[Aspen Comics]Marina Del Rey, CA (3-25-03) June 2003 marks the debut of Michael Turner's

new publishing endeavor Aspen MLT Inc. A fully recognized publishing and

entertainment company, Aspen is comprised of several of the industries top

artists, writers, and creators, aiming to become one of the leading comic book

publishers in the industry. Heading the charge is Turner himself, releasing what

could possibly be his last fully illustrated Fathom story, and following that up

with the launch of his newest creator owned title this coming August.

"Starting this company was one of the best decisions of my life," stated

Turner. "It's been so exciting because the response to our upcoming books

and products has been pretty unbelievable. It's one of the greatest

feelings, which really helps fuel my creative fire, ensuring everything I

draw and produce gets better each and every day." When asked about his

upcoming projects, Turner had this to say, "I feel like a kid at a candy

store knowing that both Jeph Loeb and Geoff Johns will be working with me on

my upcoming titles. Each one of those guys brings such a tremendous talent

with them, I wish I was able to draw both books at the same time!"

With a contest in Wizard Magazine currently under way to determine which new

title Turner draws first, Dragonfly: Soulfire or Ekos, fans will be able to get a small

taste of both offerings within the pages of Michael Turner Presents: Aspen #1.
