From the publisher:
A comprehensive art book on Mike Ploog. This 352-page retrospective covers almost every aspect of Mike's career, from his earliest days of working with "Leatherneck" magazine, while he was still in the Marines, right up through his latest work on "Goliath." "The Art of Ploog" contains, quite literally, hundreds of pieces of art from throughout his career, as well as commentary by the master himself. You'll find all his best known works in this book. Included is the work he did for Marvel comics (on titles such as "Frankenstein," "Ghost Rider," "Planet of the Apes," and "Werewolf By Night"), as well as a wide range of his film work on animated features (such as "Lord of the Rings," "Shrek," and "Wizards") and live-action features (including "Little Shop of Horrors," "The Thing," and "X-Men"). The book also contains many of his most popular paintings; paintings that were created for his own fantasy art trading card series; as well as paintings he worked on for the collectible card games "Guardians" and "Magic the Gathering," most of which have never been reproduced larger than trading card size. It's the ultimate collection spanning his entire career.
