IDW PUBLISHING FOR MARCH

CONLUVIO: THE ART OF BEN TEMPLESMITH, VOL. 2

Written and art by Ben Templesmith.

Conluvio -onis f. [collection of impurities, filth]; of people, [scum, rabble]... first, artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Wormwood Gentleman Corpse) offered up a collection of some of his best art in the form of his last art book, Tommyrot. Now, he's back with a second collection, this one made up entirely of never-before-published art from Ben. Meet the Interdimensional Part-Time Assassins Guild (IPAG), a motley bunch of assorted scum, lowlifes, killers and degenerates. Ninety-six pages of paintings, character designs and idea generations from the alcohol-pickled mind of the artist.

WORMWOOD, VOL. 1 TPB

Owing a favor to his lazy ghost cop buddy Trotsky, Wormwood, the gentleman corpse and his oddball entourage are brought in to investigate the case (or at least hopefully not stuff it up too much). This collection compiles the first miniseries, the original łTaster˛ issue, and covers, sketches, pin-ups and other cocktail napkin scribblings from Templesmith
