IDW Publishing is pleased to offer under license from our good friends at Marvel Comics the first Star Wars Artifact Edition! Featuring scans of original art mainly from the initial 10 issues of Marvel Comics’ groundbreaking Star Wars comics, as well as from other early issues by Carmine Infantino. As with all Artist’s Edition style books, there will be a wealth of extras, including a superb cover gallery showcasing some of the very earliest examples.
•What is an Artifact Edition?
•LIKE AN ARTIST’S EDITION, AN ARTIFACT EDITION PRESENTS PAGES SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART. While the Artist’s Edition line produces only complete stories, Artifact Editions allow IDW to present books even if all of the original art cannot be obtained, and will include extras such as advertisements, portfolio pieces, color guides, and more.
•While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

In the world of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a new team of mutated animals has formed. When someone close to the group is kidnapped, the Mutanimals go on a wild and dangerous adventure to uncover the secrets of The Null Group. The book collects all four issues of the miniseries and reunites writer Paul Allor with Kuhn.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutanimals was one of the most challenging, and most fun, comics I have drawn in my entire twenty-year career. It was a daunting task to be chosen to bring back this beloved group of characters.” says Kuhn. ” It’s great to see that fans are responding to it positively. And as a huge comics fan myself, getting to meet and speaking with other comics fans is one of the things that makes all the time spent at the drawing board worthwhile.”
