Artist: Don Heck
Don Heck remains one of comics' legendary names, considered an "artist's artist," respected by peers, and beloved by fans. Author John Coates has meticulously researched and chronicled information on Don's storied 40-year career, including his time at DC, Dell, Gold Key, 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, this book is full of insight into the early days of Marvel Comics. It also features an extensive art gallery, a Foreword by Stan Lee, and an Afterword by Beau Smith.
