Gil Kane’s The Amazing Spider-Man Artist’s Edition Coming in November!

July 14th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Spider-man is (deservedly) all the rage at the moment, and IDW are releasing this gem from the golden age of his webby history

IDW Publishing and Marvel Comics present their fourth Artist’s Edition together, GIL KANE’S THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: ARTIST’S EDITION.

Collecting Kane’s work on The Amazing Spider-Man issues 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, and 121, these are some of the most memorable and important Spider-Man stories of the era. Included in this volume is the infamous LSD storyline that ran without the Comics Code Authority, the six-arm storyline that also introduced Morbius, the Living Vampire, and the classic of classics, “The Night Gwen Stacy Died.”

“These Spider-Man stories by Gil Kane are the ones my generation grew up on,” said Special Projects Editor Scott Dunbier, “The ones we read and reread until they fell apart. Now we can look at them with a fresh eye and see these stories as we never have before.”

Gil Kane is regarded as one of the defining artists of the Silver Age of Comics, a sequential storyteller of the finest order. Highlights of his 50-plus year career include co-creating the Silver Age Green Lantern and Atom, the groundbreaking His Name is… Savage and Blackmark… plus, of course, his Amazing run on Spider-Man!

What is an Artist’s Edition? Artist’s Editions are printed the same size as the 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.

GIL KANE’S THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: ARTIST’S EDITION HC (216 pages, B&W, $125) will be in stores November 21st, 2012.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
