I never thought I would see this...Wrightson...Adams...Artist Editions!!

This might be old news, because the solicitations were made last month, but because I don't get Previews, this was news to me. WOW! To think that it will be now possible to get something that is that close to an original of the Muck Monster!!!
What batch of pages can be next? Wrightson's Black Cat? Golden's short Nam stories? Kevin Nowlan's Johnny B. Quick? Sandy Plunkett's Black Panther? Jim Steranko's Tower of Shadows? CORBEN!?!?!?

Neal Adams’ Thrill Kill: Artist’s Edition Portfolio
Neal Adams redefined the look of comics in the 1970s. His groundbreaking dynamic storytelling, coupled with a sense of realism that was never before seen in mainstream comics, has made Adams one of the most influential artists of the last 50 years. He was responsible for what many consider to be the definitive version of Batman, as well as being the co-creator of one of the Caped Crusader’s greatest villains: Ras Al Ghul. He has produced near legendary runs on Green Lantern, Deadman (in Strange Adventures), the Avengers, the X-Men and many more. Now IDW is pleased to present one of Neal's outstanding stories in the Artist's Edition Portfolio format. Each page scanned from the original art to match in exacting terms the look and feel of his original art. BW • $29.99 • 8 prints • 12” x 18”

Yes, I did read that the Neal Adams story is going to be Thrill Kill from either Creepy or Eerie. As I remember the printed version there were some tones added and I always thought they were a bit "heavy handed", so I am looking forward to just seeing the original line work.

I am also going to get Mazzuchelli's Daredevil, I always felt that the reproduction never did justice to the zip-a-tone work that he did on that series....this is going to be an expensive summer!
