born again Coming Attractions: IDW's David Mazzucchelli's Daredevil Born Again: Artist's Edition

I discovered this while searching for something else, and knew that others would experience their own Stimpy Squeel (“Oh JOY!) upon seeing this!

These editions sell out very quickly, and IDW doesn’t reprint them (WHY NOT?), so sell some blood, dig into those couch cushions, or use that tax rebate you’re gonna get when you finally file your tax return for 2011!

Here’s the text from the IDW Store, which can be accessed by clicking…

Quick Overview

This item is available for PRE-ORDER ONLY. It will not ship until it becomes available in late June 2012.

IDW proudly presents DAVID MAZZUCCHELLI’S DAREDEVIL BORN AGAIN: ARTIST’S EDITION, collecting all seven issues of the Born Again saga in its entirety. Considered by many to be the definitive Daredevil story, written by Frank Miller and drawn by David Mazzucchelli, this epic tale represents two unparalleled creators at the peak of their story-telling powers.

Each page has been personally scanned by David Mazzucchelli from his own original art at the same size he drew it, and in color (to insure the best possible reproduction). This Artist’s Edition measures 12 x 17 inches and is an extra-long 200 pages. Each book is shipped in a custom cardboard box for maximum protection. Available in June,

Brought to you by the same team responsible for the Eisner Award-winning Dave Stevens’ The Rocketeer: The Artist’s Edition, as well as Wally Wood’s EC Stories: Artist’s Edition.

WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION?

AN ARTIST’S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.

While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

    Is it safe to assume that Miller and Mazzucchelli will be getting a healthy chunk of the profits?

  2. I don’t understand? This news has been out there for a couple months. And they ARE going back to press with the Romita and Wood editions, which I’m glad to hear since the Wood one initially sold out and my order didn’t get filled.

  3. I’ve already pre-ordered a copy through my local comics store. I literally shit in my pants when I heard about this one.

  4. They did reprint the last two.

  5. IDW is an evil, evil company. I was steadfastly avoiding their Artist Editions, until…THIS. Dammit, I’m going to have to buy it. With the Alex Toth books, the Doug Wildey Rio book coming out, plus the multitude of other things they put out, IDW is EVIL!

  6. Torsten Adair says:

    Can someone point me to announcement from IDW regarding the second editions? I get their PR and do not recall seeing that.

    Also, has anyone else reported on this particular title? Or is IDW waiting for it to ship before announcing ir.e.m.

    Yup… When I searched the web this morning, I found it listed in the May solicitations, buried halfway down the page. (So I guess it’s not as good as Star Trek or G.I. Joe?)

    IDW doesn’t post pages for specific titles on their website (except for the store, and some of the imprints). Which makes it difficult to link to when I’m doing my Coming Attractions posts.

    What’s most interesting about these editions… there’s a slim margin on these titles. They were meant to be sold only via IDW (website, conventions) but then were offered to comics shops. Nothing available to the book trade.

  9. Justin H. says:

    This isn’t new news, but it certainly is good news. Finally broke down and ordered one of these bad boys-

  10. “Coming Attractions” often features books that have long since been announce. A lot of the time the book are already on the shelves…

  11. Steve says:

    Gotta have this one.

  12. I had heard that there was going to be a SDCC exclusive but, rather than wait to see if that news developed, I just ordered the regular version available directly from IDW’s site. That and the Wally Wood reprint. I think I’m going to go through their site for future purchases on these rather than through comic shops and risk the order not being filled.

  13. timothycat says:

    I’ve started using TFAW for these as they have a discount and post them promptly after the solicit. IDW takes awhile to put them into the store, the Spirit one that’s due in April still isn’t on the IDW store site.
