Ojito a las novedades de Dark Horse para el mes de agosto, que hay unos cuantos tebeos de lo más interesante: un libro con el arte de Tony Millionaire, un omnibus con el Ghost de Adam Hughes y Terry Dodson, y ¡el Frankenstein ilustrado por Bernie Wrightson! Una auténtica joya, y si no pregúntenle al Tio Berni... Éstas son sus características:

THE ART OF TONY MILLIONAIRE

Written and art by Tony Millionaire.

Prepare to set sail on a drunken fever-dream of dollies, apes, and exotic mysteries that once seen can never be UN-seen! The Art of Tony Millionaire collects illustrations, comics, stories, photographs, and anecdotes from the man once referred to as "Beefy McManus" by the late rock star, "Rocky Stardomes!"--the one and only Tony Millionaire! Thrill to never-before seen illustrations that have made women gasp and grown men gasp, too! Partake in the beautiful genius of the only cartoonist in the history of mankind to have won five Eisner Awards, three Harvey Awards and an Ignatz!

200 pages, $39.95, in stores on Oct. 22.

BERNIE WRIGHTSON'S FRANKENSTEIN

Written by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, art by Bernie Wrightson.

Few works by comic-book artists have earned the universal acclaim and reverence that Bernie Wrightson's illustrated version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein was met with upon its original release in 1983. Twenty-five years later, this magnificent pairing of art and literature is still considered to be one of the greatest achievements made by any artist in the field. Now, Wrightson and Dark Horse Books are collaborating on a beautiful new hardcover edition of the book, published in a larger 9" x 12" format intended to show off the exquisitely detailed line art of one of the greatest living artists in comics today. This book includes the complete text of the original ground-breaking novel, and the original forty-seven full-page illustrations that stunned the world with their monumental beauty and uniqueness.

240 pages, $29.95, in stores on Oct. 20.

GHOST OMNIBUS VOLUME 1

Written by Erik Luke, art by Adam Hughes, Terry Dodson, Scott Benefiel and Matt Haley, cover by Adam Hughes.

If you're already dead, you might as well make the best of it. Someone brutally murdered reporter Elisa Cameron, but back from the grave as the spectral avenger Ghost, Elisa intends to find out who killed her and why . . . and grab a double dose of .45-caliber retribution. But Ghost's journey to the truth follows a dark, twisted path, and the revelations she unearths may lead not to redemption, but damnation. Collects Ghost Special #1, Ghost #1-12 (first series), and "Sweet Things" from Decade of Dark Horse #2.

Hombre, no es difícil encontrar la edición de La Urraca por ahí, en los salones, así que no es como para tirarse sobre la Previews ni nada, ¿no? ;-)

Buen blog! Fijo en mi RSS.

Francix: Te refieres al libro de Frankenstein, ¿no? Bueno, a mí me interesaría hacerme con la obra en su lengua original, y las ilustaciones de Bernie son la excusa perfecta... ;)

FranciX dijo...

Uy! Sí, me refería al maestro del terror. Yo tengo la de Ediciones La Urraca desde hace años, y no concibo otra forma de leer el clásico de Mary Shelley que con las ilustraciones del maestro al lado. Si lo quieres en inglés, no lo dudes, no existe mejor forma.

Y gracias por añadirme a tus enlaces. Espero que disfrutes de tus visitas como yo de mis paseos por aquí ;-)
