IDW To Release Brand New Artist Edition Featuring Marvelâ€™s Fantastic Four
IDW Publishing continues to celebrate the King of Comicsâ€™ centennial birthday, this time with the forthcoming release of Jack Kirbyâ€™s Fantastic Four Worldâ€™s Greatest Artistâ€™s Edition. Jack Kirby and Stan Lee crafted what is considered to be one of the greatest runs ever in comic book history and this volume makes a solid case to bestow that honor on it!
Clocking in at 168 pages and measuring a huge 15â€ x 22â€â€”the same size as Kirbyâ€™s original artâ€”this book will feature four complete â€œtwice-upâ€ stories from the absolute prime of the run: Issue #33 (â€œSide-by-Side With the Sub-Marinerâ€), #45 (â€œAmong Us Hideâ€¦ the Inhumans!â€), #47 (â€œBeware the Hidden Land!â€), and #60 (â€œThe Peril and the Power!â€). The last issue is the final chapter of the classic storyline in which Dr. Doom steals the Silver Surferâ€™s board!
â€œPeople have literally begged for an oversized Kirby Fantastic Four book,â€ said Artistâ€™s Edition Editor, Scott Dunbier. â€œThis volume will truly live up to the title WORLDâ€™S GREATEST Artistâ€™s Edition!â€
â€œKirbyâ€™s artistic style will always be synonymous with the Fantastic Four,â€ said Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing, David Gabriel. â€œItâ€™s an honor to continue working with IDW to celebrate Jackâ€™s artwork with Jack Kirbyâ€™s Fantastic Four Worldâ€™s Greatest Artistâ€™s Edition.â€
In addition to the four stellar issues presented, there will be what can only be called the greatest Jack Kirby gallery of art ever, one that will include a staggering 22 Kirby Fantastic Four Covers and many incredible pin-ups, splashes, and interior pages from classic issues dating back all the way to Fantastic Four #3! If you thought the first Kirby Fantastic Four book was great, well, you ainâ€™t seen nothing yet!
This essential Artistâ€™s Edition will become available to own this July.
