Neal Adams Thrill Kill Artist's Edition PortfolioNeal 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.
BW • $29.99 • 8 prints • 12” x 18”



 

Nevsky Hero of the PeopleNevsky: Hero of the People

Click here for a preview!

Ben McCool (w) • Mario Guevara (a & c)
Written by Ben McCool (Memoir, Pigs) with art by rising star Mario Guevara (Solomon Kane, Victorian Undead), this full-length graphic novel is a stunning re-imagination of Sergei Eisenstein's famed film, Alexander Nevsky (1938). Alexander Nevsky is a central figure in Russian history, having lived during one of Russia's darkest periods--the invasion of the Teutonic Knights. Alexander Nevsky helped establish the Russian nation by defeating the Teutonic Knights, invaders from the last vestiges of the Holy Roman Empire, with an army comprised of ordinary citizens who were poorly-equipped soldiers but fought for their freedom. This ragtag band, against overwhelming odds,  defeated the invaders in an epic battle on the frozen lake Peipus--a spectacular achievement that is still celebrated in Russia to this day. In 1938 the great Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein, much acclaimed for his masterful interpretation as seen in "Battleship Potemkin" (1925) and "Ivan the Terrible" (1944), brought the story of Alexander Nevsky to life on the silver screen in an innovative and brilliant way, by developing new film techniques that remain in use almost 100 years later by some of the greatest directors of our time. Now, following in the steps of Eisenstein, IDW is proud to present one of the most compelling historical graphic novels ever produced--one that is as relevant today as it was at any time in history!
HC  FC  $24.99  128 pages  ISBN 978-1-61377-181-5

Bullet points:
• A timeless story of the battle for freedom and patriotism gets retold in a vibrant new form with Nevsky, an original graphic novel adaptation of Sergei Eisenstein's classic film, Alexander Nevsky (1938).
• From rising stars Ben McCool (Memoir, Pigs) and Mario Guevara (Solomon Kane, Victorian Undead)!
