The Secret is out!

https://mikewieringotellostribute.com/

The Mike Wieringo TELLOS Tribute is a 500 page, original graphic novel presented in two over-size, hardcover volumes. It features the artwork of over 200 of the comics industry’s most popular and talented artists and is dedicated to the memory of late artist, Mike Wieringo, with all proceeds from this project being donated to the ASPCA in Mike’s name.

Three years in the making, the Mike Wieringo Tellos Tribute continues the adventures of characters made popular in the original Tellos series created by Mike and writer Todd Dezago and published by Image Comics. They are; Jarek—a young hero with magikal abilities he does not yet understand, Koj—a tiger-warrior who is both Jarek’s partner and protector, Serra—the young pirate queen who finds herself somehow linked to these two reluctant heroes and, Rikk—the fox-thief bent on finding his fortune but, more often than not, finds trouble instead.

In this tale, they are reunited to stop the dread Sur-Azal, the ruthless leader of the denizens of Nether, slithering, scuttling creatures that dwell far beneath the lands of Tellos. As Sur-Azal and his minions move to make Tellos habitable once more for his primordial brethren, other dark creatures called The Baden sweep across the many kingdoms, terrorizing and possessing the bodies of the population.

Produced by a dazzling array of Mike’s friends, fans, and colleagues, the Mike Wieringo Tellos Tribute is dedicated to the memory of this kind, caring, and talented artist and friend.

Thanks for the news, Gaffey. That's an astounding list of artists.

(Has it been ten years already? :( )

Edit; thanks Steve, even. :roll: Thanks to Steve and Gaffey!

I wonder if any of the art will be auctioned off to benefit the ASPCA?

Where did you find Stan's art?

Is Tellos good? Amazon Kindle has the first issue for free, so I read it and liked what I saw.

It appears the Tellos Colossal vol. 1 hardcover is out of print and expensive, but the softcover has serious quality problems so I don't want that one. Was wondering if I should pick up a "good" condition HC for $20.

Should I assume that this is not the secret project that Stan worked on recently that put Usagi on a small hiatus since the pencils are from last year, or is this the one?

Fed Ex delivered Volume 1 today. It's a nice book with a confusing table of contents. At least to me. Worth the $50 donation to the ASPCA

Ah, maybe that's what's scheduled for delivery today from FedEx - I'm expecting a mystery package coming from CENVEO, EUREKA, MO...

Hmm.... so index doesn't jive with the contents?

Is it just one page from Stan? Looks like the best page in the book! :D

I hope my copy arrives without problem since it was addressed to a PO Box.

Really wish web-sites would list the shipping method to be used in the ordering process to avoid problems like this. :(

Yeah, it's from MO. Someone knocked on the door and by the time I got up I saw the FedEx truck driving way. I had no idea what was in the box. I didn't know if I should open it? :lol:

Is it just one page from Stan?
I only saw the one page. There's a fair amount of errors in the book, but I consider it a freebie for donating to the ASPCA. Not a big deal. It has a nice sewn binding. I always prefer that to glued.

Got my book today as well. As Gaffey points out, the index page numbering is significantly off on many of the listings. The chapters listings are all page accurate, but when multiple artists contributed to a chapter, the artist breakdown under that chapter are all off by 12 pages.

For instance, in Gaffey's picture, chapter 5 says it starts on page 203. That is correct. But you'll notice that the artist breakdown page numbers list previous pages. If you add 12 to each artist, then you get to the correct page. Chapter 6 then starts on page 215, as correctly listed. Since there was only one artist on that chapter, there isn't a page/artist breakdown and therefore doesn't list conflicting pages.

The print and binding quality is nice. I haven't read the series before, so need to find the first run. Unfortunately, the current tpb just falls apart like crazy from the reviews I read. The hardcover is discontinued and pretty expensive. Flipping through this tribute, however, I'm enjoying the various art styles. This should be fun to take around and get signed by the various artists.
