Aspen, 2008). This dazzling image of Fathom graced the cover of this heartfelt project. Following the untimely passing of the Aspen founder on June 27th, 2008, the publisher decided to pay tribute to Michael Turner and the legacy he left behind with this special memoriam issue. The creative force behind such best-selling titles as Fathom, Soulfire, and Witchblade, and the cover artist to numerous mainstream comic events such as Marvel's Civil War and DC Comics' Identity Crisis and Justice League of America, Michael Turner's artistic vision was unlimited. In honor of Turner's tremendous spirit and body of work, as well as his countless contributions to the comic book industry, Aspen Comics and the entire comic book community celebrated Turner's amazing life both in and outside of comics. Acclaimed writer Jeph Loeb said, "When Aspen (Frank, Peter, Vince) asked about doing this tribute book you could put a razor blade between 'Do you want -- ' and my '-- Hell, yes.' Mike was a friend -- the best kind -- but he also was a supreme talent. Being able to be a small part in this tribute is a privilege and an honor. He's missed, but this is a chance to see how others saw him. We have to keep telling stories about Mike -- it's how he lives on." Alex Ross pulled out all the stops with his show-stopping cover contribution. This superb piece has an image area of 12" x 18.5", and it's in Excellent condition. Signed by both artists.
