I don’t really pay that much attention to upcoming releases these days, so this one slipped by me, but I’d be remiss in not mentioning it here. Scheduled for release in May, TwoMorrows has DESTROYER DUCK GRAPHITE EDITION, a reprint of the five issues of the series Jack Kirby and Steve Gerber created from 1982 to 1983, initially as a one-shot to finance Gerber’s litigation with Marvel over Howard The Duck.
This edition will feature reproductions of Kirby’s original art and new lettering. The original series was inked by Alfredo Alcala, and looks good (certainly would be far down on my list of Kirby work needing to have the inking removed), but it’ll be interesting to see it in the original form, and among the extra features will be a look at Alcala’s inking compared to the pencils. Also samples of Gerber’s scripts and features by Mark Evanier and Buzz Dixon.
