Artist's Edition is an award-winning line of hardcover reprint comic books published by IDW Publishing and edited by Scott Dunbier.[1][2]

Each page in an Artist's Edition series book is printed the same size as the original art board and scanned from the original art wherever possible. Additionally, while appearing to be in black and white, each page is scanned in color to show blue pencil and other corrections.
