100 pages - April 2007
Our new hit mag ROUGH STUFF, celebrating the ART of creating comics, pulls out all the stops for its fourth issue! In #4, editor (and top pro inker) Bob McLEOD presents NEVER-BEFORE PUBLISHED penciled pages, preliminary sketches, detailed layouts, and unused inked versions from artists throughout comics history! Featured this issue are extensive galleries by Michael KALUTA (who also provides this issue’s new BATMAN cover, along with his preliminary art from it)! Andrew “Starman” ROBINSON, Gene “The Dean” COLAN, Howard “American Flagg” CHAYKIN, and Steve “Swamp Thing” BISSETTE! Each artist provides detailed commentaries on their work, discussing what went right and wrong with it, and giving background information to put it all into historical perspective. The feature interview this issue is with John TOTLEBEN, discussing his career from the Joe Kubert School, to Swamp Thing, Miracleman, and beyond. Plus there's a look at the recent Wonder Woman Day charity event, showing plenty of rare art from the auction, plus art critiques, before-and-after art comparisons, and more!
