Legendary creator Joe Kubert was responsible for an amazing stream of great works, for more than 60 years. Kubert was also the subject of the acclaimed Joe Kubert's Tarzan: Artist's Edition last year. Now, his second IDW Artist's Edition presents what just may be his most beloved, most personal work, which was always one of his favorite creations. First created in the early 1950s, he reprised this for a new series at the peak of his skills. That work is collected here, collecting those four special oversized issues and covers, along with the rarely (never by us!) seen unpublished newspaper strip of Tor plus two unfinished Tor stories in pencils!
Kubert's artwork is is just amazing, and seeing it in virtually the original artwork is a rare treat. Created by the same team responsible for the Eisner Award-winning Walter Simonson's The Mighty Thor: Artist's Edition and David Mazzucchelli's Daredevil Born Again: Artist's Edition.
This offers the complete stories, with every page page scanned from the actual original art. While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art--for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
