Aspen Comics has launched a Kickstarter campaign focused on their founder and superstar artist, the late Michael Turner. Michael Turner Creations is Aspen’s most ambitious publication to date.
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 EkosPreview. This 600-plus page hardcover will include the entirety of Fathom and Soulfire volume 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.
Aspen has brought on some of their best-selling cover artists such as Siya Oum, Alex Konat, Jordan Gunderson, Talent Caldwell, and Tyler Kirkham, in addition to high-profile artists such as David Mack and Kendrick Lim for their first-ever Aspen covers, a variety of Michael Turner Creations dust jackets available exclusively in the Kickstarter campaign. Plus, the publisher will be offering a special signed dust jacket by legendary artist Alex Ross.
For the first time in Aspen’s history, the publisher is opening up their vaulted Michael Turner original art collection from his personal sketchbook and offering a selection of original layouts, sketches and fully illustrated pieces drawn by Turner across multiple reward tiers. 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.
The publisher is also debuting several new Aspen Comics merchandise including featured items such as a “Grace” from Soulfire plush doll, new Aspen Comics Fathom and Soulfire acrylic figures, Kickstarter exclusive comics, and several new Michael Turner related items and products for purchase as add-ons.

Black Lightning is an Outsider no more! It’s up to Katana to take up the reigns of leader-ship as things look their darkest for the team-and the new addition of Babylon has thrown the team into flux. Plus, Batman is far from thrilled with the secrets that the Signal and Orphan are keeping from him. And this is exactly what Ra’s al Ghul wants: a broken team that doesn’t stand a chance against his new League and their deadliest assassin yet.
