  3. Frank R. Paul: The Father of Science Fiction Illustration

    Frank R. Paul: The Father of Science Fiction Illustration

    $29.99

    Frank R. Paul is almost universally recognized as the "Father of Science Fiction Illustration," and rightly so, since his work has influenced and inspired generations of artists and visionaries over the past eighty years. From Flash Gordon to Luke Skywalker, Paul's presence is still being felt in the twenty-first century. Jerry Weist, noted Science Fiction historian, scholar, and founding editor of the prestigious EC comic fanzine Squa Tront, has turned his keen insight towards Paul, who envisioned a world of futuristic cities, space travel and alien life forms. These fantastic visions were realized in the pages of Amazing Stories and hundreds of other science fiction pulps and digest magazines. Weist, who authored Ray Bradbury: An Illustrated Life (in collaboration with Bradbury) has brought together informative text on Paul and a visual record of nearly every one of his incredible covers, as well as some of his very best, and rarely seen, pen and ink interior illustrations. This will be a visual feast for lovers of classic science fiction art. With an  Introduction by Vincent Di Fate, Hugo Award-winning science fiction illustrator. Learn More

  5. FELDSTEIN: The Mad Life and Fantastic Art of Al Feldstein!

    FELDSTEIN: The Mad Life and Fantastic Art of Al Feldstein!

    $49.99

    FELDSTEIN: The MAD Life and Fantastic Art of Al Feldstein! takes a long-overdue look at the entire remarkable career of this legendary artist, writer, and editor. Both a full biography and a coffee-table art book, we begin with the earliest surviving Feldstein artwork from the High School of Music and Art, present his very earliest comic-book work, and follow his development from the 1940s Victor Fox shop (including the titillating “headlight” comics Junior, Sunny, and Meet Corliss Archer). And we examine his highly visceral work for the classic E.C. comic book line. Along with rare and previously unpublished photographs, the book pictures every E.C. Feldstein comic book cover (many placed alongside the original artwork), presents several complete E.C. stories, plus nearly every splash page and house ad Feldstein did for E.C. We trace his thirty-year career as the editor of MAD, and present his post-retirement work as a “fine” artist, including his prize-winning Western canvases and his many commissioned paintings “revisiting” his classic cover images from the 1950s. We examine every aspect of Feldstein’s long career and fascinating personal life, not all of it sweetness and light. Learn More

  8. Art of Molly Crabapple, Vol. 2: Devil in the Details

    $12.99

    Fine artist, illustrator, and comics creator Molly Crabapple captures the absurdity of modern life in intricate, theatrical detail in her fine art work, drawing inspiration from politics, polite (and not-so-polite) society, and hundreds of years of literature. Her work is burlesque-inspired in the broadest definition of the word—deftly satirizing the powerful with adorably sinister animals, steampunk-tinged machinery, and of course, beautiful girls. But it's not all fantastical—when Occupy Wall Street broke out, Molly was there, capturing the immediacy of the revolutionary feeling in pen and ink. In a new 48-page book from IDW, you can get Molly's art in gorgeous full-color, work that's decorated glamorous nightclubs, museums and galleries, and protest signs and occupied spaces around the country.
