March 17th, 2012 by Marc Comments

This July, IDW Publishing will bring you the best of the best with Dave Stevens’ Covers & Stories, a collection of renowned comic artist Dave Stevens’ remarkable work. This volume will showcase all the non-Rocketeer covers by Stevens, many scanned from the original art. Additionally, there will be roughs accompanying many of the covers, offering a rare insight into the artist’s creative process. Besides covers, all of Stevens’s highly sought-after short stories will be printed, as well as some unfinished gems.

Although best known for his work on The Rocketeer, Stevens was also one of the most accomplished and skilled comic book artists in comics. His first professional comic work began with inking Russ Manning’s pencils for the Tarzan newspaper comic strip. Stevens later became the first to win Comic-Con International’s Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award in 1982.

Dave Stevens: Covers & Stories will provide all of Stevens’s non-Rocketeer comic work, including incomplete and unpublished stories. These art works will be presented in an 8” x 12” hardcover book printed in classic black and white.

DAVE STEVENS: STORIES & COVERS ($49.99, 272 pages; 8” x12”; hardcover; black and white) will be available in July 2012. ISBN 978-1-61377-269-0.

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….
