The complete works of Seth Fischer

There was a comic book artist name Seth Fisher whose art was amazing and unique. He died unexpectedly at a young age in 2006. Since then I've been meaning to get around to collecting up all of his relatively small body of work. In the past couple years I've moved away from singles into the world of just collected editions (trade paperback, hardcovers, graphic novels, etc.). So it was frustrating trying to figure out where all of his singles would fit into my library. The other day I decided that I would do what I saw some other kid do this year at Emerald City Con: bind all of the singles into a collection myself. (The kid I saw do it at Emerald City had all the of Grendel single issues bound into this huge tome in Grendel chronological order, not publication order.)

So here's his complete known published body of work. Well, he also designed 'hub' for Myst III: Exile, but I can't really bind that into a book, now can I?

I also know of at least one pinup he did in the back of one of The ity trades. I'll have to decide what length I'll go to get ALL of his published work. Hmm... If you know of anything not on this list that he did (however big or small) let me know.

jay. the pinup is of the doctor and a wacky cityscape behind him in the back of The Absolute ity volume 2. vicki. thanks! For what it's worth, the story he did in the Big Book of Vice was the one on Smoking, and the story he did in the Big Book of the 70's was the one on Disco. Yup, that’s the list as far as I know it. If you find out which issue of ity Seth did a pinup for please post it. It may be that it was just in one of the bound/collections type things. DC should also be collecting the Vertigo Pop (Seth’s Tokyo along with the Bangkok, together) sometime this year. They recently contacted Seth’s mom for reprint rights. Good luck with your collection! jay
