- Full Description
Alex Toth's magnum opus contains all three of The Genius's stories starring Jesse Bravo, knock-about pilot and reluctant swashbuckler, including the original graphic novel. More than forty years after its creation, Bravo remains a rollicking pastiche of 1930s high-adventure, replete in the visual trappings of film noir. By this point in his career Toth had stripped out all extraneous lines and detail, demonstrating complete command of his staging and chiaroscuro technique, and cementing his reputation as the medium's most sophisticated storyteller.
Also included are never-before-seen pencil roughs, preliminary drawings, and story fragments, as well as Toth's own coloring samples for an edition that never saw print, and--freed from storage after 40-some-years--the coloring for what was intended to be Bravo's original 1975 first printing in France! It's not just a comics collection, it's a capital "E" Event -- the ultimate Bravo for Adventure, published by special arrangement with the Toth family!
"The finest artist that comics ever had." -Gil Kane.
