Diamond has updated Previewsworld with the September 2019 catalogue, for items shipping November 2019 or later. Scouring the full list this month shows two new Artist’s Edition format books.

Original Art: Daniel Clowes Fantagraphics Studio Edition

Fantagraphics’ latest Studio Edition turns the spotlight to the great Daniel Clowes, author of Ghost World, Patience, Wilson, David Boring, The Death Ray, Like a Velvet Glove Cast In Iron, and many other books. This collection features over 120 pages of exact facsimiles of the original art, at original size, to best showcase the artist’s cartooning process. Curated by Clowes himself, this career overview collects raw original pages from the very beginning (1986’s Lloyd Llewelyn) to his one-man anthology, Eightball and up through his best-selling 2016 graphic novel, Patience. Plus new covers, endpapers, notes and more by Clowes himself, including five pages of a never-before-published aborted graphic novel.

Walter Simonson’s The Mighty Thor Artisan Edition

WALTER SIMONSON’S MIGHTY THOR ARTISAN EDITION, collecting seven complete issues of Simonson’s Transcendent run on The Mighty Thor, including the groundbreaking first story arc that introduced Beta Ray Bill. Each page has been scanned from the original art in Walter Simonson’s personal archives, ensuring that these stories are presented as closely as possible to the actual hand-drawn artwork. While appearing to be in black and white, these pages have been meticulously scanned in color so all the subtle nuances of the art are clearly visible, from blue pencil notations, gradients in the ink, plus more-all those wonderful things that make original art unique and beautiful. This is the best of both worlds-an art book that is also a thrilling comic book!

This will be the same contents as the Artist’s Edition, only in a smaller sized softcover.
