Official Press Release

With great trepidation, Top Cow announced today that top comic artist Michael Turner has been admitted to the hospital for emergency reconstructive hip surgery. The artist will be out of commission for several weeks and will then begin an extensive rehabilitation process.

"Our prayers go out to Michael and his family in this difficult time," says Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. "Unfortunately, the physical therapy and recovery period is going to delay the release of the next few issues of Fathom and push back the scheduled Fathom tour. We are working with Diamond and retailers to ensure everything continues smoothly."

The family has asked that the hospital Michael has been admitted to remain undisclosed, but that those who wish to send cards or flowers please send them to Top Cows corporate address and they will be forwarded to his hospital room:
