Rich Veitch’s Brat Pack

Rick Veitch (w & a & c)

Just as Moore’s Watchmen
dissected the notion of superheroes, this underground classic deconstructs the implausible comic book mainstay that is the kid sidekick. Both darkly comic and just plain dark, Rick Veitch’s Brat Pack has been considered a must-read almost since the release of its first issue in 1990. Now, 15 years after its last printing, it’s back in a new hardcover edition.

Subversively subtle yet completely over the top, Brat Pack is uncompromising, uncomfortable, and
unforgettable. It’s also an essential for every graphic novel collection. This black and white hardcover edition includes Neil Gaiman’s introduction, as well as a new essay by Rick, extra art, and the original 23-page series proposal.

Atomic Empire

Thierry Smolderen (w) • Alexandre Clerisse
(a & c)

An astonishing and captivating original graphic novel by Thierry Smolderen and Alexandre Clérisse. Inspired by a real psychological case, Atomic Empire is both a psychiatric enigma and a space opera.

1953: The world has entered the age of the Atom, but one man wonders what it means for civilization. His name is Paul—a sci-fi writer who, since childhood, has been in telepathic contact with a hero from the distant future. But when a well-known Pentagon consultant begins to take an interest in him, ”the man who communicates with the future” will commit an unforgivable sin and break an oath to his friend Zarth Arn, hero of the Galactic Empire.

Smolderen and Clérisse deliver a beautiful and contemporary tale, immersed in the fluid and aerodynamic imagery of 1950s sci-fi.

Corto Maltese: Tango

Hugo Pratt (w & a & c)

In 1923 Buenos Aires, while searching for a missing friend, Corto finds himself locked in a dangerous, yet elegant, game of cat and mouse. Before long, his investigation brings him up against an organized crime syndicate known as the “Warsavia” and their underworld network.

Just as Fable of Venice was Pratt’s homage to his hometown, Tango is a nod to Buenos Aires, where the cartoonist lived during his earliest creative successes in the late 1940s and 1950s. The atmosphere of the story is steeped in the sensual music of the tango, whose melodies almost seem to emerge from the artwork, with close-ups of the dance steps framed by Pratt with extraordinary effectiveness. The first
English-language translation of Hugo Pratt’s graphic novel set in Argentina.

There, she’s immediately threatened by creatures called Ts’liches, who claim that they’ve been searching for her so they can kill her! Luckily she’s zapped back home, but her best friend Salim is skeptical of her story… until giant spiders attack them from the other side.

Soon she discovers the secret of her past: she was born on Gwendalavir, the daughter of two powerful magicians who sent her to our world for her protection.

Jim Lee DC Legends Artifact Edition

Jim Lee began his career at Marvel comics in the mid-1980s. Rising in popularity at a rapid pace, he soon took over the company’s flagship title and made it his own: The X-Men. In the ‘90s, Lee formed his own company, WildStorm Productions, which was later bought by DC Comics, allowing the artist the opportunity to draw the adventures of some of comics’ oldest and most iconic superheroes: Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, to name a few.

This Artifact Edition will focus on the last 25 years of Jim Lee’s storied career, showcasing his rendition of the Dark Knight Detective, as well as the last Son of Krypton, all the while placing his own unique stamp on each character. Additionally, there will be examples of WildC.A.T.s and other pre-DC work.

As with all Artifact Editions, each page will be scanned from the original art, offering a unique look at the creative process of one of the most popular and creative artists working in the field. The only way you could get a better look at Jim Lee’s original art is if you were sitting next to him at his drawing board!

IDW Publishing pioneered Artist’s Edition type books and to date they have won five prestigious Eisner Awards.
