This is a sealed Mint condition First Printing of IDW's first Artist's Edition and dedicated to Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer. It was a runaway hit and sold out in record time. It was reprinted three years later with an alternate cover and again in a small softcover format. It is out of print in all versions.
From the publisher:
A very special book honoring the work of this esteemed creator. Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer: Artist's Edition will be a mammoth 12" x 17" hardcover book...Nearly every page in The Rocketeer has been scanned in color from Stevens' original art to ensure the best possible reproduction and highest degree of accuracy. Printed on uncoated stock and at the same size as the original art, Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer: Artist's Edition will be the next best thing to holding the actual art by Dave Stevens.
