INSIDE LOOK: The JIM LEE DC LEGENDS ARTIFACT EDITION

EXCLUSIVE: 13 PAGES featuring Batman, Superman, the DC Universe and Wildstorm…

Jim Lee is arguably the biggest name in modern comics — an artist with a strikingly devout following and an executive whose impact is felt across the DC Universe every week.

Now, Lee’s DC work is getting the Artifact Edition treatment from IDW, with a remarkable selection of hyper-detailed, high-res scans of original art starring Batman, Superman, the DC Universe in general, and the artist’s own Wildstorm.

The Jim Lee DC Legends Artifact Edition — edited by Scott Dunbier and out 1/2 — pretty much encapsulates the last 25 years of the creator’s career, with Batman: Hush, All-Star Batman and Robin, Superman: For Tomorrow, Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman, Superman: Unchained, Justice League and WildC.A.T.S among the projects represented. (Plus much more, naturally.)

So check out this EXCLUSIVE INSIDE LOOK, featuring 13 pages from the book. Mind you, this selection just scratches the surface: There’s so much more in the edition itself.
