One-a-Day, Volume 2, #1 ... Artesia.
I have started a new sketchbook. This will hopefully turn into "One-a-day, Volume 2"...but since the first sketchbook evolved into something completely different than what I expected it to be...who knows what this will become :)
My amazon pre-order list has grown huge...thankfully amazon does not charge until they ship the books. Here is what I have on order:
The Art of Neal Adams
The Art of Steranko
Both books will be published by Vanguard and they did a pretty good job with the Michael Golden book a few years back, so I have high hope for that.
Rip Kirby Volume 2 HC
I really liked the first volume (muddy reproductions and all :)). Truly a beautiful approach to comics and storytelling.
Tony Harris: Art and Skullduggery
I have always been a fan of Tony Harris' art, ever since his run on Starman. Recently I have not been as excited about his work, although he is more popular than ever with the ExMachina series, but I loved his "RoundEye" story from a few years back and since "RoundEye" is featured on the cover I hope to see more of that inside.
The Wednesday comic series printed on nice paper in their original size. Ryan Sook, Brian Stelfreeze, Lee Bermejo....what's not to like?
Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes (Adam Hughes Cover to Cover)
I could never afford to buy all of the comics with his individual covers, so here is my chance to buy a bunch :)
X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan Volume 1
I already mentioned that in an earlier post...I am really looking forward to this.
Also on my list are a few books that already came out, but I have not geared up to buy yet:
Sinister House of Secrets- contains a reprint of Alex Toth's 36 page story "Bride of the Falcon" from 1972
House of Mystery Volume 1- contains 5 short Alex Toth story reprints for a total of 54 pages of beautiful black and white art.
