    Brush With Passion: The Art of Dave Stevens Slipcase Limited Edition Hardcover with Slipcase (Underwood Books, 2008). This wonderful slipcased signed limited edition was intended to be limited to 800 copies, but tragically the great artist's deteriorating health limited the signed edition even further - to just 235 copies. Signed and numbered by Stevens on the first page, the book follows the fan-favorite artist's beginnings as a comic book artist and through his storied career including his work on the film The Rocketeer, and his storyboards for Raiders of the Lost Ark and Michael Jackson's Thriller video. Bettie Page's friendship is discussed and many of his "good girl" pin-up paintings and previously unpublished artwork are featured. Includes commentary by such comic book icons as Todd Schorr, Richard Hescox, Michael William Kaluta, and William Stout. Introduction by Jim Steranko. In Excellent condition, with the original shrinkwrap still covering the book. It has been opened, but the shrinkwrap is still in place everywhere except the spine.
