Think of the show today as and extension of the Around Comics Alex Ross interview that was released on New Years Eve. As I state in the show, I was to do a little rundown of all things collected that involves Ross. As you can guess the segment ran a bit too long, so I’m expanding it even further and using it as today’s feature. As you know, Ross has done just about as many major projects as you have fingers, and I’m betting that you can name them all. But as for his Collected Editions, what are all the extras? Today we take a look at a few books, like The Absolute Kingdom Come, The World’s Greatest Super Heroes Slipcase (a precursor to the Absolute line), Mythology, Marvels and the Earth X Hardcover Book Package. A big time artist with a lot of big books.
Also on the show today, I go over a few couple of conventions coming to the Detroit area. First up is the The American Comic Book – A Detroit Perspective – An Exhibit of Comic Book Art and Paintings by Detroit Area Artists on January 19 – February 16, 2008 and then the Motor-City Comic Con on May 16-18, 2008. I’ll be attending both.
Other than that, the news has been slow and the Release List is smaller than usual. No surprise in either case.
