FPG publishes the long-awaited Mike Ploog retrospective art book, The Art of Ploog. FPG is proud to announce the release of 'The Art of Ploog,' a comprehensive art book on the work of Mike Ploog. This oversize 9' x 12', 320-page retrospective will cover every aspect of Ploog's career, from his earliest days of working with 'Leatherneck Magazine,' while still a young man serving in the Marines, to his extremely popular work in comics and film, right up through his latest work on 'Goliath.' 'THE ART OF PLOOG' will contain, quite literally, hundreds of pieces of art, as well as commentary by the likes of Ralph Bakshi, John Carpenter, Frank Oz, Roy Thomas, and the master himself; Mike Ploog. You will find Ploog's best known artwork contained in this book. Included is work he did for Marvel comics (on titles such as 'Frankenstein,' 'Ghost Rider,' 'Man-Thing,' 'Planet of the Apes,' and 'Werewolf By Night'), as well as a wide range of his film work on animated features (such as 'Lord of theRings,' 'Shrek,' and 'Wizards') and live-action features (including 'Little Shop of Horrors,' 'John Carpenter's THE THING,' and 'X-MEN'). The book will also contain many of his most popular paintings; paintings that were created for his own fantasy art trading card series; as well as paintings he worked on for the collectible card games 'Guardians' and 'Magic the Gathering,' most of which have never been reproduced larger than trading card size. This is the ultimate collection spanning Ploog's entire career.
