Eisner Winner Craig Yoe To Debut Four Books at San Diego Comic-Con 2011

Official Press Release

Eisner Winner Craig Yoe To Debut Four Books at San Diego Comic-Con 2011

San Diego, CA (July 13, 2011)—Adding to the growing excitement for San Diego Comic-Con 2011, author/designer Craig Yoe and IDW Publishing today announced the debut four beautiful coffee table hardcover books at the year’s convention, following close on the heels of other major books by Yoe.

[Amazing 3D Comics]AMAZING 3-D COMICS (IDW) is a stunning retrospective on these unique comics, featuring a special multi-layered lenticular cover by Joe Kubert, the co-inventor of 3-D comics. The book opens with a fascinating introduction by Kubert. This is followed by Yoe’s revealing forward, leading directly into the book’s detailing of the beginnings of the 3-D comics of the 1950s, and drawing parallels to today’s hot 3-D movies. Comic publishers of the 1950s jumped on the 3-D wagon, fortunes were made and lost, even causing one publisher to take his own life. AMAZING 3-D COMICS boasts incredible 3-D art by Jack Kirby, Alex Toth, Bob Powell, Al Jaffe, Milt Stein, and many more artists, with over twenty stories, all in eye-popping 3-D. To ensure readers enjoy this book to the fullest, AMAZING 3-D COMICS comes with free, custom 3-D glasses, and also includes a 3-D photo of Kubert and Yoe on the back cover.

[The Big Book of Carlo Bark's Barney Bear Cover]THE BIG BOOK OF CARL BARKS’ BARNEY BEAR (IDW) collects for the first time in color and English all the Barney Bear and Benny Burro team-up stories by comics’ genius Carl Barks. While stories of Barks’ Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck are known and loved around the world, the adventures of the animation film stars Barney Bear and Benny Burro have been often overlooked. At last, THE BIG BOOK OF CARL BARKS’ BARNEY BEAR offers a deluxe, hardcover archiving of this warm and hilarious , “lost” alternate world. And the book has a cover and an introduction by Jeff Smith of Bone fame, himself a big Barks fan. Added Yoe, “This volume is sure to delight Carl Bark’s legions of fans, young and old alike!”

[Archie's Madhouse Cover]ARCHIE’S MADHOUSE (IDW) collects the greatest stories from the swinging 1960’s title. MADHOUSE is crammed-full of searing satire, silly surrealism, sick superheroes, mirthful monsters, and, of course, tantalizing teenage girls as only the Archie artists can draw them!  Artists include powerhouses like Dan DeCarlo, Harry Lucey, Chic Stone, Bob White… and Wally Wood! Said Yoe, “I don’t think any book I’ve ever done offers more fun that this material from Archie artists at their zaniest! Archie, satire fans and Good Girl Art fans are gonna go ape!”

[Krazy Kat and the Art of George Herriman Cover]KRAZY KAT AND THE ART OF GEORGE HERRIMAN (Abrams ComicArts) unearths an incredible array of countless unpublished and ultra-rare paintings, drawings, strips, photos, animation-related art, essays, and ephemera of the comics greatest master, George Herriman. Starting with a special appreciation by Bill Watterson, this beautiful large format book astounds page after page. Patrick McDonnell of Mutts exclaimed, “This book is a treasure-trove of classic Kat art and Kat curiosities. Like a brick out of nowhere, you’ll be knocked out by its many surprises.”

[Archie Celebration Cover]Other recent books by Craig Yoe and the IDW imprint, Yoe! Books, include: ARCHIE: A CELEBRATION OF AMERICA’S FAVORITE TEENAGERS, and POPEYE: THE GREAT COMIC BOOK TALES BY BOB SAGENDORF, featuring an introduction by Jerry Beck.

Yoe concluded, “I’m proud and excited about this cornucopia of comics books. A lot of wonderful stories and incredible art are between the covers, which I’m positive will delight Comic-Con going fans of great cartoonists!”
