Description

Six color plates in a printed folder.

Penciled by John Buscema, inked by Rudy Nebres and colored by Peter Ledger, six full-color prints featuring characters from Marvel Comics prestige fantasy series Weirdworld: Warriors of the Shadow Realm. Printed on high-quality linen paper stock, intended to add high-fantasy prestige to the comics series. Presented in a folder illustrated with sketches by Buscema.

Limited edition portfolios were a phenomenon of the 1970s and 80s. They grew out of a greater appreciation of comic and fantasy artists. Middle-Earth lead the way publishing a 1973 portfolio of Frank Frazetta drawings that quickly sold out its 500-copy print run. It was followed by Barry Smith's Tupenny Conan Portfolio in 1974 and another Frazetta portfolio, The Lord of the Rings, in 1975. This lead to a decade of large format, limited edition portfolios: a suite of new illustrations created without restrictions or censorship, with better printing on better paper, reproduced in a large size, to fully appreciate the artwork.
