Aspen Launches ‘Michael Turner Creations’ Kickstarter

by James Ferguson

Aspen Comics has launched its first Kickstarter campaign focused on its founder and artist, the late Michael Turner. The campaign is for Michael Turner Creations, a prestige format oversized hardcover with slipcase collecting all of Turner’s Aspen Comics work including creations like Fathom and Soulfire. This 600+ page book includes the entirety of Fathom and Soulfire Volume One, a foreword by Turner’s mother, Grace Crick and Marvel Studios’ David Maisel, the chief architect of the Turner-verse, the planned feature film slate from Mythos Studios based on Turner’s work.

Michael Turner Creations features an array of talented artists for dust jackets exclusively available through this Kickstarter campaign. This includes Siya Oum, Alex Konat, Jordan Gunderson, Talent Caldwell, and Tyler Kirkham as well as the first ever Aspen covers from David Mack and Kendrick Lim. There’s also a special signed dust jacket from Alex Ross.
The Kickstarter campaign features digital and physical copies of the book itself with a variety of dust jackets as well as some original Michael Turner artwork from his personal sketchbook, original layouts, and fully illustrated pieces. This covers work dating back to Turner’s Witchblade run, Fathom, Soulfitre, and artwork for Marvel’s Civil War and DC’s Identity Crisis.
At the time of this writing, the campaign has already surpassed its funding goal and is working towards stretch goals. It’s running through April 29th, 2020.
