Nearly 10 years after the industry lost superstar artist and Aspen Comics founder, Michael Turner, his name is still synonymous with Aspen at San Diego Comic-Con. Recently, Aspen Comics has published a series of special Turner art variant covers for books like All-Star Batman and Harley Quinn. At SDCC they’re offering fans of both Marvel and DC special new variants of some high profile books featuring re-colored art by the late artist.
Aspen Comics will be offering an exclusive Spider-Men II #1 Michael Turner & Peter Steigerwald variant cover, including three new covers by the late superstar artist and limited to 3,000 copies for the color variant, 1,500 editions for the limited edition “Mary Jane” variant, and 1,000 copies for the “Miles Morales” editions.
SDCC will also give fans a chance to score an exclusive Supergirl #1 Michael Turner & Peter Steigerwald variant edition, including three new covers by the late superstar artist and strictly limited to 1000 copies (available only as a set of all three). Fans might remember some of the illustrations on the covers from pieces Turner drew for promotional materials during his DC run.
The publisher will also be offering an all-new set of three Superman/Batman #8 Michael Turner & Peter Steigerwald never-before-published variant covers strictly limited to 1,000 editions (only available as a set of all three) for purchase at the Aspen Comics Booth #2320 starting preview night July 19th. Superman/Batman #8 is a milestone issue for DC which reintroduced Supergirl into its continuity and was an early seed of how popular the character would become over the past decade.
A limited supply of the covers will also be available on AspenStore.com on July 19th.
Along with the partnership variants, Aspen will have a few in-house exclusives available ranging from flagship title Soulfire to the latest volume of Lola XoXo:
- Lola XOXO (Volume 2) #1 Siya Oum SDCC 2017 foil variant edition.
- Lola XOXO (Volume 2) #1 Siya Oum SDCC 2017 A.C.E. edition.
