Dark Horse Comics Plans Second Printing for The Art of Doug Sneyd

Doug's editor at Dark Horse Comics just emailed Doug that because of strong sales since the launch of The Art of Doug Sneyd mid-July, a second printing has been ordered.

The 248-page hardcover features over 270 of Doug's full-page color cartoons that have appeared in Playboy; his first cartoon was published in September 1964.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner wrote the Foreword; Lynn Johnston, creator of For Better or For Worse, wrote the Introduction.

The book is organized into themes, and Doug's eleven chapter introductions feature anecdotes and personal reflections. He also shares his creative process by including a number of original gag roughs and lead-up pencil and color roughs.

Dark Horse Comics is the largest independent comic book publisher in the U.S.
