Ever since the news hit about WEDNESDAY COMICS, fans have been clamoring and speculating about how the series will be collected. Well, as most of you should know by now, it'll happen in May, with the acclaimed weekly series collected in a nifty, oversized harcover with a ton of bonus material. "But what does it LOOK like, man?" Hey now. Relax! We aim to please here at The Source, so we managed to grab a shot of Art Director and WEDNESDAY COMICS maestro Mark Chiarello giving the book a look-see. Pretty cool, huh? The collection, which clocks in at 200 pages at 11"x17.5", and printed on 60 pound matte coated paper similar to that used for the JLA DELUXE EDITION HCs, also boasts a ton of extras. As if stories by Neil Gaiman, Mike Allred, Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo, Mike Allred and Kyle Baker wasn't enough. Not only does the collection feature two previously unpublished pages — one starring The Creeper (written by Keith Giffen with art by Eric Canete) and one starring Plastic Man (written by Evan Dorkin with art by Stephen DeStefano) -- it also sports a can’t-miss collection includes a 10-page sketchbook section with art from each illustrator, plus an intro by series editor Mark Chiarello. Excited? I know I am.
