Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the outpouring of human misery has drawn demons like sharks to a bloodbath. What better time for Daimon Hellstrom – a.k.a. the Son of Satan – to pay a visit? It starts with the doctor who delivers a baby that vanishes into the night. A doctor who is devoured by demons wearing New Orleans P.D. badges. Demons who work for someone – or something – -that’s descended on the Big Easy and doesn’t give a damn who Hellstorm or his father is. Something that’s harvesting body parts in a furious race toward unspeakable purposes. This is the Son of Satan as you’ve never seen him before, brought to you by acclaimed novelist Alexander Irvine (The Narrows), with searing art by Russell Braun (Animal Man) and Klaus Janson.

Preview: Dave Cockrum X-Men Artifact Edition

Dave Cockrum X-Men Artifact Edition

(W) Chris Claremont (A/CA) Dave Cockrum
In Shops: Jun 24, 2020
SRP: $125.00

By 1975 the X-Men had been relegated to reprint status for a number of years, and the title was not a safe bet to become one of the most popular comic book franchises of all time-but with the launch that year of GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1, by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum, that is precisely what happened! Dave Cockrum was the artist and architect of this newly revamped team, and he co-created Storm, Colossus, and, perhaps most notably, Nightcrawler. After the runaway success of Giant Size X-Men #1, the title began producing all-new stories with X-Men #94… and the rest is the stuff comic book dreams are made of!

This Artifact Edition contains more than 100 pages from Cockrum’s initial run on X-Men, as well as some pages when the artist returned later for a second run on the characters several years later. As with all Artist’s Edition style books from IDW Publishing (which have so far won six Eisner Awards), the pages presented were all scanned from Cockrum’s actual original art and are printed at the same size they were drawn, mimicking the look and feel of the artist’s hand-drawn work. As an added bonus, there is a gallery section featuring covers, sketches, and a few surprises-this is an art book MADE for fans of Dave Cockrum’s X-Men art!

Jim Lee’s X-Men Gets an Artist’s Edition

Jim Lee’s X-Men Artist’s Edition

In October, IDW Publishing will celebrate the dynamic artwork of industry icon Jim Lee with the addition of Jim Lee’s X-Men Artist’s Edition to its multiple Eisner Award-winning AE line.

Nearly 30 years ago, Jim Lee joined writer Chris Claremont and inker Scott Williams to launch Marvel’s all-new, all-different X-Men – the classic 1990s “Blue Team” that defined the look and attitude of the X-Men brand for a generation. The impact his dynamic artwork has had on the comics industry – on his legions of fans and the artists who have been inspired by and emulated him – is truly immeasurable. In a career filled with highlights, his work on X-Men is arguably his most popular and enduring.

This Artist’s Edition will include the entire complete story from the bestselling comic book of the modern era, X-Men #1. Additionally, this book will include scans of gorgeous original artwork from some of Lee’s best and most iconic issues – covers, splashes, pin-ups, and interior pages. Each page has been meticulously scanned from Lee’s original art for this book, affording the reader insight into his creative process never before available outside of original art collectors.

As with all Artist’s Editions, each gorgeous page will be reproduced from scans of the original art and printed at the same size they were drawn, with all the distinctive creative nuances that make original art unique – a perfect representation of the work in its original form.

The Dark Phoenix Rises in Marvel’s 40th Anniversary Variants

Forty years ago, the legendary creative team of Chris Claremont and John Byrne set a new standard for comic book stories with the Dark Phoenix Saga. Both heartbreaking and thrilling, the story found Jean Grey corrupted by the limitless power she yields as Phoenix. Beginning in UNCANNY X-MEN #128 and escalating until its dramatic conclusion in UNCANNY X-MEN #137, readers at the time were awestruck as Jean Grey went from heart of the X-Men to their most formidable villain. The saga was an instant classic and cemented the X-Men as one of Marvel Comics’ most successful franchises.

Since then, the Dark Phoenix Saga has been revisited in various stories, adapted to both television and film, and is considered a masterpiece of the comic book medium. Now, as Dawn of X launches and the X-Men venture into an exciting new era, the franchise will be honoring the past with Dark Phoenix 40th Anniversary Variant covers! From Jean Grey’s psychic battle with Emma Frost to the X-Men’s fateful clash with the Shi’ar Imperial Guard on the moon, each cover will see a pivotal moment in the event brought to new life by today’s top artists.
