MADMAN ARTIST SELECT HC

 

IDW CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF MICHAEL ALLRED’S MADMAN WITH NEW LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER

IDW Limited’s New Madman: Quarter Century Shindig Offers Signed Editions and Original-Art Editions

The zippiest, poppy-est, outright ginchy-est comic in the world, Madman, is celebrating its twenty-fifth birthday and IDW Limited is helping ring in the celebration with a special new hardcover limited edition collection hand-curated by series creator and multiple Eisner-winner, Michael Allred!

Madman: Quarter Century Shindig is an oversize hardcover collection and the newest release in IDW Limited’s Artist Select series. Previous Artist Select editions have featured Marvel characters including The Hulk and The Avengers, and now, Allred’s Frank Einsten is joining the party.

Madman: Quarter Century Shindig compiles more than 450 pages of Madman adventures, all hand-picked by Allred and spanning the character’s 25-year history. The book celebrates the incredibly innovating, risk-taking work of Allred. Hand-picked by the creator, the book includes stories from the character’s earliest tales through adventures set in Dimension X, including a story told in one connecting 32-page image; a story told in flip-book fashion; stories presented in both duotone color and the full vibrancy that colorist Laura Allred brings to every page she touches. The stories collected herein showcase not only the best Madman adventures but also the progression, dynamism, inventiveness, and pop-art madness that infuses all of Allred’s work.


IDW’s Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall conducted a comprehensive new interview with Allred to open the book as well.

And as an IDW Limited Artist Select release, this collection is being offered in two deluxe limited editions. 999 signed and numbered copies will come housed in a clothbound slipcase priced at $125, while 56 incredibly rare, traycased copies will come with an original piece of art drawn and colored by Michael Allred, these collector's items 25 years in the making will be available for $350 each.

As a unique touch befitting Madman, all 56 of Allred’s original hand-drawn plates make up one animated sequence. Check out the animated GIF of the image here: Run Madman, run!

“For over two decades now, Mike Allred’s art and storytelling have thrilled readers like myself,” said Ryall. “Really, it’s impossible not to look at a page of Mike’s art and not have it put a huge smile on your face. So IDW is very excited to be able to celebrate this anniversary of Mike’s work on Madman and offer up this amazing new collection.”
