Negative Burn Collection in January 2005

Written and illustrated by various, cover by Ken Meyer Jr.

Negative Burn was an anomaly, merging together genres, pushing boundaries and allowing the top comic book talent in the world an opportunity to experiment and tell stories that they wanted to tell. When told that a black-and-white anthology title without a defined theme would never last beyond five issues, Negative Burn exceeded all expectations by running 50 issues and ending of its own decree, garnering numerous industry award nominations along the way. The biggest stars in the industry (Neil Gaiman, Brian Bolland, Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, Moebius, P. Craig Russell, etc.) co-existed side-by-side with the next wave of superstars (Brian Michael Bendis, David Mack, Paul Pope, Jon Cassaday, Frank Quitely, Jeff Smith, Terry Moore, Paul Jenkins, Mike Wieringo, etc.) to produce perhaps the most eccentric anthology title in the history of comics.

This volume takes the very best from the first 50 issues of this prestigious anthology and presents them all together here for the first time. Contributors read like a veritable "who's who" of comic talent: Neil Gaiman, Brian Bolland, Alan Moore, P. Craig Russell, Dave Johnson, Dave Gibbons, Evan Dorkin, Phil Hester, Arthur Adams, Edvin Biukovic, Bob Burden, Zander Cannon, Mark Chiarello, Guy Davis, Michael Gaydos, Danijel Zezelj, Darko Macan, Mike Wieringo, Terry Moore, Paul Pope, Andrew Robinson, Jim Mahfood and more!

Collects stories from Negative Burn #1-50.

200 pages, black and white, $19.95, in stores on Jan. 12.
