Bonus materials! Yes – each volume comes with all-new background material created especially for the Definitive Collection. Plenty of behind-the-scenes action with the likes of ‘Meanwhile, in the Offices of Marvel UK’ and ‘Creating The IDW-Verse’, plus Sketchbooks, Cover Galleries, Commentaries, Character Profiles, Story So Fars and more. With new input from the likes of me, Chris Ryall, Andrew Wildman, E.j. Su, James Roberts and many others, and in-depth creator profiles, each collection (as well as being part of the whole) is very much its own self-contained entity (with a contextual introduction). Where possible, we’re sourcing visual materials to go along with these features that are exclusive to the DefG1 collection – like Ted McKeever’s art for an early iteration of Hearts of Steel, part of my original pitch for RG1, or unseen Andrew Wildman cover sketch variants. We’re layering on the extra value with a trowel!
