So, are these editions just the artwork? I'm trying to figure out why Frank Miller was airbrushed out of Daredevil: Born Again.

They are specifically about the art, yeah. It DOES include the writing (or at least the Wally Wood one does, so I assume the others do) but the point of the books is that they are scans of the original art with no touch-ups, and the colour of the original art is the colour of the pages - so you can see where they have done paste ups etc. Plus they are at the actual size the artist drew the page (meaning they are gigantic books).

I usually don't get art books, but there are some I just love.  One of my all time favourites was a book showcasing Vertigo covers/promotional art.

Man I love EC Comics.  They are still amazing books.

Are the Artist's Editions hardcovers? Cuz I might have to get on board. The notion of Groo The Wanderer without the frequently-irritating Mark Evanier in tow would be a dream come true.

Alls we need is for Josie and the Pussycats and The Bananasplits to show up and we've got a pretty bitching battle of the fake bands. *

Actually not the first. Archie Vs. Kiss is a sequel to this 4 issue mini-series:



It just came out in Trade last week.

This is the best Archie crossover ever though:

I finally got around to reading Nexus # 99-102.

   

Damn... I didn't realize just how much I missed that incredible series this last 10 years.  Who knows when Baron and Rude will bring out an issue 103.  :(

When DC did the new 52, I picked up several comics. Unfortunately, I moved, and have been too lazy to continue. I'll probably find someplace with back issues that I can pick up, and I'd really like to, because my dad built me a bookshelf with a magazine rack in it for comics because he saw I was enjoying them.

Got this for my birthday.



In a related note:  AAAAAAAAWWWWWW YEEEEEEAH!  I think I'll save reading it until I head out to Winnipeg on Wednesday!  That's what my plane trip will be about.  That... or THIS!



In deluxe hardcover!  FINALLY!  Now maybe they'll get around to reprinting Zenith.
