The ORIGINAL ART ARCHIVES imprint was
created by longtime collectors and professionals Mike Thibodeaux,
Richard French and Peter Koch
with valuable input from editor Steve Robertson and
projects coordinator Andrew Steven Damsits.
professionals and, as importantly, fans ourselves, we have one major goal in mind:
to publish books of comic art that we ourselves have for years dreamed of seeing
in print. Having owned or seen first hand over the decades literally tens of thousands
of pages of classic comic art by such greats as Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Neal
Adams, Barry Windsor-Smith and Frank Frazetta
(to name just a few ), we realize
that in today's world many examples of great comic art are nearly impossible to
find, and prohibitively expensive on the rare occasions that they do turn up.
In the coming months we hope to share with art fans everywhere some of the most
remarkable works that have crossed our paths over the years, at full size and
in a manner that captures the true ...............nature
of the artist's work as drawn.
