Attu is another intriguing collection from the great Sam Glanzman by Dover Books. The series was originally published by 4Winds Publishing, an imprint operated by comic artist Tim Truman. Truman is an artist clearly inspired by the work of Joe Kubert and Glanzman himself and opened the door for his mentor to do something different.

I never picked up either of the two volumes from 4 Winds when they emerged in 1989 and 1990.
But somehow I did get hold of Fantastic Worlds #1 and #2 which have more Attu stories by Glanzman. Doubtless I bought them at the time because of Glanzman even though neither has the artist do the cover. His character is featured on the debut issue but the art is by Steve Busti and Al Williamson.
Rich Buckler and Joe Sinnott create a knock out for the second and final issue of the run but it has nothing to do with Glanzman's creation.
Attu is due out late this summer and gathers together (according to the solicitation) the two published volumes of the story as well as an unpublished third volume.
