From Cover to Cover (in Color) March 10, 2007

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Comics.

On the left, the cover image to the original publication of Flight Volume One, by series editor Kazu Kibuishi. On the right, Kazu’s reworking of the same image for the book’s re-release. It’s interesting how the latter is at once the same and very different from its predecessor.

I neglected to mention in my prior post on Flight that the series was first published under the banner of Image Comics. However, with the third volume onwards the title has moved over to Random House, initially under Ballantine Books and thereafter under the Villard imprint. Now that Villard will begin releasing the first two volumes of Flight as well, Kazu revisited the cover to the first one to give it the same look as that of later installments, obviously with amazing results.

The reissue will be available come April, for which Amazon is already accepting orders. The world’s largest bookseller also has the original cover still in stock, which should be good news to the purists out there.
