DESCRIPTION

classic Everett cover
Second City Collection
Mystery Tales #40 was prominently featured on the hit TV series "Lost", making that issue quite possibly the most-famous of the run. Few fans of that series might be aware that issue #9 of Mystery Tales features a story in its back pages named "Lost!", which concerns hidden loot and a couple who are trapped in a cave for two decades, one can't help but think there may be something to this strange connection between the show and the comic. Other spooky stories in this comic include the tales "The Specimen", "Hunger", "Ashes to Ashes", and "The Man in the Morgue", add in the classic Bill Everett cover and you have a nifty little book filled with things that go bump in the night, plus that mysterious "Lost/Lost!" thing.


Artist Information

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.
