IDW Publishing continues to celebrate Jack Kirby’s centennial birthday with a brand new artist’s edition. Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four World’s Greatest Artist’s Edition will feature Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s epic run and what some consider the greatest run in comic book history. And it will all be collected in a solid case.
Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four World’s Greatest Artist’s Edition will run 168 pages and measures 15″ x 22″. That’s the same size as Kirby’s original art!
This edition will collect four complete “twice-up” stories including Issue #33 (“Side-by-Side With the Sub Mariner”), #45 (“Among Us Hide…the Inhumans!”), #47 (“Beware the Hidden Land!”), and #60 (“The Peril and the Power!”). The last issue is the final chapter of the classic storyline where Dr. Doom steals the Silver Surfer’s board!
“People have literally begged for an oversized Kirby Fantastic Four book,” said Artist’s Edition Editor, Scott Dunbier. “This volume will truly live up to the title WORLD’S GREATEST Artist’s Edition!”
“Kirby’s artistic style will always be synonymous with the Fantastic Four,” said Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing, David Gabriel. “It’s an honor to continue working with IDW to celebrate Jack’s artwork with Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four World’s Greatest Artist’s Edition.”
Along with these four classic stories, it will also feature a stunning Kirby gallery of art with 22 Kirby Fantastic Four Covers and an assortment of pin-ups, splashes, and interior pages from classic issues from all the way back to Fantastic Four #3.
Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four World’s Greatest Artist’s Edition will be available this July!
