David Mazzucchelli´s Born Again: Artist´s edition.

Here we have a very interesting item: the Artist´s Edition of Daredevil: Born Again. We are talking about the masterpiece by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli.

These Artist´s Editions are published by IDW and this is what they say about it:

“”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.””

And this is what we got here. Amazing reproductions of the Born Again art, scanned by Mazzucchelli himself. The hard cover comes in a brown box, so it is well protected and safe.

Inside, in very thick paper we can find all the issues of the Born Again saga and all the covers for the series and paperbacks. Also sketches and an introduction by Mazzucchelli. We even have some vellum pages! Of course the art is gorgeous.

It is really great to see thess big pages up close, it is like having the original art in your hands mistakes, corrections and ink stains included. Production values are really high.

The book is not cheap, 125 bucks, but is a fair price for what you are getting. Pity I missed the Walter Simonson´s Thor.

Fortunately I got another similar Simonson item, but that is for next week.
