"EC Covers Artist's Edition" gives fans a close-up look at classic comic book art

Another of IDW's large-format art collections, the "EC Covers Arists' Edition" is out in June and available for pre-order now from Amazon.

Details from IDW:

EC Comics, under the guidance of publisher Bill Gaines, was--according to the editor of this collection--the greatest line of comics ever done. This once-in-a-liftime Artist's Edition collects more than 140 EC covers by their best and brightest talents. The luminaries included in this gigantic (15 x 22 inches!) tome include:

Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman, Graham Ingels, Al Williamson, Johnny Craig, Frank Frazetta, Jack Davis, Al Feldstein, and more! To make a baseball analogy, this is a Murderers Row every bit as noteworthy as the '27 Yankees!

Also includes an Introduction by noted EC scholar Thommy Burns.

Each cover in this collection has been scanned from the original art While appearing to be in black and white, these images were scanned in COLOR, enabling the reader to see all the subtle nuances that make original art unique. Blue pencil notations, zip-a-tone, Duoshade, whiteout--all of these and more are clearly visible. Honestly, the only better way to see these covers is to be holding the original art in your hands!

Hardcover, 160 pages.
