If you've ever wished you could get a glimpse into Jim Woodring's sketchbooks — and why wouldn't you? — your desires are soon to be fulfilled in spades as we present Problematic, a curated assortment of about 300 of the thousands of pages Jim has filled over the last 8 years or so in his pocket-sized Moleskine notebooks. Printed at larger than actual size in a chunky hardcover cleverly disguised as an actual sketchbook (complete with trompe l'oeil stickers on the covers), these drawings provide a previously unseen view into the creative mind of one of comics' great visionaries. Look for the book in January; survey a 21-page sample, and pre-order your copy, right here.
