For those who love dramatic inks and original pages, IDW has the perfect addition for your shelf.

IDW’s Artist’s and Artisan Editions collect some of the most iconic runs by popular artists including Mike Mignola, Todd McFarlane, and Jim Lee, among so many more legendary names. These editions preserve the unique nuances of the original art via detailed scans. Each page features blue pencils, ink gradients, corrections, production notes, etc–effectively putting you in the studio with your favorite illustrator.
