Sara Pezzini needed the Witchblade to come into otherworldly powers. Witchblade, the comic turned TV series, needed Michael Turner to come to life.
Turner was the artist who helped spawn the supernatural franchise. In comicdom, he was also known for creating Fathom, launching Aspen Comics, named for Fathom's heroine, and lending his pen line to the likes of Superman, Batman and Wolverine.
Online, his company produced—and still does—NBC.com's series of Heroes graphic novels—he provided the art for the very first chapter.
