From Daredevil to Dracula, from Batman to Brother Voodoo, from Howard the Duck to Stewart the Rat, Secrets in the Shadows: The Art & Life of Gene Colan is the ultimate retrospective on one of comics’ all-time unique artists. Featuring rare childhood drawings, photos, recently-discovered wartime illustrations, and original art and sketches from throughout his nearly 60-year career, this book offers new insight on the inspirations, challenges and successes that shaped Gene ‘the Dean’ Colan. Among the highlights are: A comprehensive overview of Gene’s glory days at Marvel Comics! Marv Wolfman, Don McGregor and other favorite writers share plot/script samples and anecdotes of their Colan collaborations! Tom Palmer, Steve Leialoha and other noted artists show how they approached the daunting task of inking Colan’s famously nuanced penciled pages! Plus: a new portfolio of never-before-seen collaborations between Gene and such masters as John Byrne, Michael Kaluta and George Perez, and all-new artwork created specifically for this book by Gene Colan, who is still inspired by the “Secrets in the Shadows.” The Deluxe Hardcover Edition is limited to 1000 copies, and features 16 extra black-and-white pages and 8 extra color pages, plus custom endleaves and dustjacket. Written by award-winning journalist Tom Field, who was given unprecedented access to the Colan family’s insights and archives, this book paints an intimate portrait of one of comics’ most inimitable talents. 192 page hardcover with 16 color pages - by Tom Field
