Charles Vess’ The Book Of Ballads And Sagas #1 – 4 | The Green Man Review

Really cool things arrive here at Green Man for review, some so cool that they barely make it out of the wrappers before being snatched up by an eager staffer. Fortunately the revised and expanded publication now known as The Book of Ballads was intended specifically by Charles Vess for me, so a staffer reluctantly delivered it to my office as soon as it came in. Fortunately, I had just finished my interview with James Stoddard, so I was back in my office and free to sit down and look at it, which I did after putting a mylar on the lovely dust jacket. Now keep in mind what we have here is a substantially revised edition from the one Vess himself released nearly seven years ago as Ballads. One solution is to use an art form that is not usually associated with such things. In this case, I speak of the comic book, or as it is more usually known these days, the graphic novel. No word has been given on when or if the last two issues will ever come out.

Charles Vess Has An Original Art Edition of The Book of Ballads

Debbie Skolnik wrote this review. How do you add a new dimension to and perhaps the enthusiasm of a new generation for the wonderful world of folk ballads and sagas? One solution is to use an art form that is not usually associated with such things. In this case, I speak of the comic book, or as it is more usually known these days, the graphic novel. Charles Vess, an extremely talented graphic artist, has done just that.

After a five year hiatus we are treated to a second Original Art Edition from Titan, this time a wonderful collection of Charles Vess doing what he does best. The introduction by Vess provides a comprehensive history of the work and its path to this edition. From there we get a table of contents, thirteen stories of original art, an extras section and to close it all out short biographies of the artist and writers. The extras section includes scripts, thumbnails, alternate art, all with notes. Blacks are fairly consistent with no gradients, but we get an endless array of cross hatching.
