@VDPloeg has the volumes with remarqued editions listed on https://aeindex.org/artists-edition-gal ... ves-index/emsvcs3 wrote: Have there been many remarqued editions? I’m not up to date with the publications, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head aside from the first two Romita volumes, both of which seem to fetch quite a bit of money now. I think I remember talk of a few of the Steranko books coming with a sketch, but I’m not sure if that ever actually happened.
THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE J.H. WILLIAMS III GALLERY EDITION
Advance solicit On sale October 2018 o 230 pg. FC, 12" x 17"
J.H. Williams III shows off his artistic range and skills in the pages of the new Gallery Edition of THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, written by Neil Gaiman. Williams' original art for the entire book has been meticulously scanned at high resolution for its presentation in this large-format, Smythe-sewn hardcover edition. The numerous double-page spreads are displayed as never before with minimal gutter interference, thanks to the lie-flat feature of these books. Though Williams' art will be shown without lettering, this book will also include scaled-down reproductions of the final lettered and colored pages for those who wish to read the story.
Graphitti Designs' Gallery Editions replicate the look, feel and attitude of the original artwork. Every page is reproduced at full board size on heavy paper stock to provide fans and collectors with museum-quality reproductions that are unobtainable from any other source.
Williams' original art for this book is a joy to behold. Numerous art styles and techniques ranging from pen and ink to gray tonal washes to full-color paintings are on display for the first time in all their varied glory.
Thank for sharing these ed. Amazing that so much of that issue is together. Looks like a remarkable exhibit.edulopez wrote: Here's a more exhaustive photoreview. What's really painful for me is that I didnt know so many pages from Fantastic Four 54 were going to be there. You see, this year i couldnt travel to Barcelona due to personal and work issues, but I would have made the effort if I had known. Now its too late. You see. Fantastic Four 54 is one of my favorite comic-books from all time, due to personal reasons. It's a comic with deep emotional feeling for me and I would really have loved to be able to see them first hand. I wonder who's the owner of those pages? American? Spanish? Whoever he is, I hope he provides Scott with good scans in the future and those pages end up being published in an Artist Editon.

So far Graphitti Designs has digitally added the word balloons to art that didn't include them: Turner Superman/Batman and Kieth Batman Secrets. I would expect the same for Sandman Overture. And I'm glad for it.Dave Wallace wrote: The Absolute's RRP is US$125, I think.
I decided against triple-dipping with the Absolute on 'Overture' (I already have the regular HC and the digital versions of the single issues) as I think the rising price point and falling page count for the Sandman Absolutes is starting to make them look like exercises in milking the fans. I didn't get Absolute Death for the same reason - there just isn't enough content to justify the price.
I can't deny I'm tempted by the Gallery Edition though - that original JH3 art at full size with no words is going to look lovely.
