Jon Berk CollectionFor a fan of the Man Without Fear, what could be cooler than an original art page from the first issue of his very first appearance, including his well-known origin story. This is an awesome example of comicbook history, and you can be the next owner of this incredible investment piece. The panels on this page skillfully detail the events leading up to the untimely death of "Battling" Jack Murdock, shown here discussing his "boxing" career with the Fixer, while his son, Matt, simultaneously showcases his powers for the reader's benefit. The strong storytelling skills of Bill Everett are on full display here, his twenty-plus years in the industry culminating in the assured pencil-work that ties this incredible page together, while the obvious ink work of Steve Ditko adds a dash of panache to this historical treasure. This is one of the best pieces of Silver Age art from the Jon Berk Collection and we are sure it will see intense competition in this auction.

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.
