The latest in IDW’s high-end Marvel Artist Select series…
IDW is famous for its Artist’s and Artisan Editions – hardcovers that reproduce original art in its full scale, down to the smallest details.
But they also have a line called the Artist Select Series, a partnership with Marvel that features high-end hardcover collections of some of the most notable work published by the House of Ideas. (For example, click here for an INSIDE LOOK at the Bob Layton Invincible Iron Man Artist Select Series entry.)
Next up? The John Byrne Fantastic Four Artist Select Series edition, which is included in IDW’s August solicitations.
