ABOUT 'IN THE NIGHT STUDIO' - DIRECT MARKET EDITION

Dan Brereton has been a comics creator for three decades, with a penchant for rich color and bold linework depicting figures heroic and monstrous, feminine and bestial. When not illustrating comic book covers and the interiors of graphic novels (like his newest 'Nocturnals: The Sinister Path') Dan paints many private commissions.

 The Direct Market Edition will be 88 page hardcover, largely featuring Dan's newest work produced in the past year.

 

ABOUT THE DELUXE PUBLISHER'S EDITION

Exclusively through this campaign, supporters can receive a deluxe version this new art book.  This limited Publisher's Edition comes signed by the artist, and will include an artwork-only cover dust jacket (with no logos or text) featuring the gorgeous nude or  "unwrapped' version of the cover art, and an additional 16 pages of new and rarely seen artwork by Dan which will not be included in the original 88 page edition.

Below are just a few samples of the book's interior, including recent covers to popular comics, private commissions, personal pieces, and much more!
