If you’ve been on io9 before—or hell, the internet at large—you’ve probably seen the gorgeous poster work of British artist Jock. Or maybe you’ve seen it in comic series like The Losers, Wytches, or his work on Batman and Judge Dredd. Now the artist is releasing a whole book filled with his amazing work, and we’ve got a sneak peek.
Collecting insight from the artist (real name Mark Simpson) alongside samples of both his unpublished sketches and published art, The Art of Jock is a celebration of the artist’s vivid style, in partnership with Mondo—where many of his poster tributes to pop culture history have been released—and Insight Editions.
The book also includes samples of early sketch ideas for some of his art, as well as commentary from frequent collaborators such as Scott Snyder and Alex Garland. Check out a few of the incredible pieces inside the book, making their debut here on io9.
The Art of Jock is out tomorrow, September 13th.
