San Diego, CA (September 2, 2014) – Considered by many to be one of the pinnacles of Silver Age comic book artwork, John Buscema’s innovative work on Marvel’s Silver Surfer will finally be presented in the premiere Artist’s Edition format. Collecting two over-sized complete issues from the acclaimed original run written by Stan Lee, along with a treasure-trove of bonus material, this instant classic will add to IDW’s already expansive line of Marvel Comics collections in the Eisner Award-winning Artist’s Edition format.
 
Scanned at the highest possible quality, John Buscema’s Silver Surfer: Artist’s Edition collects issue #5, #6 and #8 of Silver Surfer, both double-sized in length. This Artist’s Edition will also collect yet-to-be revealed additional stories from the vast archive of Buscema’s work along with bonus Silver Surfermaterial.
 
“Lee and Buscema’s Silver Surfer is one of Marvel’s greatest milestones and it is simply stunning in its rarely seen original format,” said IDW’s President, Greg Goldstein.
 
An essential component of The House of Ideas, Buscema’s talented hand graced the pages of the most iconic characters for over four decades working on The Avengers, Thor, The Fantastic Four, and The Amazing Spider-Man just to name a few. Launched by Lee and Buscema in 1968, the Silver Surfer’s first solo-series ran for 18 issues, captivating readers and setting the bar incomparably high.
 
IDW is honored to publish this esteemed collection with the help of Marvel Comics and the Buscema family.
 
The 12” x 17” collection will be releasing this October, just in time for the holidays. Look for more information and Artist’s Edition announcements in the coming months!
 
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 and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
