Publisher White Sale/Closeout Price! Recommended. By John Coates. Foreword by Stan Lee. Afterword by Beau Smith. Meticulously researched here is Don Heck’s 40-year career, including his time at Atlas with Stan's pre-hero stories, DC, Dell, Gold Key, his pre-code horror work in the early 1950s (on titles like Horrific, Danger and Weird Terror), and as "ghost" artist on Lee Falk's The Phantom newspaper strip. From personal recollections from Don's surviving family, long-time friends, and industry legends, to rare interviews with Heck himself (where he discusses his career, artistic technique, triumphs, frustrations, and love of drawing), this book is full of insight into--and first-hand anecdotes from--the early days of Marvel Comics.

Meticulously researched here is Don Heck’s 40-year career, including his time at Atlas with Stan's pre-hero stories, DC, Dell, Gold Key, his pre-code horror work in the early 1950s (on titles like Horrific, Danger and Weird Terror), and as "ghost" artist on Lee Falk's The Phantom newspaper strip. From personal recollections from Don's surviving family, long-time friends, and industry legends, to rare interviews with Heck himself (where he discusses his career, artistic technique, triumphs, frustrations, and love of drawing), this book is full of insight into--and first-hand anecdotes from--the early days of Marvel Comics.

Don Heck is considered an "artist's artist," respected by peers, and co-creator of Marvel Comics characters Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Black Widow, and known for his long stint on Marvel Comics' team book, The Avengers. It also features an unbiased analysis of sales on Don's DC Comics titles and an extensive art gallery.

To say this is profusely illustrated would be an understatement. Hundreds of pages of art, in both b&w and full color, are featured here as the story of his career unfolds. He was an instrumental part of Stan's bullpen, from the pre-hero monster comics to the first glory days creating Iron Man and the Avengers, to the wild 1970s and work at DC on Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and more iconic titles.
