The Art of Molly Crabapple Vol 2

The Art of Molly Crabapple, Vol. 2: Devil in the Details
Click here for a preview!

N/A (w) • Molly Crabapple (a) • Molly Crabapple (c)
Fine artist, illustrator, and comics creator Molly Crabapple captures the absurdity of modern life in intricate, theatrical detail in her fine art work, drawing inspiration from politics, polite (and not-so-polite) society, and hundreds of years of literature. Her work is burlesque-inspired in the broadest definition of the word—deftly satirizing the powerful with adorably sinister animals, steampunk-tinged machinery, and of course, beautiful girls.

But it's not all fantastical—when Occupy Wall Street broke out, Molly was there, capturing the immediacy of the revolutionary feeling in pen and ink. In a new 48-page book from IDW, you can get Molly's art in gorgeous full-color, work that's decorated glamorous nightclubs, museums and galleries, and protest signs and occupied spaces around the country.
TPB • FC • $12.99 • 48 pages • 8.5” x 11” • ISBN 978-1-61377-273-7

Neal Adams’ Thrill Kill: Artist’s Edition Portfolio
Neal Adams (w & a)
Neal Adams redefined the look of comics in the 1970s. His groundbreaking dynamic storytelling, coupled with a sense of realism that was never before seen in mainstream comics, has made Adams one of the most influential artists of the last 50 years. He was responsible for what many consider to be the definitive version of Batman, as well as being the co-creator of one of the Caped Crusader’s greatest villains: Ras Al Ghul. He has produced near legendary runs on Green Lantern, Deadman (in Strange Adventures), the Avengers, the X-Men and many more.

Now IDW is pleased to present one of Neal's outstanding stories in the Artist's Edition Portfolio format. Each page scanned from the original art to match in exacting terms the look and feel of his original art.
