SDCC 2012 – Mark Schultz’s Xenozoic Tales to be collected in Artist’s Edition Format
Xenozoic Tales by Mark Schultz is being released as an “Artist’s Edition” by IDW Publishing.
Set in a post-apocalyptic future, one now populated by dinosaurs and other incredible beasts, mankind is desperately trying to reclaim what was once theirs. Starring ace mechanic Jack Tenrec and the lovely and brilliant scientist Hannah Dundee, Xenozoic Tales is a rollicking story filled with high adventure and nail-biting suspense.
A student of classic comic strip and comic book artists, Schultz’s influences include Al Williamson, Wally Wood and others, but, like all great artist’s, evolved into his own, unique self.
Mark Schultz’s Xenozoic Tales: Artist’s Edition is planned for a June 2013 release and will feature the last six issues. The book will measure 14” x 20,” will be approximately 144 pages, and boast a stunning cover gallery.
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.
