J. Scott Campbell: Time Capsule (英语) 精装 – 2015年12月8日
In 2004, Richard Starkings spent Election Day with fan-favorite artist J. Scott Campbell talking about his first ten years in comics. Richly illustrated with black and white art from Campbell's files, the conversation covers Gen 13, Danger Girl, Wildsiderz, and triggered his association with Spider-Man. Also features a 16-page color section.

At 256 pages, its more than double the size of most of the other Campbell hard cover books and as a fan that already owns all of the other hard cover books, part of me was worried that a good portion of this book would just wind up being images already presented in other books. Fortunately, that is deifnitely not the case as there is a lot of artwork in here that is not covered by his other hard cover books. I buy a LOT of comic related art books and this is ultimately one of the more unique artbooks released onto the market over the last 5+ years as it ultimately contains FAR more information than most art books do. I guess that can either be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on just what your looking for. Again, if all your after is a tomb of Campbells artwork, presented in full page presentations, your ultimately going to be disappointed, but if your a big fan of Campbell and have as much iterest in the artist himself and the work he did during that 10 year period as you do his artwork, your going to find this book an absolute thrill to read through.
Bottom line - this is definitely a book aimed at the more die hard Campbell fan. Again if your just after books that conatin his full color artwork, in full page spreads, then your best bet is sticking with the 7-8 hardcover books he already has on the market, but if your a big fan of Campbell and want as much information as artwork and love sketchbook style art, than this book definitely becomes a must buy!! Honestly, I wish we would see this style artbook FAR more often. It really is a breath of fresh air in its overall approach and style.
J. Scott Campbell is one of today's hottest artists, and some consider him a relatively new artist, but he's been a working artist for over 20 years and this book captures the first decade of his professional portfolio from the beginning and his origins starting out. He's hit his stride in the recent past decade and hasn't even pinnacled yet, with growing popularity and gaining a larger fan base. He's best known for his cover artwork lately more so than his sequential story telling (interior art), but had done excellent work with "Gen13" and creating "Danger Girl" - - his work has been used for Disney licensed products as well, so he's transcended just the comic book industry and medium.
This is a great book to own, it's so enjoyable to read and look at the artwork, so is to me, a complete book where I look forward to seeing the next release showcasing his work from 2005 onward...
