Jim Starlin

THE ART OF JIM STARLIN A life in Words and Pictures
Recommended. Jim Starlin's creations Thanos, Gamora and Drax the Destroyer occupy prominent roles in Marvel's cinematic universe. The "father of the cosmic soap opera," Jim Starlin's name is synonymous with the larger-than-life epic, which is why AfterShock is proud to bring back into print this epic 328-page retrospective on the career of one of the most popular and prolific comic book artists of the last 40 years! Covering everything from his humble beginnings to his rise as one of the industry's top creative talents, this oversized volume includes glimpses into Starlin's files and sketchbooks, as well as images of his personal favorites with insights into his life and creative process.

Collects #1-6, 1991. The Definitive Thanos Story. By Jim Starlin. Art by George Perez and Ron Lim. For the Dark Titan, Thanos, the Infinity Gauntlet was the Holy Grail -- the ultimate prize to be coveted above all else. With it came omnipotence: the absolute control of all aspects of time, space, power, reality, mind and soul. But his gaining of supreme power meant the beginning of a black nightmare for the entire universe. Now, on the edge of Armageddon and led by the mysterious Adam Warlock, Earth's super heroes join in a desperate attempt to thwart this nihilistic god's insane plunge into galactic self-destruction.

With Starlin's own very personal introduction, acknowledging his debt to Neal Adams! Recommended. Jim Starlin was one of the driving creative forces at Marvel in the 1970s and '80s.

Eliza Ivanova

RAW MATERIAL v.1 By Eliza Ivanova Hardcover Signed
Signed! Highly Recommended. By Eliza Ivanova. We previously handled a sketchbook with the same name, which was an intro to the far greater selection of work here. A carefully curated selection of drawings from the last 5 years, while Eliza was also working in the film industry as an animator at Pixar.

Neil Gaiman & Charles Vess

The illustrated story the film was based on. Our Highest Recommendation. By Neil Gaiman. Art by Charles Vess. It is here in Wall that young Tristran Thorn loses his heart to the town beauty--a woman as cold and distant as the star she and Tristran see fall from the sky on a crisp October evening. To gain the hand of his beloved, Tristran rashly vows to fetch the fallen star and embarks upon a lover's quest that will carry him over the ancient wall and into a world beyond his wildest imagings...a world of witches and demons, of a star-become-human, of true love. Bonus: 38 pages including six all-new works by Vess, and an image from a proposed sequel! DC Vertigo, 2019...More.

This bizarre German fantasy magazine is acknowledged as a predecessor of Weird Tales, collecting outré stories and art.
