Re: Artist Editions Discussion thread (IDW, Dark Horse, etc)

Scott's Page is awesome although he keeps costing me money on books I don't think I need until I see his reviews. A Scott on Scott interview would be great. If you get a chance to arrange this between you please do. BTW thanks Mr Dunbier on your recommendation of My Favourite Thing is Monsters. An i...

Re: Artist Editions Discussion thread (IDW, Dark Horse, etc)

Spawn Vault Edition has arrived. Preordered day one. Signed but not a notorized or hand sketch variant. Printed on similar stock to IDW AE books. Only thumbed through but initial thoughts: Hate the cover. The graphic design on the IDW and DC books is far better. There is a slight variance in inked b...

The price at FP in the UK was the best price I've seen for a twice up AE.

I might buy it later on if anybody can get stock once the rush has died down.

<t>A thousand apologies Scott but I last month I did finally pick up Marvel Covers Modern Era and Williamson Empire Strikes Back. Both were beyond superlatives. Todd Mac is an odd one. I was a teen in the early 90s and him, Jim Lee and Whilce Portacio were a big part of my comic buying then. Never r...

<t>Just a look at Retro Randy blog gives an idea of how Idw have pumped up their output on these. So many books in such a short release period.<br/> <br/> I'd like the scrooge volumes but can't afford to buy them as an ongoing series. I'll buy S.W as it has personal nostalgic value. Out of the other...

I can't believe Steranko 2 will be out May 27th folowing Scott's comments. I hope it is but I doubt it.

Anybody got EC2 yet? Did it come out today?

£40 is about all it's worth. My biggest disappointment in the AE run so far.

Peanuts AE getting the push on social media etc. Disappointed that it won't be true 1:1 but I have no idea how large the original artwork is. Any ideas?

<t>Be interesting to know what IDW's print run of each of these were. I'm surprised the Diamond figures are so low to be honest.<br/> <br/> The Steranko book looks stunning and it as it may generate as much non fan interest as the Wally Wood book did. Might be an injection of life blood into the ser...
