Creating the Sub-Mariner for the first issue of Marvel Comics in
1939 assures writer/artist Bill Everett a place in history.
Co-creating Daredevil, the Man Without Fear, for Marvel Comics in
1964 gave Everett a link to one of the most popular superheroes of

superhero-related work in the very early days of the Golden Age of
Comics (1938-42) makes Bill Everett a legend. Heroic Comics: The
Bill Everett Archives Vol. 2 collects over 200 pages of
never-before-reprinted work from such titles as Amazing Mystery
Funnies (1938), Amazing-Man Comics (1939), Target Comics (1940),
Heroic Comics (1940), and Blue Bolt Comics (1940). These titles
feature an endless array of vintage Everett characters such
Amazing-Man, Hydroman, Skyrocket Steele, The Chameleon and many
more, all produced by Everett s shop Funnies, Inc. for such clients
as Centaur, Novelty Press, and Eastern Color. This book also
features, reprinted for the first time, the rarest of Everett
material, his romance work from the early 1950s for Eastern Color
on titles such as New Heroic Comics (1950/51) and Personal Love
(1953). All of the stories within display Everett s brilliant
cartooning and energetic storytelling growing by leaps and bounds.
