SCAN REQUEST: X-Men Age of Apocalypse Ashcan

Post by JephYork » Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:16 pm

Does anyone own this? It's one of two "X-Men Ashcan" comics published in 1994, but this one is a trailer for the Age of Apocalypse event.

Marvel wants to reprint it in the upcoming "X-Men: Age of Apocalypse Prelude" TPB, but we need an internal reference scan. Can anyone help out?

We'd need 600 dpi .tif files. Marvel also specified that they should be "as flat as you can", which I think implies that this mini-book has some kind of glued binding that might make scanning a bit annoying.

Please post here if you can help out, or drop me a line at jephyork at yahoo.com. Thanks!

I got it. Let me know when you need it. Do they want the interior of it or just the cover?

Every single page. And they need it really soon. Can you do it in the next few days and get it to me by Friday or over the weekend?

Please leave a little blank space around the edges of each scan -- don't crop all the way down to the edges. And like they said, please open this sucker up as wide as you can to scan every single possible millimeter of the art in the margin.

Thanks very much!!! I'll put your name in the book's credits with a Special Thanks.
