Artist Editions

Postby Randy Clute » Fri Dec 30, 2016 22:43 +0000

I was curious if anyone else on the Dojo collected Artist Editions?

I currently own:

Will Eisner's the Spirit Volume 1
John Buscema's Silver Surfer
Wally Wood's EC Stories
Sergio Aragone's Groo the Wanderer
Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo Gallery Edition Volume 1
Michael Golden G.I. Joe Yearbook Portfolio Edition
Neal Adam's Thrillkill Portfolio Edition
Wally Wood's T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Portfolio Edition (which also has contributions by Steve Ditko, Dan Adkins and Reed Crandall)
As well as the Marvel Try-Out Book from the 80s, which has bluelines of JRJR's pencils (Thank you Stan Sakai!)

I am planning on picking up the Chris Samnee Daredevil one when it comes out this Wednesday. I am also looking forward to the Hal Foster Studio Edition, but that one is supposed to be more expensive so perhaps I will have to wait till my birthday. Also, has anyone here bought an Image Artist's Proof? I was wondering how those fare in comparison.
Have a blessed day,

I have the Hellboy in Hell one and the first Usagi one (I've gotta get the second one soon). I think they are awesome books. I would love to see a Lobster Johnson one someday.

I'm still making my way through Hellboy (I'm currently reading Hellboy Library Edition vol. 5), so haven't read the Hellboy in Hell book yet.

I just got the Chris Samnee Artist Edition, and it is easily one of the best final packages they have put out. It contains a slipcase and two books, one of which contains Mark Waid's scripts scanned by Chris Samnee (he doodles in the margins as he reads along!) The other book contains full issues of Samnee's original pages (he does not sell his pages) as well as his insanely tight layouts, which he converts to bluelines to use as pencils for the finished art. Chris Samnee's work is deceptively simple, an "Artist's artist", and his storytelling is superb!
