Heroic Tales: The Bill Everett Archives Vol. 2 - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesBlake BellBill Everett 29 Aug 2013 11:14 AM

"Heroic Tales is a wonderful anthology of material from several different eras of Everett's career. After an insightful introduction, editor Blake Bell presents 150 or so pages of comics... Bill Everett was a tremendous and thoroughly unique talent in comics art. Heroic Tales reminds us that Everett's career was long, but his talent was obvious. ...[T]his is a delightful book." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

"These publications rode the superhero wave initiated by the companies that would later become DC and Marvel, and while they didn’t withstand the test of time, they’re still a kick to read, buoyed by their no-nonsense action plots and by Everett’s propensity for drawing narrow figures poised to commit acts of violence." – Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

"What’s exciting for me about this book is watching Everett develop as an artist and storyteller and figure out the medium in relatively rapid fashion.... What you see here are the glimmers of an artist struggling to comprehend the potential of this relatively new medium [and] how he can push it to match his own interests." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6
