  • From Daredevil to Dracula, from Batman to Brother Voodoo, from Howard the Duck to Stewart the Rat, Secrets in the Shadows: The Art & Life of Gene Colan is the ultimate retrospective on one of comics' all-time unique artists. Featuring rare childhood drawings, photos, recently-discovered wartime illustrations, and original art and sketches from throughout his nearly 60-year career, this book offers new insight on the inspirations, challenges, and successes that shaped Gene 'the Dean' Colan.
  • Among the highlights are: A comprehensive overview of Gene's glory days at Marvel Comics! Marv Wolfman, Don McGregor and other favorite writers share plot/script samples and anecotes of their Colan collaborations! Tom Palmer, Steve Leialoha, and other noted artists show how they approached the daunting task of inking Colan's famously nuanced penciled pages! Plus: a new portfolio of never-before-seen collaborations between Gene and such masters as John Byrne, Michael Kaluta, and George Perez, and all-new artwork created specifically for this book by Gene Colan, who is still inspired by the Secrets in the Shadows.

From Booklist :

Colan was one of Marvel Comics' key artists in the late 1960s and the 1970s, best known for a lengthy run on the superhero title Daredevil and his stint on the groundbreaking satire Howard the Duck. He is most closely associated with The Tomb of Dracula, which ran for seven years in the seventies. He fit uneasily in Marvel's lineup of superhero artists, for his realism ran counter to his peers' stylized approaches, and his mastery of light and darkness seemed less suited to the genre than, say, the bold simplicity of a Jack Kirby. Colan's star waned as fans' tastes changed, but he continued to work steadily in the field, even when that meant wasting his talents drawing Archie. Nearing 80, he remains at the drawing board today. Field, a longtime fan, thoroughly traces Colan's career (the segment on the 1950s comics industry is particularly fascinating) through biography, interviews, and page after page of everything from original comic-book pages to previously unseen fan commissions.
