Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 12.38.15 AM

2000AD took some photos at Steve Yeowell's house when they went to collate and collect the pages for Zenith Phase One: The Apex Edition (the "Apex" title is a pun for this edition and not a new line of titles from 2000AD by the way), and kindly agreed to share them with us. They found that Yeowell had:

…kept all the pages from Phase One, never selling any of them, so the Apex Edition will contain every page, looking exactly as Steve drew it and at full size (475 x 365 mm). The photos give you an idea of just what an undertaking this has been for us and Steve – a thing of beauty is a joy forever, as they say!

There's also a special bookplate edition up for pre-order from 2000AD's website here, and the standard edition will be available exclusively from Diamond in both UK/Ireland and North America.

Here are several of the joy-inducing photos:
