After my son was born in September, I treated myself a New Father gift - this signed and numbered limited edition hardcover from IDW Limited collecting Joe Hill's NOS4A2 and comic book prequel, The Wraith, into a single volume. I read NOS4A2 when it came out a few years ago, and it was my first introduction to a Joe Hill. This book very quickly earned its spot as one of my all-time favorites, and Hill as an author that rose to my Must-Buy Immediately list. While I have to catch up on his back catalog of work, I've already got his next book, The Fireman, on pre-order and am eagerly anticipating its midnight delivery to my Kindle on May 17. I can't freaking wait!
So, this limited edition hardcover. Yes, it is expensive, but oh so very worth it for a book that I completely adore, and hope to one day pass down to the kiddo when I hit my expiration date. It comes in a rugged cloth slipcase, and wrapped in a gorgeously detailed dust jacket featuring all new artwork, along with 26 pieces of fresh art in color and black-and-white from The Wraith series artist Charles Paul Wilson III, who also signs the book alongside Hill. This edition is limited to 999 copies (mine is #108).
