Overview

  • 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 anecotes 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.
