Besides having the best selection of new and old comics in this area, Flying Colors Comics also features several departments not always found in other comic book stores. One of the treasure spots in our store is our Art/Reference/History section, with tons of books for those who not only love their comics, but also love to know more about the artists who make the medium so wildly creative.
A few new addtions to the art section include:
• "RGK: The Art of Roy G. Krenkel"
• "Spies, Vixens & Masters of Kung-Fu: The Art of Paule Gulacy"
• Frank Frazetta's 2006 wall calendar
We carry a number of small press sketchbooks usually only found in limited quantities at comic conventions.
These currently include sketchbooks by:
• Neal Adams
• Tony De Zuniga
• Dan Brereton
• Eduardo Risso
• Liam Sharp
• Ray Lago
Flying Colors also has a comprehensive selection of comic art bigraphies and sketchbooks from publishers such as Vanguard and TwoMorrows, featuring artists from the Golden and Silver Ages, including artists John Buscema, Jim Steranko, John Romita, Murphy Anderson, George Tuska, Nick Cardy, Alex Schomburg, Curt Swan, Carmine Infantino, Michael Kaluta, Gil Kane, Bernard Krigstein, Gene Colan and others.
Whew! And I didn't even start with the Reference/History section!
