Artists Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of the most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.

'The Michelangelo of comics.' Buscema was one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics during its 1960s and 1970s heyday, best known for his run on the The Avengers and The Silver Surfer, and for over 200 stories featuring the sword-and-sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. In addition, he penciled at least one issue of nearly every major Marvel title, including long runs on two of the company's top books, Fantastic Four and Thor.

Bill Everett Comic was an American comic book writer-artist best known for creating Namor the Sub-Mariner as well as co-creating Daredevil with writer Stan Lee for Marvel Comics. Everett fell into comics almost by accident in their very earliest days, creating the character Amazing-Man for Centaur Publications in 1939. Also in 1939 he would contribute the first Sub-Mariner story for Marvel Mystery Comics #1, the very first book from Timely Comics, which would eventually become Marvel Comics, Sub-Mariner would prove to be one of their earliest hits and Everett would continue drawing his adventures until 1949. in the 50s Everett wold continue working for what was now Atlas Comics on numerous titles, occasionally reviving Sub-Mariner. in the 60s with the explosion of the Marvel Age Everett would co-create with Stan Lee and draw the first issue of Daredevil in addition to providing work in Tales to Astonish and Strange Tales. The Sub-Mariner would return again in Tales to Astonish #85 continuing there and then in his own title, with sporadic contributions from Everett. Bill Everett died suddenly at the age of 55 in 1973.

Eugene Jules Colan was an American comic book artist best known for his work for Marvel Comics, where his signature titles include the superhero series Daredevil, the cult-hit satiric series Howard the Duck, and The Tomb of Dracula, considered one of comics' classic horror series. He co-created the Falcon, the first African-American superhero in mainstream comics, Carol Danvers, who would become Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel, and the supernatural vampire hunter Blade.
