AMAZING MYSTERY FUNNIES Volume 2 #2
Publisher:
Centaur
Grade:
CGC VF: 8.0
Bill Everett began his career in advertising, and bounced around the commercial art industry for a few years before landing his first job in comics over at Centaur Publishing, where his talents easily translated over to the burgeoning art form. His fluid designs and ability to create eye-catching covers immediately earned him a place in the history of the industry, going on to create Namor, the Sub-Mariner and Marvel's Daredevil later on in life. His skills are evident in this early cover design for Amazing Mystery Funnies v2 #2, all of the Golden Age tropes are in place, bondage, woman in peril, scary villain in bizarre costume, and weird gadgetry, all rendered with panache and assuredness, this is one of Everett's most-beloved covers from his days at Centaur.

Surviving the decades in stunning VF condition this cover just glows. The colors are impossibly strong, shining out proudly for all to see, the yellows are warm, reds hot, and even the small details like the blush on Sari Marston's cheeks stand out clearly. Nothing in the hobby is quite as pleasing as finding a Golden Age comic in such amazing condition.
