This is the sequel to caricaturist Drew Friedman’s collection of portraits of famous comics creators.
Spanning the birth of the industry to its first few decades, this book has approximately 100 full-color portraits of the legends of American comic books—publishers, editors, and artists. Its subjects are popular and obscure, men and women, and it includes several pioneering artists of color.
“This large book has 100 meticulous color paintings of people who were involved in the early days of comic books, painted by Drew Friedman, the great portraitist of our time. The two volume Heroes set, is scholarly and popular at the same time, and represents a milestone in the early history of comic books. Drew Friedman himself is a hero of comics for making it.” — boingboing
