The first in Dynamite’s Art Edition library, Frank Thorne’s Red Sonja Art Edition is a boon for fans but suffers visually, be it ever so slightly.
A different kind of Lovecraft tale skillfully adapted by I.N.J. Culbard, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath is a worthy addition to this line of graphic works.
A mighty collection of awesome DC material, Walter Simonson Manhunter and Other Stories Artist’s Edition is a must-have volume.
A long delayed edition finally available, Basil Wolverton’s Weird Worlds Artist’s Edition shines a light on the artist’s career in comics.
Being a fan of the artist’s edition line from IDW and all the other publishers that have followed, releasing books in the same format, I’ve started an index of all current and solicited volumes. Please use it as a reference and let me know what other information you’d like to see listed. I own most of these so it’s been fairly easy to collect the information, but as more publishers join in information will have to be gathered from solicitations and online reviews.
IDW continues to diversify its Artist’s Edition line with Marvel Covers Artist’s Edition, a collection of nothing but.
The first and only artist edition style book of Barry Windsor-Smith sumptuous artwork, Conan: Red Nails Original Art Archives Volume 1 presents the full story in a wonderful package.

A look at a brief period of work from a classic DC artist, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: The Complete Murphy Anderson Sundays, 1958-1959 is a niche product aimed at a very small audience.
Finally Jack “King” Kirby is represented sumptuously in IDW’s Artist’s Edition series by way of his later DC work, New Gods.
Well designed and produced, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy In Hell And Other Stories Artist’s Edition has a major flaw. I gleefully opened my copy, enjoying each page as I flipped through the table of contents and indicia beautifully designed by Randy Dahlk. I landed on the first page of Hellboy In Hell and noticed there was not text. Then I flipped to the next page and saw no text. Skimmed the full 110 pages of Hellboy In Hell story and there is no text.
Stunning, jaw-dropping gorgeous work presented in its original size, Steranko Nick Fury Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Artist’s Edition is without peer.

A sumptuous collection of amazing British 1960s strips by Tom Tully and Frank Bellamy, Heros The Spartan is a must for comic art fans.
