An in-depth look at a unique comic book master.
From the Publisher:
Creeping Death From Neptune is a comprehensive edition of Basil Wolverton?s non-humorous comics work. While it presents an overview of Wolverton?s entire career, it focuses primarily on his 1938-1952 science fiction and horror comics. Apart from Spacehawk, which has recently been catalogued in a separate Fantagraphics volume, every known story from this period, both published and unpublished, will be shown in its entirety. The narrative begins at Wolverton?s childhood and traces the events leading up to his first serious comics work, the rejected 1929 syndicated strip, Marco of Mars, then proceeds through Steve Grover of the Stratosphere Patrol, Vultures of the Void, Meteor Murphy, Space Patrol and Rockman, his final intense group of 1950-1952 stories for Marvel and publisher Stanley Morse.The book ends with a summation of Wolverton?s career after leaving ? and occasionally returning to ? comics, though never again as a non-humorous artist. Existing correspondence, pay ledgers, and personal diaries shedding intimate insight into the artist?s career will be examined in depth. The author has gone to great lengths to uncover as much unpublished art as possible, including preliminary drawings, syndicated strips, comic book work, and rejected covers for Amazing Mystery Funnies and Amazing Man Comics.
