Media Release — Editor Eric Nolen-Weathington has two new MODERN MASTERS volumes available!
First is MARK BUCKINGHAM (Volume 22), which ships next week! He has quietly built up one of the most impressive resumés in the comic book industry. From Miracleman, to his work on Sandman, Death, Peter Parker: Spider-Man, and now Fables (recently optioned for an ABC TV series), he has continued to entertain and amaze with a style that is both charming and sophisticated. This book features a career-spanning interview with the artist, a discussion of his creative process, and reams of rare and unseen art, including a large gallery of commissioned work, and 8 pages of full color work! It’s $14.95 retail (but you save 15% when you order online).
Next is GUY DAVIS (Volume 24), which just shipped today! He’s the master of the macabre, the mysterious… the just plain creepy. But underlying the eerie quality of his artwork is a remarkable sense of storytelling. From his breakthrough hit, Baker Street, to the pulp noir Sandman Mystery Theater, to his current work on the Hellboy spin-off series, B.P.R.D., Davis has shown time and again that he is one of the best in the business. This book features a career-spanning interview with the artist, a discussion of his creative process, and reams of rare and unseen art, including a large gallery of commissioned pieces, and 8 pages of full color work. It’s $15.95 retail (but you save 15% when you order online).
I also wanted to give you an update on our edition on DARWYN COOKE (Volume 23). Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts with Darwyn, we’ve been unable to complete the book as planned, so we’re having to reschedule it. We hope to have a new release date for the book shortly, so please stay tuned to our website, and thanks for your patience. If you’ve preordered the book from us and would prefer to apply your payment toward another TwoMorrows publication (including one of the above volumes), or get a refund, please reply to this message and let me know.
Next up? JEFF SMITH (Volume 25), which ships this summer. And there’s more great volumes coming after that, so stay tuned!
To order any of these books, just go to www.twomorrows.com where you’ll find them listed on the home page for ordering. (If you’ve already pre-ordered them, know that the Guy Davis volume just went in the mail, and the Mark Buckingham volume should be mailed within the next 7-10 days.) And as always, thanks for supporting the Modern Masters series!
