Pure Imagination
Greg Theakston, both the brains and brawn behind Pure Imagination, is a comics soldier who's spent his life in the trenches to keep the classics of comics alive. This is his latest and greatest project. Each volume runs between 160 and 200 8 1/2" x 11" pages, and re-presents in glorious black and white the classic comics of yesteryear by the greatest names in the business. The art in these issues has been painstakingly reproduced from the originals by a process that has been come to be know as Theakston-ization, an original process by which the original comics have the color leached out, leaving only the black and white line art, which is then reproduced to appear exactly as it did at the time of original publication. This is the way to read old comics! (Unless, of course, you're independently wealthy and can afford to spring for the thousands of dollars that it would cost to buy the originals reproduced in these volumes. These comics don't feature the famous superhero characters, that have become cash cows for the majors. No, these volumes focus instead on the artwork by the same artists that made these characters famous, but in those instances when it was applied to pure story-telling, without having to worry about the marketing and product placement that accompanies comics featuring famous characters. These are really worth checking out and will be treasured by connoisseurs of comics everywhere.
