Joe Sinnott is a true living
legend. During his 56-plus-year career in comic books, he has worked in every
genre, and for almost every publisher. As a young artist in the 1940s, he started
with Stan Lee at Timely Comics, then branched off to Charlton Comics, Treasure
Chest, and Dell as a top penciller. But the creation of the Fantastic Four in
1961 by Stan and Jack Kirby ushered in the Marvel Age of Comics, and Joe began
a long and storied association with Marvel as its top inker.
His deft touch can be seen
on almost every book published by Marvel in the ’60s to the late 1980s, and
today, Stan and Joe continue that tradition with the Sunday Spider-Man comic
strip. Brush Strokes With Greatness celebrates the storybook career of the
versatile artist, as he demonstrates his passion for his craft. In it, Joe
shares his experiences working on Marvel's leading titles, memories of working
with Lee and Kirby, and rare and unpublished artwork from his personal files.
This book features dozens of
colleagues and co-workers paying tribute to Joe and his amazing body of work,
plus an extended Art Gallery, and a Checklist of Joe's career. Don't miss this
once-in-a-lifetime celebration of all things Sinnott, which includes a Foreword
by Stan Lee, and an Afterword by Mark Evanier.
