Today I will be doing a new, original cover for an "ominbus" edition of NEXT
MEN IDW has planned for next year. This will be the first time I have drawn
any of those characters in what is probably well over ten years.

Should be an interesting exercise. Hope it doesn't take me long to "find"
them!

Do you have any idea what the pose will be?  How will you encapsulate (more than) the last half of the series with one shot?

Can't wait to see this John. I hope it can rekindle the pleasure of drawing and working with these characters. You never know...

Hm....I take it IDW must be happy with the way the "phonebook" sold if they're going with the omnibus treatment.

If there's enough interest in an omnibus treatment, it might mean we're real close to a new ongoing, right?

I've still never read Next Men, but I'll be buying the phonebook knowing there's a possible omnibus edition anyway. If it's half as good as I've heard on here, then by the time I'm finished reading all the collected editions I'm going to be craving more too.

Besides, if the omnibus editions are colour (which is likely) then I'll probably shuffle the black and white phonebook off the shelf and into the hands of other potential readers. Always fun to have someone else come aboard the journey with you.

Wow.  Considering how popular the series is with board members I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been a Next Men commission yet.

I picked up the Death of Superman Omnibus edition, expecting it to be heavy -- but the paper stock they use is very light.

I'm VERY excited about this news.

I can smell NEW Next Men stories coming......

(or is that just breakfast cooking?)

Hope you have a good time on Memory Lane, JB. I'm surprised these characters haven't been commissioned more - get on it, commissioners! (or shall i call you all Commissioners Gordons?)

IDW will have my shekels for this one.

If it's in color, I'll probably pick up this omnibus edition as well. I hope to
have the original issues bound some day, and my phonebook(s) will be
passed on to others in hopes that I might "trigger" some new JBNM readers.

Pete, I bought the phonebook and I have no regrets, it is a huge bargain at approx $15 i got it from Amazon and its 436 pages.  Its the most enjoyable comic book I've read in YEARS.  I can't wait for volume 2.  Seeing JB's art in B&W is awesome.

This is as good a place as any to ask - what does IDW stand for?
