Alex Toth's magnum opus, collected in book form for the first time ever!
This deluxe hardcover edition contains all three of The Genius's stories
starring Jesse Bravo, knock-about pilot and reluctant swashbuckler, including
the original graphic novel that's been out of print for 30 years. Also included
are never-before-seen pencil roughs, preliminary drawings, and story fragments,
as well as Toth's own coloring samples for an edition that never saw print,
and-freed from storage after 40-some-years of the coloring for what was intended
to be Bravo's original 1975 first printing in France! It's not just a
comics collection, it's a capital "E" Event - the ultimate Bravo for
Adventure, published by special arrangement with the Toth
Born in New York City in 1928, Alex Toth attended what is now the School of Visual Arts and broke into the comic book field as a teenager. During his sixty-year professional career, he became known as the "artists' artist"--he became very much like his great hero, Noel Sickles--the guy all the others wanted to draw like. In the 1960s he entered the animation field and became equally well-known and respected for his groundbreaking designs for Space Ghost and The Herculoids, among other series.
