Dude, I am so starving for anything cool from the Golden age of comics That's why I was so up for this book to come out! So, like a good little ol' school comic book fan-boy, I ordered my copy of HEROIC TALES VOL.2 and waited for it to arrive!

And arrived it did....I was really looking forward to seeing an in-depth look at Bill Everett's: HEROIC TALES book that's supposed to have showcased his work on super heroes, cowboys, detectives, humor and romance comics; and, of course, all of these comic book genres I'm a super-big fan of!

Looking at the first part of this book, I really got a big kick out of Bill Everett's awesome stories and cool artwork! I love the cover of this book, too!

Unfortunately and sad to say, instead of giving us more cool adventures of the water powered avenger, HYDROMAN; or the multi-super powered,THE AMAZING MAN; or the daring cowboy hero, BULLS-EYE BILL; a good portion of this book is spent on Bill Everett's work that he did on horror comics and his homages to horror films. Horror comics are a genre of comics that I'm not a big fan of at all and that do not sit in my collection whatsoever. For me, I'd rather have had these pages, that were invested on horror, dedicated to more of Bill Everett's super hero adventures or of his spectacular pin-up artwork instead.

Thus, in a little disappointment, my 3 star rating for this book is given, true believers!

However, this is just me. I'm sure that there's going to be millions of other comic book lovers out there who will joyously buy and love the living daylights out of this book and give it a higher rating. than I did.

Great follow-up to the first volume, presenting again a bunch of Golden Age classics and some of Everett's later work, including ads and more......humorous and otherwise. Any Everett fan can appreciate the hard work of author Blake Bell and the many people who provided rare scans of the artwork. There is much more to Everett than simply the Sub-Mariner, for whom he is best known. Highly recommended.
