- Full Description
This oversized, signed and numbered limited edition--signed by all three creators--reproduces all of the original artwork that was produced for the three-issue comic series written by Simon Reed, penciled and inked by Mike Ploog (as one set of pages) and then painted by Simon Bisley (as a separate set). Deluxe slipcase. Each page is published at full size. You can choose to read the complete story in one or both formats. A tragic tale of two brothers on a trek across Scotland who face terror in the Highlands.
After traveling for miles lost in the mist, they chance upon a shelter, not knowing what lies before them. Darkness descends and the moon rises, an invitation to all manner of creatures. With that, the brothers, in the wrong place at the wrong time, have their lives changed forever. But the human spirit is thicker than blood--and this is the story.
This is an "original art-sized edition" unlike any before it. Not only does the book reproduce the art at the original size it was created, it also represents the work of TWO artists, not just one. Further, it covers both line and paint, side by side.
Thicker than Blood Collected Artwork Edition contains the equivalent of six issues; three issues of pen and ink line art by Mike Ploog and three issues of fully-painted art by Simon Bisley, as well as twelve covers, six by each artist.
As you will see, both artists brought something very special to Thicker than Blood. Studying each page will give you a view of two artists injecting their own unique energy into each other’s work. Mike’s composition and drawing is spot on, and Simon’s work complements and expands on Mike’s masterful page layouts. You can see just how much thought and time Simon put into each and every panel.
"For the long-time Ploog fans, not since the days of Frank Chiaramonte, laying down inks to Mike Ploog’s pencils, has another artist’s work complemented Mike’s drawings as well as Simon Bisley’s. It’s really good stuff!"
The book is printed on the highest quality paper so that the reproductions will be as close as possible to the original art.
