    I think I read he's a Marvel exclusive artist, back has he actually done anything besides covers since he started? Isn't that kind of a waste? I loved his Supergirl run on Superman/Batman.

    He's only done marvel covers, but he's doing all the artwork for the upcoming Ultimate Wolverine solo series written by Jeph Loeb.

    He has cancer right now, so his periods of art waver.

    He did some work for Image as well, prior to getting cancer. Doing Witchblade and then leaving that to do Fathom. And if I remember correctly he also had his hip replaced due to it being shattered in a boating accident.

    Did his cancer return? I thought he had a tumor removed years ago.

    His cancer is in remission but he still looks weak. I'm sure he still has to go for treatments every once in a while and that wipes him out.

    As for exclusives, I'm not sure if everyone knows how they work. Turner has a Marvel exclusive which basically means he can do work anywhere else except DC. DC exclusives are exactly the opposite. They can do work anywhere except Marvel. This is why you'll see stuff from exclusive artists pop up in Image and Top Cow books.

    Whoa, I didn't know Turner has cancer. Man, that sucks even worse than his art. :( 

    (Just because I can't stand his work doesn't mean I wish him ill.)

    I think it usually means (at least for writers, anyway), that you can only work for that publisher except for creator-owned projects (like PAD's Fallen Angel series).

    Well since Image and Top Cow allow for creators to retain their projects, that's basically saying the same thing. That's why Tim Seeley published Loaded Bible through Image rather than Devil's Due.
