Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

Way too young to go.
Although I never cared for his work and found his artwork to be terrible as it was inescapable.
I imagine there will sure;y be a tribute issue or something coming out in a few months - certainly from Aspen.

Shame, I always liked his art even though a lot of people didn't.

His Wizard tutorial helped me a lot with drawing.

He will be missed.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I met and spoke with Michael many times over the last few years and he was one of the nicest guys in the industry that I've dealt with. He was always very generous with his time and was very giving to his fans.

Unfortunatlely his artwork was very expensive so I only own two commissioned pieces by him. I had intended to get a third shortly but obviously that won't be happening now.

Wow. Surprising and Sad.

I fell in the margins of where I didn't mind his art, it didn't have me saying wow or anything, but it sure didn't make me not want to buy the comic.

He'll be missed, especially by Marvel for variants.

This saddens me, as I did enjoy his art, and I just hate to see people go, particularly this young. And I also wonder if my dad knows yet; I think Turner was one of his favorites.

Those of us fortunate enough to meet him, and chat with him.

or to get his signature, or a sketch.

Cherish it, knowing that for a brief moment, our lives intersected. Cherish your sketches, and autographs knowing that he created them with his hands.

a great talent has left us, the reason, we do not know.

Yeah, Mike's been battling cancer for quite a few years now. I think I might have seen the report back in 2000, in a Wizard Magazine article, and mentioned again for a special issue. Before his cancer was discovered, I had heard that he was trying to get out of comics: the man was more a fitness/extreme sports fan than anything; surfing, mountain climbing, etc. The fact that he had such a zest for life makes it all the more depressing, and it's just so weird to realize he'd been doing comics work for as long as he has; seems like just yesterday I was looking through his work in Witchblade. The fact that he lived this long after battling what was reported to be a pretty advanced cancer is amazing in and of itself.

I can't say I was a huge fan of his art, but he was a nice guy that definately did not deserve the raw hand given to him.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I found out because one of the local comic shop chains here (Lone Star) had a 'memorial' display of his work up front near the registers so you could buy it.

They actually told us to buy them quick because we would be able to sell them on eBay for more money.

I freaking hate Lone Star...
