THE SUMMER '08 COLLECTION



You knew summer was coming, you just didn't know how hot it was going to get. Until now! Heh, heh, I suck at this.

Anyways, I'm happy once again to unveil the line up for this year's San Diego Comicon release/debut, other wise known as "The Summer Collection".

You won't see previews of all of these titles because some of them are being shipped to the Brandstudio Press headquarters in NY and simultaneously to the SDCC, which is merely a week away. I haven't even seen them yet, myself, but I will in a couple of days and I'll post more pics as soon as I have them in my filthy little hands.


SUMMER READING LIST
This year's notables include one of my favorite artists in the whole world: Patricio Betteo, whose magnificent sense of design and color palette leave me breathless. I'm so happy to be involved in the publishing his very first art book.

Another amazing artist who's respected the world over is also publishing his very first sketchbook/art book through Brandstudio Press, his name is Darwyn Cooke, you might have heard of him. His "Retroactive" book will go on sale on the 25th of July, at the stroke of midnigh. (such drama queen I turned out to be)

And like the guy in the infomercial said —after you thought you've already got a great deal buying the knife that doubles as a personal gym— "That's not all!" Just for the fuck of it, we'll throw in Humberto Ramos' brand new masterpiece of a sketchbook called "Fairy Quest", as well as J. Scott Campbell's highly anticipated Brandstudio Press' debut entitled: "Code Orange" and Francisco Herrera's newest "Sketchbox" sketchbook, titled: "Sketchbox 2".

"And If you act now" (or later) you'll also receive David Finch's "High Voltage" which, may I say, is Dave's first ever hard cover, full-color sketchbook; Justin Ridge's and Hye-Jung's double-sided-action-packed (that came out wrong) pin-up book named "Flavor 01"; Cameron Stewart's color symphony called "Cameron Stewartwork"; Mark Behm's "Nightworks -The Art of Mark Behm's"; Justin Coffee's "Sugar and Cream" delight and Dean Yeagle's "Mandy's Portrait Gallery" Phew! I'm spent!

All of this mind-numbing inspirational art and great quality, made from the strongest artist-block-resistant materials known to man for an unbelievable (and paltry) $24.95 each, plus shipping and handling, of course.

"But Wait!!

(this is where you go: "Good god, can there be any more??")

"Yes, There's more!!". For being such a loyal audience and to keep the e-bay speculators and the book scalpers from entering the sanctity of your home computer, we're re-printing Frank Cho's bestseller "Jungle Queens" , Alberto Ruiz's "Confessions of a Process Junkie", Humberto Ramos' "Toxic Waste" and Francisco Herrera's original "Sketchbox" and we're making them available to you for a limited time and while supplies last, for, get this!: THE SAME OLD PRICE OF $24.95 !!


You heard right! Same fooking price, not a penny more. Take that, you e-bay pirate assholes! Go fook yourselves!

Some of these titles are available for purchase RIGHT NOW, some will go on sale on the 25th of July and some of them you'll be able to pre-order from our online store, so secure your copies (which I highly recommend due to the limited quantities we have of some of these books and the demand, which by experience, we anticipate will be ridiculous)

So without further salesman bullshit, here's the list, have a wonderful summer reading and I'll see a good chunk of you, fine individuals at the biggest circus on Earth, in sunny San Diego.

Make sure to visit all of these artists at their individual booths or tables at the San Diego Comicon, buy the books directly from the artists. If you can't make it to the show, feel free to acquire the books through our online store: www.brandstudiopress.com

We'll be at the same booth we were last year, that is: H-3 click HERE to see map.

Jet Ski Ham said...

The selection looks simply amazing. The post says that the Darwyn Cooke book is available as of July 25th, but I don't see an "Add to Cart" link or a listing on brandstudiopress.com. When will this book be available for purchase online?

Thanks so much, and keep up the great work!

Where can I find these books in France or do ship to France.
