SIGNED, Limited Ed. of 600 with Bonus Collector's Portfolio only in Signed Ed. Introduction by Michael Moorcock, this book from Vanguard Productions features Brunner's art from the late 1960's through present day. Throughout, Brunner shares anecdotes about his career in comics and after comics and catches us up with what he is doing today. The work of Frank Brunner reflects a unique sensibility, combining heroic design and lush eroticism with a touch of whimsy. He spent a long career working for many top animation studios that included Steven Spielberg and Disney. This seminal illustrator of the classic Dr. Strange, Warp, Elric and Howard the Duck is showcased in this retrospective of his comics and fantasy art. Treated with insight and humor, the text encompasses Brunner's schooling, influences, and career. Sections featuring his work are divided into beautiful women (imagine an over-18 Alice naked in Wonderland), sword & sorcery, and animation. Ninety-four images including sketches, covers, and fully-rendered illustrations in pencil and ink. Bonus essay not found in the softcover, gold foil-stamped leatherette cover, Smythe-sewn binding. Signed and numbered by Brunner and features a 16-page gallery of fully-detailed, finished pieces--more fantasy and nudes--not available in any other edition. Printed on glossy paper.
