Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Just wanted to quickly note a few major Kirby publications set for next year.
Titan’s S&K LIBRARY series continues next year with the HORROR volume, which should have all the Kirby drawn material from BLACK MAGIC and STRANGE WORLD OF YOUR DREAMS from 1950 to 1954.
And IDW is publishing an “Artist’s Edition” of Kirby’s NEW GODS. That’ll be a 12″x17″ hardcover reprinting numbers 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of the series (the first inked by Vince Colletta, the rest by Mike Royer) as facsimiles of the original artwork. It’ll be especially interesting to see #7, “The Pact”, in this form, since every reprint DC has ever done of it has had several of the sound effects altered from the original printing (apparently for a language that uses upsidedown exclamation marks and doesn’t use the letter “w” much). Anyway, I don’t think mainstream booksellers get these speciality publications, so if you want it you’ll probably have to order it from a comic shop (order code DEC130371) or direct from IDW when they add it to their on-line store.
