Creator Spotlight – Michael Turner

Michael Turner Wonder Woman

The comic industry lost one of the industries best talents eight years ago. Michael Turner would have turned 45 years old on April 21st. He was a fan favorite that delivered on every single cover he put out. His pencils were unmistakable. His covers were remarkable. Michael died on June 27th 2008 at the young age of 37. Gone way too soon, but he left fans with the memory of his work. A vast body of work that spans from 1994 to 2008. Recently though, Turner’s art has been showing up once again through exclusive variant covers. They’ve garnered a lot of attention and have sold out….quickly. Michael Turner is doing it again, making fans love him all over again.

Here are a few of our favorite books. We couldn’t list them all, so maybe your favorite was left off. No hard feelings. His body of work is simply too expansive. Too many to choose from. Enjoy our list below.

Thanks Michael, your work will always live on.

**Please note. There are many variations to Michael Turner comics. Many covers, many titles holding the the same name with different years, publishers, etc. When clicking the RED links or comic cover, some results will bring random comics not pertaining to the particular comic you clicked. Scroll down through the search result on Ebay to find the exact book you’re looking for.

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Detective Comics #871 graded 9.6. It’s kind of a rare thing these days to get a JOCK signature. Anyone that follows InvestComics knows how much we love the artist Jock. We have an entire checklist of our favorite works by him right HERE. So this comic is a graded 9.6 with a Scott Snyder and a Jock signature. For only $99, this is a nice book.

Hold on folks, here come the DC Rebirth books. Be on the look out for first appearances. It only takes ONE to breakout and cause quite a stir in the aftermarket. Be on top of these good stories as DC breaths new life into their Rebirth era. Here are some highlights; Green Lanterns Rebirth #1 puts writer Geoff Johns back with artist Ethan Van Sciver on a Green Lantern book. These two make Lantern poetry together. “Newer” Green Lanterns Jessica Cruz (first appearance in Justice League #30 – 2014) and Simon Baz (First appearance was in The New 52 FCBD Special Edition #1 – 2012. First origin was in Green Lantern #0 – 2012) lead the charge here.

Batman Rebirth #1 begins a new chapter for DC’s iconic hero. Scott Synder and Tom King write. Calender Man will be the adversary Bats has to deal with in the first issue. And in case you’re wondering, Detective Comics #259 (1958) was the first appearance of Calender Man.
The latest issue of Batman Beyond examines the intricacies of the character Rewire. Check out Batman Beyond #13 for the scoop. Another scoop; Rewire first appeared in Batman Beyond #2 (2013).

A mega four issue comic crossover happens all in one comic this week. Where you ask? Only one comic could pull this off, Deadpool #13. Duh! That Khoi Pham variant cover though…….
Marvel’s Civil War II officially gets under way this week. Civil War II #1 is solicited as “CLASSIFIED”. More of the same with Invincible Iron Man #10. Boy we hate that. Now we have to wait another week before finding out what is so “classified”. The Rafael Alburquerque hip hop cover is dope though. We’ll just stare at that until Wednesday’s new comic book day.
