Description
Long before Marvel Comics became a pop culture powerhouse publishing famous superheroes like Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man, the publisher's first comic book featured a daring new anti-hero called the Sub-Mariner, created by legendary graphic artist Bill Everett in 1939. An angry sea king who terrorized mankind (until he joined with the Allies against the Axis powers in World War II), the Sub-Mariner continues to be one of the pinnacles of the Marvel Universe of superheroes. Beyond superheroes, Everett was also one of the top illustrators of horror comics in the 1950s, and a master of such genres as Westerns, romance, crime, and suspense comics—all of which are on display in this gorgeous oversized retrospective, which includes full-sized color covers, sketches, production drawings, nuanced portraits of starlets like Lucille Ball, and dozens of personal cartoons and illustrated notes that Everett sent to friends.

"A true testament to a man who lived comics throughout his entire life and loved it with a passion.... It's important not only to remember the characters, but the men behind them. [Blake] Bell's book here on the life and times of Bill Everett ... is a testament to that."—Collected Comics Library
