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.
