Charles Schulz’s Peanuts: Artist’s Edition HC—SPOTLIGHT
Charles Schulz (w & a & c)
Charles Schulz's Peanuts debuted as what is arguably the most important comic strip of all time in 1950. Peanuts transcended the medium, presenting complex issues and moral dilemmas in the space of four panels, while maintaining a bitingly funny sense of humor. Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, Linus, Schroeder, kite eating tree, the Great Pumpkin, and, of course, Snoopy… all are embedded in our psyches. Now, for the first time, Schulz's classic creation will be seen in a way as close as possible to the original art created by the artist himself—in IDW's multi-award-winning Artist's Edition format, with each strip being carefully scanned and reproduced. Note: Because of the enormous size Charles Schulz worked, these originals will be reduced in size from the original art.
HC • BW • $75.00 net discount item • 144 Pages • 19” x 10” • ISBN: 978-1-61377-952-1
Bullet points:
• What is an Artist’s Edition?
• AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.
• While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

Star Slammers: Re-mastered! #1
Walter Simonson (w & a & c)
Walter Simonson can honestly be described as a living legend.

Highlights include The Fantastic Four, Batman, Orion, Elric, and his groundbreaking run on The Mighty Thor.
But before all of these, there was Star Slammers, a series first devised by Simonson during his college days. The Slammers would later be resurrected as a Marvel Graphic Novel, and then a mini-series. Simonson describes it thus: Once upon a time, there was a race of men who could out-shoot, out-fight, and out-kill anybody. They were paid fabulous sums to act as mercenaries. The practice became so lucrative, they decided to go into business. They became the most successful businessmen in history, and they called themselves…The Star Slammers!
