    Volume 1 - 1st printing.

    Story and art by Mark Schultz.

    Following his acclaimed Various Drawings art book series, Carbon serves as the first of a new series assembling the best recent graphic works of Mark Schultz. The element carbon, common yet versatile, is the binder at the base of life on Earth as well as the source of the rich blacks that run through Mark Schultz's drawings. Similarly, the book Carbon binds an astonishing array of illustrative art rendered in brush and ink, graphite and carbon pencil, and it also introduces more color than ever before through the artist's increased experimentation with watercolor as an atmospheric element.

    Softcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 56 pages, full color.

    Cover price $24.95.

    Volume 2 - 1st printing.

    Story and art by Mark Schultz.

    Carbon 2 follows its predecessor by three years, and in those years Mark Schultz's work has become something more solid, and at times almost sculptural, as he continues to refine his attempts to put to paper the visions he sees in his head. Of course there are plenty of lovely warrior women, including more in the Pulpette series, as well as portraits of his Xenozoic characters, Hannah Dundee and Jack Tenrec, negotiating dire straits. There is also sword and sorcery, ancient mythic tableaus, and otherworldly science fiction to satisfy the most diverse tastes. And there are preliminaries and rejected pieces from Storms at Sea, and, (spoiler alert) design work and character studies from Mark's new in-progress Xenozoic graphic novel. Qua hoon!

    Softcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 160 pages, full color.

    Cover price $24.95.

    Volume 3 - 1st printing.

    Story and art by Mark Schultz.

    In this entirely new collection of Mark Schultz's works-most of which have not been previously published, the Xenozoic world takes center stage. Schultz presents preliminary drawings and concept designs from his upcoming Xenozoic graphic novel, placed in context with an introductory text that addresses his decisions behind the new art. Plenty of poster-style images featuring Jack and Hannah are included as well. Carbon3 also features images from Schultz's Storms at Sea and his depictions of myth and pulp adventure.

    Softcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 56 pages, full color.

    Cover price $24.95.

    Volume 4 - 1st printing.

    Story and art by Mark Schultz. Foreword by H. Schultz.

    Mark Schultz unleashed!

    Inspired by the otherworldly pulp stories of his childhood in the 1950s and '60s, Schultz continues to draw inspiration from the adventure, fantasy and science-fiction genres of that imaginative period. With its visions of romanticized space exploration, this time continues to be a primary influence on his artwork and in this new collection, where the focus is on life on other worlds. While many of these new visions were created purely for his own satisfaction, Carbon 4 also features Schultz's most recent commissions and commercial illustrations.

    As always, Xenozoic's Jack and Hannah are featured prominently.

    Softcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 56 pages, full color.

    Cover price $24.95.
