DREW FRIEDMAN TURNS HIS KEEN EYE TOWARDS THE GREAT COMIC BOOK ALL-STARS

Featuring approximately 75 full-color portraits of the pioneering legends of American comic books, including publishers, editors, and artists from the industry’s birth in the ’30s, through the brilliant artists and writers behind EC Comics in the ’50s.

All lovingly rendered and chosen by Drew Friedman, a cartooning legend in his own right. Featuring subjects popular and obscure, men and women, as well as several pioneering African-American artists.

Each subject features a short essay by Friedman, who grew up knowing many of the subjects included (as the son of writer Bruce Jay Friedman), including Stan Lee, Harvey Kurtzman, Will Eisner, Mort Drucker, Al Jaffee, Jack Davis, Will Elder, and Bill Gaines. More names you might recognize: Barks, Crumb, Wood, Wolverton, Frazetta, Siegel & Shuster, Kirby, Cole, Ditko, WerthamÖ it’s a Hall of Fame of comic book history from the man BoingBoing.com calls ‘America’s greatest living portrait artist!’
