An oversized hardcover art book. It reproduces all of the original artwork that was produced for a three-issue comic series written by Simon Reed, penciled and inked by Mike Ploog (as one set of pages) and painted by Simon Bisley (as a separate set). Each page is published at full size.
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 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 a lot of energy into each other’s work. Mike’s composition and drawing is spot on, and Simon’s work compliments 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 out there, not since the days of Frank Chiaramonte, laying down wonderful inks to Mike Ploog’s pencils, has another artist’s work complemented Mike’s drawings as well as Simon Bisley’s.
The book is printed on only the highest quality paper so that the reproductions will be as close as possible to the original art.
