Revealed: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 3
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Steve DitkoComing AttractionsBlake Bell 25 May 2011 10:36 AM

Mysterious Traveler: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 3
(cover design subject to change)

At his blog, The Steve Ditko Archives editor Blake Bell spills the beans on the upcoming third volume, Mysterious Traveler, due in January 2012!

"What makes this volume so special," says Blake, "is that meteoric improvement in Ditko’s work as he toils in obscurity for a company that treated their comic books like toilet paper for their more profitable magazine and song books. Such is the irony of one of the great living artists of the 20th century – working with stories churned out for an audience of children, Ditko produced the highest quality material in the industry with no editorial oversight at an amazing pace (all the stories within were produced in 1957 alone)."

Check out Blake's post for the whole scoop, and you can keep up with all the latest updates by "liking" The Steve Ditko Archives Facebook page and/or by following @blake_bell on Twitter.

Prison Pit: Book 3 - Johnny Ryan

Oh snap, Johnny Ryan dropped a bomb on Facebook last night — this brand new cover art for Prison Pit: Book 3, coming this September! (You may remember the previous version of the cover with the horned demon-looking dude.) Word is he's finished the book and it's even more insane than the first two volumes so gird yourselves!

Things to See: Jason's Athos in America, the final story
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Things to seeJasonComing Attractions 23 May 2011 6:13 PM

from Tom Waits on the Moon - Jason

Jason reports on his blog that he is finishing up the lettering on "Tom Waits on the Moon," the last story to be completed for his next book Athos in America. "No, there is no Tom Waits and no moon in the story. Possibly there is a guy called Tom," he says. Dang. In an earlier post he says he's bringing the pages to Paris tomorrow for scanning — then Hubert colors them, Jason draws the cover, and that's a wrap for the art on the book!

Things to See: from Jason's Athos in America, this time with Athos
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Things to seeJasonComing Attractions 5 May 2011 4:42 PM

Jason shares another uncolored page from his forthcoming book Athos in America, this time from the title story, at his blog. The French dialogue will be translated for our edition, of course. Basically, Athos is confused and overwhelmed by the noise, hustle and bustle, and strange food ("hot dog?") of New York City — the last line is "I feel old in New York."

The Brain That Wouldn't Virginia Woolf - Jason

Jason shares this uncolored page from his forthcoming book Athos in America. See the original handwritten script (in English) and thumbnail sketch at Jason's blog. It's the first page from the story "The Brain That Wouldn't Virginia Woolf." Great title, or greatest title?

Twain - Michael Kupperman

Michael Kupperman has taken to his blog to announce his next book Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010 and post a few illustrations from it, including the previously unseen one above. Are those donuts or bagels? I'm on tenterhooks.

Beto Is Old School! Yeah!
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under Original ArtLove and RocketsGilbert HernandezComing Attractions 3 May 2011 3:24 PM
In a brave new world where practically every cartoonist by now scans his or her original art and sends us discs or drops files on our server, Gilbert Hernandez remains staunchly stuck in the 20th century, whence he FedExes us fat packages of art every time we have a new book of his to release. And thus today we were blessed with a FedEx carton containing his 50 count 'em 50 pages for the next issue of Love and Rockets: New Stories, premiering in San Diego in July.

Here's one of 'em. (Click for a bigger version.) You'll get to see the other 49 later this summer.
