    A Bill Everett bio? OH SNAP! I know what I’m asking for on my birthday!

    Listening to this interview reminded me of a drawing, “The Sub-Mariner Battles the Human Torch” signed by Bill Everett. Exquisite inks. I don’t know where I saw this as a kid, but I recall spending a lot of time looking at that cross-hatching with wonder:

    Thanks for the history lesson!

    Hi Adrian. That’s the first imag I remember seeing of Everett’s and I was dazzled! It’s originally from Steranko’s 1970 History of Comics books (Everett did it exclusively for Steranko) but I think I first saw it when I was about 12 in the Upper Canada College library, either in Crawford’s Encyclopedia of Comics or a Ron Goulart history book.
