Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book - page after page of breathtaking artwork by the master of 80's pin up art. Multiple variations of each drawing, showing pencil layouts and finished inks seperately, and frequently there is additional blown up detail shots. A wealth of Stevens' 80's indie covers are represented from Eclipse, Pacific and the like, along with rare inked comic book pages featuring Tarzan, Star Wars as well as some lesser known characters. If this book was bigger size, it'd be considered an 'Artists edition' with a considerably larger price tag. As it is, its still oversized and great value. Dave Stevens fans will lap it up, non fans are sure to become fans after seeing this book.

Best Stevens book, for me it is, there is another one by IDW, but for me I enjoyed this as it had much more classic art and sketches (more girls) than the last hardcover, it's well written and well laid out. If you are interested in pin up and in Mr Stevens, look this up

A fantastic collection of work by an extremely talented and sadly missed artist. Gave me many a smile seeing all of the classic covers from back in the 80's. highly recommended

Something to be aware of... 16 Oct. 2012
By TheEyesHaveIt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
IDW has chosen to print a small number of Dave Steven's pinups within this volume as double-page spreads and foldouts. In theory, that doesn't sound like a bad thing. In practice, the binding style used for this book causes portions of the artwork in those kinds of treatments to visually "disappear" into the gutter area near the spine. Yes, you get to see the majority of the pinup in a larger size, but it also visually breaks up the middle of the artwork to a degree that can make you wish that it was simply a single page reproduction instead. Overall though, it's a very nice book.

One of the Best 15 Oct. 2012
By Buffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dave Stevens was one of the best comic book and pin-up artists and with this book along with Brush With Passion, The Rocketeer Complete Deluxe Edition, and the Complete Sketchbook Collection we now have a complete retrospective of his work in book form. Covers and Stories collects all the short stories, classic covers along with sketch versions, pin-ups, prints, and other odds and ends (there's even mid 1970's artwork he drew for San Diego Comic Con souvenir programs and badges). It's amazing how in-depth this collection is and it's all beautifully printed in this hardcover collection: the classic Pacific Comics and Eclipse comics covers, several unpublished covers, Comico, Dark Horse, DC and much more. The short stories include pages where Dave was the inker (Tarzan, Star Wars), and for the Pacific Comics stories the original artwork is reproduced. The pin-ups section includes one of my all-time favorite pieces the Betty's Boudoir print in full color and so much more! For the Dave Stevens fan this is a must-have book and highly recommended. My only sadness comes in knowing that this is probably the last collection of Dave Stevens art that will be published from IDW. They've done a great job with the Dave Stevens collection and it's a superb tribute to such a talented artist. Five stars.

A Wonderful Collection of Dave Stevens Art 16 Oct. 2012
By T. Vincent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm reviewing this book under the assumption you have the Rocketeer stories, and have tracked down most if not all of Stevens' more accessible work. For you, the question is, what is in this 272-page book?

As expected, it contains all of Stevens' covers for Pacific Comics, Eclipse, Dark Horse, Comico, and other assorted publishers. These are all presented in black and white, shot from original art, and often with detailed closeups and pencil thumbnails and studies. "The Stories" section also includes, again as expected, Dave's "Aurora," "Princess Pam," and "Fair Play" stories from Pacific's Alien Worlds comic book. This book also contains some oddities and more obscure items for the discerning collector. First among these is the 12-page story "Cosmo Cat" from Quack #1, published in July 1976, this funny animal style story is claimed to be the artist's first professional published story. There's 1977's two page "My Greatest Adventure" from Fear and Laughter #1. There's also a cover and three sample pages of his work on British Tarzan comics (the book says he did eighty-one pages total!)and a couple of pages showing Stevens' inks on some Star Wars comics. A couple things I didn't know about: Stevens inking Tom Yeates on a couple pages from Jonny Quest #4 and some inks on Will Meuginot for a Marvel kiddie comic.

This is all rounded out with Bettie Page pinups, Marvel T-Shirt Designs, and artwork for San Diego Comic Con programs and badges. The Complete Sketches and Studies contains some of Stevens' other commercial work, like a greeting card design and some Michael Jordan comic. So you still need that book too.

Whether you're a long-time Dave Stevens fan or a neophyte, there's something in here for you. The book opens with a heart felt introduction by Adam Hughes, who sadly reminds us there's not much Stevens' art left out there. Hughes also reminds, while we mourn the loss of an artist, others mourned a true friend and family member.

Poor Two-Page Spreads Ruins Bests Pieces 14 Dec. 2012
By beanlynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off, Dave Stevens is my favorite comic artist, period. No one draws prettier women, or has a cleaner, more attractive style. And the quality of the book represented in this book is amazing. But unfortunately really really poor decisions when it comes to two page spreads ruins the best pieces which you are left wishing were only one page spreads. There are even a couple of three page spreads that use gatefolds which are unfortunately ruined by the binding beween the two connected pages. It leaves you feeling frustrated and teased. The sad thing is that the book is big enough that the art could have been displayed perfectly at a nice size as it is. These really poor choices take what would have been a five star book and turn it into a three star book.

Gorgeous retrospective of Dave Stevens work. Worth twice the price! 17 Oct. 2012
By B. Cheshire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great reproductions of art that hasnt been reprinted in ages. Plenty of examples here scanned from the original work. You can see where he whites out mistakes and redraws a line. As an artist, it is nice to see the thought process of a fellow artist I respect greatly. IDW publishing has created the standard for how an art book should be presented.
