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.

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.

January 2013 saw the release of the first volume “published in its original colors and in the deluxe, limited & numbered (here 999 copies only), super-oversized (12 x 16 inches) format”; wow. I was on the fence about the whole thing, since I already have The Incal in Graphitti Designs hardcover and the latest Humanoids collected hardcover. Plus it was $79.99 for 48 pages! But I love limited edition hardcovers, especially oversized, and these were limited to 999 copies each and individually numbered.
