Incoming: FABLES DELUXE EDITION BOOK 16

I think my favorite long series that I worked on after SANDMAN is FABLES, and over the last few years, the band got back together to produce a new 12-issue storyline that I thought was as good as anything that came before it. That story is now out in a deluxe hardcover, which looks great. I don’t think you need to have read all the previous stories to enjoy this one, but that would deepen the experience. Retail price is $39.99, and it’s due for release on May 21, 2024. Check with your comics retailer, or you can order it on Amazon at the link.

Another massive Omnibus hardcover has arrived, this one weighing about five pounds and running 792 pages. This is a new second edition. It collects the bookend titles, which I lettered, and seven four-issue miniseries. Lots of top artists joined Morrison, from J.H. Williams III to Doug Mahnke, and plenty more. I confess I only read what I needed to know from the miniseries, but I enjoyed the bookends. It’s due out Nov 28, check with your retailer, or use the Amazon link below. Retail price is $125.

Amazon shows a release date of Oct 10th. Link below, or order from your comics retailer.

Just arrived here is another giant collection of comics I lettered. iZOMBIE ran for 28 issues from Vertigo, written by Chris Roberson, art by Michael and Laura Allred. I’ve never been a zombie fan, but these stories were interesting and fun, with great writing and art. There’s also some new material. The series became a popular CW TV series that ran five seasons from 2015 to 2019. I think there was already an omnibus under the Vertigo imprint, this version is due out Oct 24, 2023. Order from your comics retailer or use the link below. Retail price $125.
