The 1939 creation of the Sub-Mariner for the first issue of Marvel
Comics assures 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 the past
50 years. And producing over 400 additional pages of
superhero-related work in the very early days of the Golden Age of
Comics (1938-42) makes Bill Everett a legend. This book collects
over 200 pages of this never-before-reprinted work from titles such
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 great vintage
Everett characters such as Amazing-Man, Hydroman, Skyrocket Steele,
Sub-Zero, The Chameleon, and many more, all produced by Everett s
shop Funnies, Inc. for such clients as Centaur, Novelty Press, and
Eastern Color, and all displaying Everett s brilliant cartooning
and energetic storytelling. Edited and compiled by best-selling
author and comic-book historian Blake Bell (Strange and Stranger:
The World of Steve Ditko), Amazing Mysteries: The Bill Everett
Archives is a stunning companion to Bell s 2010 critically
acclaimed Everett biography and art book, Fire and Water: Bill
Everett, The Sub-Mariner and the Birth of Marvel Comics. This
