J. Scott Campbell's New Hardcover Sketchbooks Available!

Today in The Cube:

J. Scott Campbell, famed for blasting onto the comic scene in the early 1990s with Gen 13 and for continuing his work with the much-lauded Danger Girl comic for the Image Cliffhanger imprint and now with a massive amount of excellent covers, has just released this year's hardcover sketchbooks on his website, the J. Scott Campbell Store! The first, called White Hot, collects a number of sketches of famous female characters, including Buffy, Dejah Thoris, Vampirella, the Danger Girls, and others. The second, MARVELous, collects work he did for - who else? - Marvel Comics.
Those two sketchbooks follow his first set of three hardcover sketchbooks, Code Orange, Monster Green, and Blue Beauties. He's also produced chapbook-style softcover sketchbooks over the past few years, some of which are also still available on the site.
He's also announced his new 2012 Fairytale Fantasies calendar. Campbell has been producing these for the past few years, and they've proved very popular (and controversial) as he takes heroines from fairytales and other literary sources and interprets them in his own inimitable fashion.
If you're not familiar with Campbell's work, you should be - check out his DeviantArt page, which he updates fairly frequently; he also maintains an active presence on Facebook.
