Overview

The groundbreaking paperback sees print for the first time in 25 years, with a never-before-published second volume by the late artist.In 1974, Gil Kane created Blackmark as a paperback series for Bantam Books. Kane was a comics artist specializing in super-heroes who had drawn every major character from Superman to Spider-Man. Blackmark was his attempt to go "independent" and create a series which he would own and whose creative direction he could control. The first volume of this sword & sorcery/heroic fantasy narrative, designed and published in the paperback format, has been out of print for over 25 years, and the completed second volume was never published. Fantagraphics Books is proud to collect both volumes in a single trade book format, larger than the original paperback size to better showcase Kane's elegant art.

Author Biography: Gil Kane, who passed away in 2000 at the age of 74, is considered one of the great comic book craftsmen of his generation, and is a featured character in Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.
