ae-book-logoWelcome to the Artist’s Edition (AE) Index, comprehensive coverage of all things Artist’s/Gallery/Original Art/Studio Edition.

Individual coverage links: AE News | AE Reviews | AE Previews | AE Podcast, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.


An index of original art edition books using scans of original art at full size, organized alphabetically by publisher. All cover images are of the regular edition first printing. Price is the listed retail price by the publisher, either from their solicitation or in their online store. See our format definitions in Defining The AE Formats.

I’ve begun redoing the photos in reviews, starting with my oldest. I’ll be taking twenty or more shots of the books’ pages. An asterisk (*) is added to the review link when the photos are updated.

Latest updates: Upcoming Books (in Red). Reviews: Reed Crandall’s EC Stories Artist’s EditionDeadman: Kelley Jones Gallery EditionMichael Kaluta’s Starstruck Artist’s EditionJohn Romita’s The Amazing Spider-Man Artist’s Edition.

Diamond is now using the last Wednesday of the mid-year, June 28 2017, or end of year, December 27 2017, in place of TBD. I’ll continue to use TBD.

Initial reported sales are based on Diamond’s North American sales numbers for the book’s release month; unfortunately they only rank the Top 300 Graphic Novels and Top 10 Books. Inexplicably Diamond ranks Artist’s Editions in Graphic Novels or Books interchangeably. Publishers don’t seem willing to release sales numbers so please take Diamond’s reports as estimates.

Book’s stock status at Diamond is reported along with the Diamond item code for ordering from your local comic shop. Solicited date has been added to show when it was released in comparison to when it was supposed to be released.
