FPG publishes the long-awaited Mike Ploog retrospective art book, The Art of Ploog. This comprehensive art book is an oversize 9" x 12" retrospective that covers every aspect of Ploog's career, from his earliest days of working with Leatherneck Magazine while still a young man serving in the Marines, to his extremely popular work in comics and film, right up through his latest work on Goliath. The Art of Ploog will contain hundreds of pieces of art, as well as commentary by the likes of Ralph Bakshi, John Carpenter, Frank Oz, Roy Thomas, and the master himself; Mike Ploog. Included is work he did for Marvel comics (including Frankenstein, Ghost Rider, and Man-Thing) as well as a wide range of his film work on animated features (such as Lord of the Rings, Shrek, and Wizards) and live-action features (including Little Shop of Horrors and X-Men). The book will also contain paintings he worked on for the collectible card games Guardians and Magic the Gathering, most of which have never been reproduced larger than trading card size. This is the ultimate collection spanning Ploog's entire career. Also available in a signed and numbered edition, limited to 250 copies.
