DeMatteis shows off Ploog’s artwork from third <i>Abadazad</i> book

With CrossGen titles and Disney/Pixar comics now on Marvel’s slate, isn’t it time we saw the return of J.M. DeMatteis and Mike Ploog’s Abadazad?

Sorry, just had to get that out of the way. After starting as a comic from the now defunct CrossGen, Abadazad found another life as a short-lived series of books when Disney bought CrossGen’s assets. Only two books were released in the United States, while a third found it’s way to England … and over on his blog, DeMatteis has posted some of Ploog and colorist Nick Bell’s artwork that appeared in it.

Really great stuff, and it’s a shame it didn’t have a wider audience. But maybe one day DeMatteis and Ploog will have a chance to return to the world they created.
