"James O'Barr: Uncoffined" Sketchbook
Headline - Press release
Posted by Richard Boom on May 1, 2013
Eva Ink Publishing is soliciting our first in a series of James O'Barr sketchbooks to coincide with his convention appearances with Eva Ink.
This first in a series book will feature never before published James O'Barr sketches in a striking black and white format. 36 pages. The title "Uncoffined" conjures the fact that these sketches are being shared from James's personal collection, in published format, for the first time.
The book will be available in the next Diamond Catalogue in the Eva Ink (aka Little Eva Ink) section, and will be offered in both a Signed and a Sketch version.
About James O'Barr:
In 1993 his book was adapted into the cult film of the same name starring Brandon Lee. He would like you to know that nearly all of the money made from the film was donated to children's charities and he had nothing to do with the ubsequent 3 sequels or TV show (though he does like Mark DaCascos) and scoffs at the current plans to remake the first film. Pshawwww,he says.
He has worked for every major publisher,with the exception of DC who is apparently afraid of what he would do with Batman. In Italy,1995, he won the Academy Award of comics,the Yellow Kid award for best storyteller.
