Press Release from Comic-Con International
SAN DIEGO, June 18 -- A new hardbound collector's book entitled COMIC-CON: 40 YEARS OF ARTISTS, WRITERS, FANS AND FRIENDS begins pre-sales today.
The massive 208-page, 9X12 full-color book features over 620 images from the 40-year history of Comic-Con. Most of the art has not been seen since its initial publication in Comic-Con's program and souvenir books, and the majority of the photos have never been seen outside of the Comic-Con archives. And sprinkled throughout the book are quotes and observations from leading professionals in comics, movies, and television, commenting on their own experiences at the show.
The whole package is capped off with an amazing new full-color wraparound cover by one of Comic-Con's favorite special guests: Sergio Aragones. Masterfully colored by Tom Luth!
Advance sale books are $31.99 and includes CA Sales tax, but are only available to those attending Comic-Con 2009 and must be picked up on site during the convention. Unfortunately at this time Comic-Con cannot ship the book. All orders for pick up must be received by Monday, July 13, 2009.
Books will also be for sale at Comic-Con (provided books are still available) for the cover price of $40.00 + CA Sales tax.
Complete information on how to order and where to pick up the Book at Comic-Con is available at http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_40th_book.php.
COMIC-CON: 40 YEARS OF ARTISTS, WRITERS, FANS, AND FRIENDS was produced by Comic-Con and designed and published by Chronicle Books of San Francisco, one of the world's leading publishers of pop culture and art and photography books.
