December 2022 Diamond Solicitations

Diamond has released its latest Previews World catalogue. Two AE format books were solicited. One has appeared previously in publisher solicitations but I will list Diamond solicitations as well. The other, for some reason, is appearing here first instead of IDW’s distributor Penguin Random House.

Will Eisners The Best of The Spirit Artisan Edition

Will Eisner’s The Best of The Spirit Artisan Edition

Will Eisner’s work on The Spirit was, in its way, as groundbreaking as Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane. Both artistic achievements rewrote the book on sequential storytelling and had lasting impacts on all that followed them. Featured within these pages are 17 Spirit stories all from Eisner’s peak period, 1946-1950, generally regarded as his best work on The Spirit. An Artisan Edition collects stories, covers and pages that have been reproduced from the original art. While appearing to be in black and white, these images have been scanned in colour, allowing the reader to view them as closely as possible to the original art. Ink gradients, blue pencil, corrections, and more are all clearly visible, all the wonderful subtle nuances that make original art so special and unique.
