From a start in 1947 at the Simon & Kirby shop, John Severin co-created the legendary Western strip American Eagle, and became an EC Comics mainstay, working with Harvey Kurtzman on MAD and Two-Fisted Tales.
In addition to a 40+ year association with Cracked magazine, his pivotal Marvel Comics work included an extended run inking Herb Trimpe on The Hulk, and teaming with sister Marie Severin to create the definitive comics version of King Kull. He freelanced for virtually every major publisher, and remained a workhorse up until his final Dark Horse mini-series at age 89.
Written by Greg Biga and multiple Eisner Award-winner Jon B. Cooke, this profusely illustrated book celebrates the centennial of the two-fisted artist's birth!
