IDW Publishing will collect Bravo for Adventure, a rarely seen story legendary artist Alex Toth, as part of its Library of American Comics.
Out of print for three decades, the original 48-page story about “knock-about pilot and reluctant swashbuckler” Jesse Bravo was created for a French publisher, but a planned graphic novel was never released. It was later serialized in Warren Publishing’s comics magazine The Rook before reappearing again, with additional Jesse Bravo short stories, at a couple of other publishers. Toth never completed his full story.
Marking the first time the Jesse Bravo stories have been collected, IDW’s 100-page hardcover edition will include all three published stories, never-before-seen pencil roughs, preliminary drawings and story fragments, as well as Toth’s coloring samples for an edition that was never printed.
“Toth fans worldwide have been clamoring for years to see Bravo back in print,” Dean Mullaney, editor of the new edition, said in a statement. “Now, by special arrangement with the Toth family, it becomes a reality. This is another one of those ‘dream’ projects that only come along once in a long while.”
The $34.99 Bravo for Adventure is scheduled for release in July.
