EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: Yeah, this one’s nothing short of extraordinary.
UPDATED 9/2/17: Walt Simonson turns 71! If you missed this the first time around, check it out! If you didn’t, enjoy it again! Magnificent stuff!
IDW is publishing Walter Simonson’s The Mighty Thor: The Return of Beta Ray Bill Artist’s Edition on 6/28 — and it’s easily one of the best of these editions we’ve seen yet.
The 160-page hardcover, produced with Marvel’s blessing, includes six (!) complete issues of The Mighty Thor (#349-354) — and Simonson’s all-splash #380. Plus, all sorts of extras, including sketches and whatnot, all scanned from the original art.

It’s amazing stuff to see in the oversized 12″ x 17″ format. (List price? $125.)

And, seriously, this is just scratching the surface, because this book is packed.
So here goes: 13 fantastic pages, presented in issue order (though I varied the order of the pages):
