Wally Wood's EC Stories Artisan Edition

I got the opportunity to redesign the Wally Wood's Artist's Edition. Well, kind of. IDW came out with a smaller more affordable version of the book. This gave me a chance to go back and look at how I designed the oversized version and decide what worked and what had to be redesigned. The obvious thing is that I'm working with a smaller format. It's best in that case, to simplify. Because I looked at it as a companion piece to the Artist's Edition, I used similar images, but just cropped them and gave them a different feeling on the page. I'm pretty sure IDW has more plan for Artisan Editions, so this will cause me to reevaluate a lot of the work I've done... and perhaps make improvements??!!


  1. So excited to see one of my absolute favorite Artist's Editions being made into an Artisan Edition! Can you lobby for "The Rocketeer" and "Xenozoic Tales", Randy?

  2. I would love the opportunity to take another run at both of those books. I'll mention it to Scott!
