Bill Everett classic bondage cvr; drug story
CGC F/VF: 7.0
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.

This cover is in splendid condition considering its age, the four-color printing process is stretched to its limit on this memorable Everett design. Esoterica hounds take note, the rampant success of our recent Centaur auction proves that these gems are still a hot commodity, especially issues with such awesome covers in admirable shape.

Overstreet Guide 2018 F/VF (7.0) value = $1,213.
