(from the publisher)

In 1939, brand-new Marvel’s first-ever comic book featured an anti-hero named the Sub-Mariner, created by legendary artist Bill Everett. From the superhero and horror genre, to romance, crime, and suspense, Bill Everett was a master of the medium. Blake Bell’s follow-up to Strange & Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko, Fire and Water is the definitive biography of the man and his career. The main focus, however, will be the stunning display of artwork that few artists can match in breadth and quality- all on display in this coffee table art book that is destined to ensure Everett’s place at the table of premier comic book virtuosos.
