This week the final chapter of SHIELD VOL. 1 hit the stands. Which means that soon there will be a collection of the first 6 issues in a single book. There’s going to be a hard back version which is really exciting to me. This will actually be the first graphic novel to be published completely drawn by me. I can’t wait to have it in my hands.
So, for all you trade waiters, the wait to read Shield is almost over. And I hope that you’re not like me in that I say that I’ll wait for the trade paper back and then forget. Then much later I think, what was I going to buy as a trade? And when I remember, I can’t remember why I cared. And then I go back to bed.
It will be called "S.H.I.E.L.D.: Architects Of Forever" And it will be in stores April 6 2011. It is available for pre-order if you are the type of person who like to feel like you bought something.
Here’s maybe what it will look like.
I bet it will have a title on it. That’s just the image on the Marvel sight right now, but it gives you a feeling of just what this book will be like. The shape, the hard backness of it, an illustration that looks like it’s on the cover, it’s in perspective so that you can see about how thick it may or may not be.
Here’s Gerald Parel’s very kick ass cover, followed by the black and white version of my variant cover, followed by the sketch I did for my variant cover, followed by a photograph?
So can you guess what I have?
That’s right! Moebius’s new Arzak book! And I’m very excited about it.
No. I’m actually talking about Outlaw Territory Vol. 2 which contains my and Jeremy Barlow’s western comic "They’ll Bury You Where you Stand!" This is a comp issue that was sent to me. It seems this book will finally be out next week. Feb 23
Just look at that Arzak book over there. Bet you wish I was flipping that open.
I Realized the other day that I completed this western story 2 years ago. It’s very nice to see it finally out, and it printed really nice. The whole book looks great. Please check it out.
