Why should you buy the Bill Everett Archives vol. 2?

1) It features Bill Everett at his most refined. We finish off the Golden Age of Comics hero material, and then move right into his work done at the peak of his career, from the 1940s right until his passing in the 1970s.

2) Get a sampling of his pre-Code horror material published by Marvel in the early 1950s. This volume features SEVEN stories from 1950-52 of Everett at his horrific best!

3) The variety of the work. See Everett draw horror, romance, humour (on his super-rare Cracked Magazine material), adventure, war, western...and Bing Crosby! There's lots of work here by Everett that I guarantee you've never seen before!

4) Almost 7000 words detailing Everett's career, including never-before-seen quotes from Everett about working with Marvel Comics in its first days back in 1939-42!
