Summary

This book collects over 200 pages of this never-before-reprinted work by Bill Everett. Edited and compiled by best-selling author and comic-book historian Blake Bell, this volume follows the format of Bell's Steve Ditko Archives series; never-before-reprinted, beautifully restored, full-color stories from one of comic books' greatest visionaries and most accomplished artists. Also includes an introduction by Bell that delves even deeper into Everett's life, fiery personality, and the history of the era. The resultant package enhances Everett's place in history as one of the first and best comic-book creators of all time.

"This volume provides an illuminating look at the artist's numerous attempts at catching Sub-Marineresque lightning in a bottle for a second time, a task that mostly eluded him. The comics studios of the golden age were product mills that threw any idea against the wall in hope it would stick, and Everett did much the same. Forgotten sci-fi and superhero creations, as well as forays into westerns, historical retellings, and crime comics, populate this loaded volume, which reads like it fell straight out of some four-color twilight zone." - Publishers Weekly
