Dave Stevens: The Complete Sketchbook Collection Coming in July

A lot going on this July on the new comics front. IDW is throwing their name into that hat with the announcement that the Dave Stevens: The Complete Sketchbook Collection is coming in July as well.

Written and illustrated by Dave Stevens, the work chronicles, well, Dave Stevens. For several years, Dave Stevens self-published four sketchbooks to sell at San Diego Comic Con. As such, these were very limited edition and now everyone seems to want them. Fortunately for those people, this volume collects the entire contents of those four sketchbooks, plus approximately 100 additional sketches that have never before been published.

The work in this book are of varying stages of completion and a reminder that art is born of hard work. The works included offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Stevens' ability with pencil, pen and brush.

The 256 page black and white hardcover will set you back $50. Look for the book this July.
