Get A First Look Inside Tobin And Coover’s ‘Bandette Vol. 1: Presto!’ Hardcover From Dark Horse [Preview]

Fans found out about Monkeybrain‘s plans to partner with Image and IDW for print collections of its ComiXology offerings back in February, and now it seems Dark Horse will join the fray on November 6 with Bandette Vol. 1: Presto! Collecting the first five issues of Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover’s Eisner Award-nominated Bandette series(for Best New Series, Best Penciller/Inker, Best Coloring and Best Digital Comic) starring perhaps the most charming young superheroic thief to grace either the printed or digital page since Lupin III. In anticipation of the hardcover, Dark Horse Comics has provided ComicsAlliance with a first look at “Daniel’s Story,” an original prose story just for the hardcover collection written by Tobin and featuring spot illustrations by Coover.

On top of packing the first five issues of Bandette and “Daniel’s Story,” the 144-page Presto! will also be home to a special script excerpt, a “Making of the art” section, a foreward by Paul Cornell (Saucer Country, Wolverine) and special “Urchin’s Tales” backups by Steve Lieber, Jonathan Case, Erika Moen, Alberto J. Alburquerque, Tina Kim, Jennifer Meyer, Rich Ellis, and Mitch Gerads. Usually that much talent in one place warrants a special superhero team name, but in this case, the assembly seems more like happy allies akin to Bandette’s own community of friends and admirers, no?

You can get a first look at two of Coover’s never-before-seen “Daniel’s Story” illustrations from Bandette Vol. 1: Presto! hardcover below.
