Today's mail brought my copy of this, due out officially on November 19th. Co-published by Marvel Comics with IDW's Yoe Books, this is the very first product from Marvel that I have directly been involved with in 54 years of collecting comic books!
I'm credited, as "Bashful Booksteve," for "Research and Development." Essentially, I dug through all the Silver Age Marvels to find all the often forgotten or uncatalogued pinups, making a detailed list for Marvel so they could find the best quality copies of them, which were then brushed off, restored, cleaned-up and, in some cases, annotated for the absolute best reproduction you could imagine. It's a very impressive volume.
Ditko and Kirby, sure, but other artists you'll find within include Wallace Wood, Bill Everett, Barry Windsor-Smith, Don Heck, John Buscema, John Byrne, John Romita, Dick Ayers, and Gene Colan.
