    We see the origins of EC comics (GW) with Chaykin's stand-ins for Gaines, Kurtzman and Feldstein. Also we have Jeff Thomas-Jack Davis, Peter Vance-Wally Wood and Joel Pitkin-John Severin (I think, could be Will Elder)
    It's still a realistic retelling of the behind the scenes comic book history. Depressing, but always interesting. This is a necessary book, even if we don't want to see how badly our artistic heroes were treated.
    One of the things that is fun in this book is Chaykin's versions of real comics, like the EC line up or Archie. The pages of the Simon/Kirby (and others) are really well done.
    Mine is in the mail. I'm looking forward to it.

    Issue #2 had a nice bit with "Julie Schwartz" telling "Kane" and "Infantino" they are restarting the Superhero books.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!
