Book Review: Tim Sale: Black And White - Revised And Expanded

Tim Sale: Black And White - Revised And Expanded

I only got to know Tim Sale through the paintings he did for Heroes, the TV series. The paintings were cool, so is this book.

This is a thick hardcover book without a dust jacket. There are 272 pages, mostly printed in black and white, with the last few pages devoted to some coloured pieces.

The book is written by Richard Starkings in a question and answer format throughout. It explores the life of Tim Sale, his inspiration, the many projects he has done so far, how he got to provide artwork for Heroes and other interesting stuff. The chapters are categorized primarily by his projects. There's quite a lot to read.

There are lots of sketches, comic panels, commissions and art done for fans at comic-con, etc. He dislike Johnny Depp but still drew Jack Sparrow for a fan. Most of his finished inks aren't coloured. Even the paintings that were used on Heroes were coloured by Dave Stewart - I didn't know that!

My first impression when I first flipped through the book was,"Hey, it's quite worth the money." That's probably because of the savings when printing without colour.

But hey, it's really pretty worth the money.

I'm waiting for a Tim Sale

I'm waiting for a Tim Sale coffee table book which has all of his Heroes art presented properly, both original black and white and coloured versions.

Either that, or, since that might not be enough for a full book, a good making-of Heroes book, which would include all his art - again, it needs to be presented properly.

Maybe Titan will do a Heroes book at some point - if they did one in the glossy format of their Firefly books, that'd be pretty awesome.
