We've taken some reservations for certain titles and they may not last the week but we expect to receive more copies of the most popular books with our third and fourth batches of San Diego sketchbooks due to arrive before the end of August and in September.
Basically if you're not the patient sort then do hurry to Pulp's Art or phone us to ensure you get in on this first bite of the sketchbook pie.
J. SCOTT CAMPBELL MARVELOUS
HC 48pp Color
The first of what the publisher - and I'm sure the public and ourselves as well - hopes will be a series of many books produced in conjunction with the artists and Marvel Comics naturally featuring top artist depicting Marvel's top characters.
If it is to be a series then it couldn't have made a better start than this debut featuring the art of J. Scott Campbell.
The art features all the major Marvel characters some of it is enhanced text free cover images, some of it fan commissions and personal research, all in JSC's sexy and dynamic style.

FRANK CHO SKETCHES & SCRIBBLES # 6

Monkey Boy Press
Just what Frank's many fans have been waiting for a new collection of published and unpublished works by the modern master of good girl and heroic fantasy imagery.
A blistering blend of barbarian brutes, scary saurians and nude nymphs all certain to please Frank's sizable following.
A few week's back I was lamenting the tragic loss of Dave Stevens and we should be very grateful talented artists such as Mark Schultz and Frank Cho are out there carrying on this tradition of fantasy illustration.
MICHAEL TURNER SKETCHBOOK THE HEROIC YEARS
SC 48pp Black + White
Sorry, the purpose of this blog is to alert potential customers to products they might like not to leave readers brooding over talent lost to us while in their prime but from a mention of the late Dave Stevens here we are considering the late Michael Turner.
Aspen have produced a small number of this sketchbook collecting 150 of Michael's studies for his own characters and those of DC made between 2005 and 2007, just before his tragic passing in 2008.

Ever since we've offered Fairy Quest The Narrator's Book featuring Humberto's character studies for this series people have been clamoring for more Fairy Quest and finally the wait is over, or at least it is if you hurry here otherwise you'll have to wait for later in the month and our third batch of books.
