Nancy Is Happy

Just arrived via FedEx this evening, the first advance copy of Nancy Is Happy: Complete Dailies 1943-1945 by Ernie Bushmiller! We're all pawing at it excitedly, admiring Jacob Covey's above-and-beyond design job. Wait'll you see it, folks, seriously.

Someday my perfectly colored Prince will come

The first image is from Nostalgia Press's 1978 re-colored version.
The second image is from Fantagraphics Books' 1991 re-colored version.
The third image is from the original Syndicate proof sheets which will eventually be used in Fantagraphics' Prince Valiant Volume 6 later this year.

While I think the Danish colorists behind the 1991 version made a (heh) valiant effort at capturing the glory of Foster (the less said about the Nostalgia Press version the better), it's pretty obvious which one is the keeper here. (Also, Foster didn't make the native Americans the color of boiled lobsters.)

Rich Tommaso's The Cavalier Mr. Thompson on Kickstarter
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Rich Tommasogood deedsComing Attractions 13 Dec 2011 12:54 AM

We'll be helping to distribute Rich Tommaso's forthcoming self-published graphic novel The Cavalier Mr. Thompson (as in Jim, not Kim), but before that can happen he's got a Kickstarter campaign going to help pay for the printing costs and help him finish it in time for its European publication deadlines. We've published a few of Rich's comics in the past and most recently you can see his stellar coloring work in our Carl Barks Library series!

Kick in some bucks and you could get a signed copy of the book along with bonuses like prints, buttons, original art or even a 3D sculpey rendition of a scene from the book! Watch the video above for more info and check out a 75-page (!) preview from the book at Rich's website!
