Revered by his fellow craftsmen, critics and fans alike, this living legend boasts a storied career spanning fifty years. He has produced a body of narrative fiction that continues to provide endless hours of entertainment and inspiration to this day. Now, the Al Williamson Archives will grant unprecedented access to this master storyteller’s unseen work. Culled from the artist’s extensive private files, every themed volume of this ongoing series will feature unpublished sketches, preliminary artwork and pieces the artist created for his personal enjoyment.

Williamson’s fondness for fantasy and SF is showcased in this first volume. It collects work created throughout his career: impeccably rendered dinosaurs, barbarians, spacemen and their craft even a few sexy maidens. It also features a partially inked Xenozoic tale, previously unpublished newspaper strips and unused Western comics pages from the ’50s.

Every page will be printed in full color to best capture the subtleties of the source material and Williamson’s prodigious skill with pencil, pen, ink and brush. And the entire Al Williamson Archives library will be presented with the same exacting attention to detail and obvious obsession for faithful reproduction that readers can always expect from Flesk Publications.

About the Author:

Al Williamson was born in New York City in 1931. Williamson's professional credits are both legion and legendary. Developing an elegantly illustrative cartooning style, he first came to prominence with the highly influential EC comics line of the 1950s. His much beloved work in the mid-'60s on King Features Flash Gordon comic book series garnered him a "Best Comic Book Cartoonist” award from the prestigious National Cartoonist Society. He drew the daily comic strip Secret Agent Corrigan from 1967 until 1980, and then jumped to the Star Wars strip for another three years.
