New Signed Print art by J.H. Williams III


© J.H. Williams III and Todd Klein.

I’m delighted to announce my next 11 by 17 inch signed print will be a collaboration with artist J.H. Williams III. Above is a first look at the art, as sent, which I’m extremely happy with. The title will be “Drawing The Sword,” and I think the subject should be obvious. Text will be taken from “Le Morte d’Arthur” by Sir Thomas Malory. The print run will be 500 copies, signed by both of us, and will sell for $20, not including shipping. I’ll have more information, including an on-sale date in the coming weeks, but I’m aiming for the end of May at this point.

For those who don’t know, J.H. and I worked closely together on PROMETHEA, as described on my website HERE and HERE, and we continue to work together when we can, currently on Batwoman in DETECTIVE COMICS, beginning with issue 854. You can see some of the art on his website. J.H. is great fun to work with, and was an obvious choice for a print collaboration, and I’m glad we’ve finally gotten to it!

In the past week I’ve done the lettering and design work, and sent test copies to J.H. for his approval. He’s happy, so I’ve ordered the paper and will begin printing when that comes in. Next I’ll paint spot color on each print, sign them, and send them to J.H. for his signatures. When I have them all completed and back in my hands I’ll set the on-sale date. If you’d like to be notified of that, and be among the first to get on-sale and ordering info, you can sign up to my Mailing List. Information about the previous print collaborations with Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Alex Ross can be found on my Buy Stuff page, along with other things I have for sale.

I’ll be blogging about the creation of this new print in the coming weeks, too, once it’s further along. Stay tuned!

    Terrific, terrific work as usual. These have got to be among my favorite pieces in my collection, even though they aren’t (technically) comic books.

    I was wondering who was going to be brave enough to follow Moore, Gaiman and Ross. J.H. Williams III certainly delivered. Can’t wait to see/order the final product.

    Maybe it’s too early to think about the next print, but “Excelsior!” by Stan Lee would be my suggestion, if it’s at all possible. 🙂

    Yes, I’ve been committed alphabetically since Neil’s print, when he said, ominously, “The next one better begin with C…”

    How exciting! I love collecting these, some day I’ll get them all framed and hung in a row on my wall 🙂

    I was wondering when the next print will be available, and the art by JHW3, amazing!!!

    Just to be sure, who’s already on your mailing list don’t need to sign up again, right?

    Great work!

    That looks incredible.
    Can you give us a hint if the next one is with a writer or an artist? Any chance we might see something from Grant Morrison?

    The next one is with an artist, the one after with a writer. That’s all I can say until they’re further along.

    That is amazing. I can’t wait to see it with the lettering, and see which part of Le Morte D’Arthur you choose. And I can’t wait to put it up on the wall with the others.

    Do you have an update on when this new print will be available? Don’t get me wrong; I don’t mean to rush you. I’m just giddy with anticipation, is all. : )

    Not a problem, I’m going to blog about it soon. The print is finished except for J.H.’s signatures, and they’re with him. He doesn’t think he’ll have time to do that for another week or so. That means I won’t be able to announce an on-sale date until he has signed them and sent them back. I’m guessing the earliest it might go on sale is two weeks from Monday, or June 16, but that’s subject to the above.
