The Fantagraphics Studio Edition series illuminates the compelling process of creating comics. These oversized, coffee table volumes collect nearly 200 pages of raw, un-retouched original art, capturing every nuance of the artist’s skillful brush strokes and pen lines. These reproductions also retain the blue pencil marks, Wite-Out, and marginal comments on each page — the beautiful imperfections that provide insights into the creative process. Covering a variety of comics masters with distinctive styles and a wide range of subject matter, these collections are indispensable for fans, collectors, and students of cartooning who want to better understand and appreciate the great cartoonists of our time. This is truly the closest most of us will ever get to sitting in the artist’s studio.
