The highly anticipated Dave Gibbons Watchmen: Artifact Edition, produced in partnership with DC Entertainment, will make its debut at Comic-Con International Preview night on July 23, 2014. Dave Gibbons himself will be on hand as IDW’s special guest, signing at the publisher’s booth (#2643) on all five days of the convention.

Weighing in at 152 pages and measuring 12 x 17 inches, the Dave Gibbons Watchmen: Artifact Edition features 100 story-page scans (all shot from the original art) and many extras: covers, portfolio plates, color guides, roughs, early design images and more.

Additionally, IDW is hosting an exclusive event: An Evening With Dave Gibbons on Thursday night, July 24th. Dave Gibbons will be on hand to enjoy a fine meal with in a private dining room in downtown San Diego. Each attendee will receive an extremely limited version of the Watchmen Artifact Edition. Only 25 copies will be available. Each will feature a unique cover as well as a bound-in commemorative signature plate. Gibbons will sign the books at the dinner and do a small head sketch in each. A photographer will be on hand to document the event.

“I’m thrilled and flattered that IDW have produced this book of my Watchmen art” said Gibbons, “and I’m greatly looking forward to being on hand to launch it at San Diego.”

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….
