- Full Description
This 148-page Fine Art Edition includes the following complete Jungle Book stories: "The King's Ankus," "Red Dog" and "The Spring Running" plus three of Russell's most acclaimed early works: "Siegfried and the Dragon," "La Sonnambula and the City of Sleep" and "Breakdown on the Starship Remembrance." Includes artist's notes with background info on each of the stories as well as a bonus gallery featuring even more Jungle Book-related Russell art and covers. One of two matched editions from a new publisher.
This beautiful 12x17 oversized hardcover features complete stories scanned from P. Craig Russell's stunning original art. While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in color to recreate as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual originals, including blue pencils, notes, art corrections and more. Pages are reproduced at original size on heavy paper stock to provide fans, aficionados and collectors with the best possible reproductions.
Bonus material includes the splash page with Russell inking Gil Kane's pencils on an early Mowgli story for Marvel Comic s from Marvel Fanfare #10, 1983 and pencils for a page from the 2014 Neil Gaiman graphic novel, The Graveyard Book, plus cover art for Marvel Illustrated: Jungle Book #1, 2007.
It's interesting to see his early work, and the strong influence of Steranko's bold new style of storytelling shows up here, as well as Wally Wood's EC work. Some gorgeous work.
