This project seeks to raise funds to print 250 Limited Edition copies of Dan Brereton's newest hardcover art book, Enchantress: The Illustrative Art of Dan Brereton. This limited edition will include an additional 24 pages of new and rarely seen artwork by Dan which will not be included in the original 96 page edition. This is the cover image for the book:
Dan's traditionally hand-painted and drawn work has been described as "a harmonious confluence of contrasts and contradictions, coming together in imagery, color and opinion, delighting to the eye." At once colorful and dark, brilliantly lit, yet moody and energetic. His unique style is instantly recognizable; you always know his brand of females, monsters or heroes when you see them, and his work in any genre has an unmistakeable stamp.
Dan has received many honors for his beautiful painted comic book work including (the Russ Manning Award, an ENnie award, and is a five time Eisner Nominee). He is a frequent writer for Animation and Comic Books and is best known for such works as his acclaimed series Nocturnals and his Graphic novel epic, GiantKiller. Over a career spanning twenty-seven years, Dan has worked on countless titles, such as JLA:SEVEN CASKETS, LEGENDS OF THE WORLDS FINEST, BATMAN: THRILLKILLER, SUPERMAN: SILVER BANSHEE, LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT, RED SONJA, VAMPIRELLA, THE SPIDER, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, PUNISHER: FRANKENCASTLE, GOD-SIZED THOR, RED HULK, CAPTAIN AMERICA,, ULTIMATE TEAM-UP, MARS ATTACKS, and GODZILLA .
