Those familiar with Ed Piskor's work ethic know that he will always go the extra mile to make sure everything possible is done with whatever particular project he is working on. Once the format is decided upon, he sizes it up and then proceeds to squeeze out all the potential it has to offer. Now, given his first crack at the relatively new "Artist's Edition" format popularized by IDW, Mr. Piskor wants to show that more is posssible with this approach to showcasing the comic artist's work than has been heretofore attempted. Here's his own words to give you an idea of his approach to this work, which is a massive 12.75" x 19.75" edition that runs 180 pages primarily made up of high resolution, full color scans of his original, black & white artwork.
"Studio Editions that are constructed directly from an artist’s original artwork have been the greatest new idea in comics the past ten years, and I had to jump at the chance to have my very own. As a newer cartoonist in comparison to living legends like Jaime Hernandez and Charles Burns, there's still lots of evidence of discovery on my pages—lots of figuring things out, brush strokes, white-out, and general process, which is my favorite part of these kinds of editions. And I felt like it would add value to include some annotated chatter about each page as well. Readers are going to dig looking at this stuff in a different context."
