Most comic book fans with even a minimal knowledge of the medium's history know of Bill Everett, creator of Sub-Mariner and co-creator of Daredevil. As Blake Bell points out in the aptly titled Amazing Mysteries: The Bill Everett Archives Vol. 1, the artist deserves far more attention and scrutiny. Everett worked on numerous comics throughout his lengthy career and this book explores his key contributions during the early Golden Age (1938-42) to titles such as Amazing Mystery Funnies, Amazing Man Comics, and Target Comics. Bell not only reprints several of the stories featuring the largely forgotten creations Skyrocket Steele, Amazing-Man, Hydro-Man, Sub-Zero Man, and others, but places Everett within the proper context of history through a brief bio of the artist during this period and notes about the individual pieces. Deserving a place in most graphic libraries, the handsome Amazing Mysteries: The Bill Everett Archives Vol. 1 successfully re-introduces the talented Everett to a new generation of readers.
