- Full Description
An amazing 137 full-size iconic covers entirely from the original artwork, including two fold-outs! A "Best of" selection of gorgeous covers by a veritable who's who of the medium. As many as 14 covers by one artist (Gil Kane), plus work by John Byrne, Dave Cockrum, Gene Colan, Michael Golden, Mike Mignola, Barry Windsor-Smith, Jim Starlin, Mike Zeck and 14 others!
All images are taken from the original artwork, with all the corrections, notes, doodles, all those special things you only find on the original art, captured by scanning the black & white pages in full color. And here is your chance to see every carefully penciled and inked line, before it got covered up and changed with color being added. Notes in the margins from artist to the colorist. Many have been signed or inscribed, undoubtedly to the collectors who acquired them.
Here's just a tiny sampling of the covers: Classic X-Men #1, 4, 6, 7, 9, Longshot #2-4, Avengers #59, 60, 75, 99, 116, Fantastic Four #116, 131-133, Thor #194, 337, 338, X-Men #114, 127, 136, 138-140, Capt.

IDW doesn't go back to press very often with their Artist's Editions, but this obviously has been one of their most popular projects.
