Some Comments About Restoration for Comic Book Reprints | Simon and Kirby

Readers of my previous posts on the subject of restoration should know that I do not recreate line art (a process that Marvel still continues to use for their reprints of golden age material). However the end result of my restorations is by no means just a scan. I have no problems with describing what I do as “touch ups” only not in the manner that the TCJ commenter uses the term. Frankly the original printing used in these comics was pretty poor. Now as far as I am concerned reprints of just scans is far superior to art recreation however I prefer to try to correct some of the printing flaws.

Matt Fraction Talks “Fear Itself” at Heroes Con! | Comicbook.com

In discussing the background of Fear Itself Fraction said, “It began very simply with Tom (Brevoort) calling Ed (Brubaker) and I and saying we have a movie in May and then a Cap movie later.  Do you want to find a fun Thor/Cap mini-series to do?  Ed and I talked and came up with the core of the idea.  A sort of anti-Odin came about.  Hitler was obsessed with Norse mythology and we never got to see Cap fight a World War in our lifetime.  We kept getting hung up on how do you launch a story about Thor with a movie out?”
