John Buscema's Marvel Heroes Artist's Edition cover prelim

John Buscema’s Marvel Heroes Artist’s Edition

Featuring an outstanding sampling of Big John Buscema’s classic stories, covers, and interior pages from the mid 1960s to the late ’70s, all in the groundbreaking and multi-Eisner Award-winning Artist’s Edition format!

Buscema was a true “artist’s artist,” his stellar anatomy, coupled with dynamic storytelling, made him one of the most revered and respected artists in the Marvel Pantheon. This volume will contain several complete stories (including Avengers and Sub-Mariner), plus incredible examples of art from his runs on Avengers, Fantastic Four, Thor, Sub-Mariner, and more. There will be a gallery section chock full of covers. And, as with all Artist’s Editions, all the art in this book has been scanned from Buscema’s originals, enabling the reader to be able to clearly view each page as never before-clearly seeing pencils, editorial notations, ink gradients, more-all the little details and nuances that makes original art unique. Unless you were looking over John Buscema’s shoulder in his studio, you’ll never have a better opportunity than this to see his artwork as it truly looks!

BONUS-This book will feature several foldouts presenting a number of Buscema’s early, larger covers at full size-a true treat for art lovers!

Steranko Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Artisan Edition cover

Steranko Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Artisan Edition

Previously presented in the much-acclaimed Artist’s Edition format, and winner of an Eisner Award, now you can appreciate this historic run of comics in the new Artisan Edition format.

In the mid-1960s, Jim Steranko burst into the Marvel Age of comics in a BIG way, and the innovative, cinematic techniques he introduced in his brief tenure at The House of Ideas stand to this day as a high-water mark in the history of graphic storytelling. More than any other series, Steranko is most associated with Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. This Artisan Edition collects the first 12 stories of Steranko’s run, from Strange Tales #151-162, as well as his covers from these issues. Additionally, there will be a select number of extras presented. And, as usual, nearly all the pages have been scanned from the original art, from Steranko’s private archives.

Story and art by Jim Steranko with additional script by Stan Lee and Roy Thomas. Additional Layouts by Jack Kirby.
