Thanks for your kind words, Harry.
If this project is becoming a reality is in part thanks to you and your Yahoo Group Digitizing Comics, because it showed me the path to follow.
You also provided me some scans of the printed sundays, which it was essential for me to realize that I could embody this project. And your support was/is also very welcome!
BTW, the second book is scheduled to 2009, and the third to 2010. I’m doing this project combined with my regular workload, so its progress is slow. Anyway, I use all this time to gather more stuff for the extras section of the third book, like 10 original color guides of the sundays strips done by Kirby himself.
My dream would be that, once all the books are finished, this edition would be published internationaly in collaboration with the Kirby Museum and Greg Theakston, and this would include USA. I wish Marvel could publish it via his label Icon! Anyway, there’s lots of work till then, so let’s go step-by-step… You’ll learn about the progress of the book in my blog. Thanks for your interest!
How about that, I have the same dream you have! That is to have your work on Sky Masters published in English. Although I am not sure why Marvel would have to be involved. No reason why they should not be either.
I thought about Marvel because they have the Icon label which allows to keep the copyright to the artist, and also, the book would have a greater impact with them rather than with a small publisher like Pure Imagination.
It also looks like there’s a good relationship with Marvel and the Kirby Estate, after Marvel publishing Kirby’s Galactic Bounty Hunters and The Lost FF story.
Anyway, this is only my vision from outside. Since all of this should be done coordinated with Greg and the Kirby Estate, probably they could provide more realistic proposals from their experience.
But since the ultimate goal is to divulgue this masterworks as much as possible, I think that Marvel could be more useful than PI or TwoMorrows.
Whatever happened to this project? Did it get cancelled? I very much was looking forward to the remastered Sky Masters in English.
I am a little puzzled by your question. The Sky Masters post was about the Spanish language version, not an English one. So far two volumes of the Spanish volumes have come out but I have no idea if or when the last one would come out. Ferran did a fantastic restoration job. Much better than any that preceeded his version in any language. I would dearly love to see an English version of his work.
I’d dearly would love to see this version in english too, which is why I asked. And the only reason why I asked is because in the comments Ferran himself said he’d like to see it released internationally.
Although, given the quality of the restoration from what I’ve seen, I’d try and read it with my broken Spanish if I have to because it is leaps and bounds so much better than the copy that I have that was released in the 90s.
