Special Edition Spotlight: The Last Galactus Story

The Last Galactus Story, Special Layflat Edition measuring at 14″ w x 19″ h


I recently re-connected with David Banks of Single Bound Studios in Omaha, NE. He had a few special projects we are working on including The Last Galactus Story. David explained to me this is a legendary story, through the comic book industry,  due to it was never completed, or reprinted. Over the last 2.5 years David scanned all pages at 1200 dpi and did extensive cleanup on the images. He has now also produced this title in 3 different versions along with this one.  Great job David!  The final book is quite stunning.  Weighing in at about 35 lbs and measuring 14″ w x 19″ h, interior 31 spread pages printed on German Pro Photo Paper hard cover. The cover is backed with a dark grey Linen Buckram  and wrapped with the  matte laminated front cover image  — it is truly impressive! Click here to see a quick video post on the book!

Layflat binding allows each 2 page spread to lay flat
