Dubbed by The New York Times as the "Michelangelo of Mad Magazine," Basil Wolverton sold his first nationally published work at the age of 16. Wolverton's work has been published by Marvel, DC, Mad, and a variety of other publications, and in 1991 he was posthumously inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.
We are excited to reveal the cover design for the first of two volumes recounting the life of this varied and unique cartoonist: Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1. The book will collect all of Wolverton's non-humorous comic stories and a substantial selection of his humorous comics, alongside dozens of pages of unpublished artwork, unsold features, and never-before-seen correspondence, including rejection letters! The book is available for pre-order now with an estimated December 2014 delivery.
