The Art of Walt Simonson

Walt Simonson
The Art of Walt Simonson, 1989 - Unlike other publications on comic book artists, there are no lengthy interviews, just brief introductions by Simonson, Howard Chaykin and Archie Goodwin. While his cover design falls below the quality of his interior stories, Simonson's eight-page portfolio is a stunning array of various DC characters (see interior page below). Some renditions, such as Green Lantern and the villainous Two-Face, have never been published before. The bulk of the book is comprised of some of his finest works of the bronze age. Conspicuously absent is his historic Manhunter series in Detective Comics, which was saved for a collection on its own. The reprinted stories are re-colored, but I still prefer the originals. Included in this book are: Detective Comics #450, Unknown Soldier #254, Unknown Soldier #255, Unknown Soldier #256, Star Spangled War Stories #170, Star Spangled War Stories #180, 1st Issue Special #9, Hercules Unbound #11, Hercules Unbound #12, Metal Men #45, Metal Men #46, Metal Men #47, Metal Men #48 and Metal Men #49. See today's posts or more Simonson issues. See also this blog's Walt Simonson checklist or more books.
