"Marvel Comics' wonderful output of stories has been an extraordinary playground for me to create Artist's Editions in," says Dunbier. "Working with our friends at Marvel will allow us to continue doing books with old favorites like Walter Simonson and John Romita, and focus on a bunch of artists that are brand-new to the format. I think people will be as excited as I am as we roll out the incredible books we have planned in the years to come!"

IDW's Artist's Editions are designed to present a high-quality, authentic original comic art experience. Each oversized hardcover contains pages from beloved comic book runs scanned in high resolution from storyboards belonging to the original artist. Previous editions have presented the work of legendary artists like Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, John Buscema, Dave Stevens, and many others in this manner, which allows the most passionate fans of comic book art to see every creative nuance that went into creating the original art. Each page is printed the same size as it was drawn, and the paper stock is as close to the original artboard as possible. IDW's Artisan Editions collects the contents but in a smaller, less costly paperback format.
