IDW Announces A Todd McFarlane ‘Spider-Man Artists Edition’

by Olly MacNamee

Todd McFarlane is the latest artist to get his very own Artist’s Edition high-end hardback from IDW Publishing, reproducing his original art pages from his run on The Amazing Spider-Man (written by David Michelinie) and his subsequent hit-making Spider-Man comic book series too. All-in-all nearly 100 pages of original art will be reproduced in this new book.

“The impact that McFarlane had on the comics industry was like a thunderbolt striking the art form, and his work continues to resonate to this day with fans the world over.” –  Scott Dunbier, IDW’s Director of Special Projects and award-winning originator of the Artist’s Edition format.

“Classic villains like the Green Goblin, Hobgoblin, Sandman, the Vulture, Morbius, and the Lizard all make appearances in this Artist’s Edition, as do the Hulk, Wolverine, and the ever-delightful Mary Jane Watson-Parker. Plus, one of the most infamous characters introduced in that era—the villainous Venom, co-created by McFarlane—takes the spotlight in a number of pages, including his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #299!”

Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man Artist’s Edition is available for pre-order via booksellers and comic book specialty retailers. And coming out this September from IDW Publishing.
