    From "Fire & Water" (which I received recently):

    Anybody ever try the Everett Archives that got put out a few years ago? I've been interested in them for a while but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Also, while looking up info for each volume, I came across Fantagraphics site, and there you can view a video and slide show of each book which I found pretty helpful because I had just, kind of on a whim and chance, ordered some of the fantagraphics Ditko collections. After viewing the books on their site, I feel a LOT more confident in my purchase.

    If you look here and scroll down some, you can see the video of the first volume of the Bill Everett Archives:

    I received my books. LOVE them. Great quality, same size as a comic book, and what I like about Fantagraphic books (that is different from MMWs or DC Archives) is that it seems to be almost an exact reprint. Coloring is touched up some, but not the extent of a MMW or Archives book).

    I read that he inked the thor figure on the cover of the 1968 tales of asgard special.He was one of the best to ink Kirby.I beleave in that bio book, it is mentioned,by his daughter, that he became an acoholic at age 12. He still managed to have a long great career, through dying rather young.Subby ment an great deal to him.

    Definitely an undersung artist; but, alcoholism did affect his later work and his ability to get work. In that, he is much like Wally Wood, whose work suffered under a combination of alcoholism and poor health (which both influenced the alcohol and was a byproduct of it).

    Namor's legacy has probably more to do with consistency of character. To put it in terms of pro wrestling, he had more face and heel turns than just about any character in comics. He is best as a "'tweener," an anti-hero. His devotion to his kingdom puts him at odds with others, including our world. That's not an easy sell, even when done well. It also hasn't helped that he often fell into less skilled hands than Everett.

    The subby book, after it was announced inside issue 65, that he had died, itself died a mere 7 issues later. IF he had lived another 4-5 years, doing the book, I think it would have hit 100.As is, it's a miracle he didn't die back in March of 1969, when he went on a bender and split his head open from a fall.

    Surprised that there's no mention of his work on the Hulk in Tales To Astonish in this thread!
