Description
For over 30 years, the sharp and distinctive inking of Dave Hunt (1942-2017) appeared in best-selling comics featuring a wide variety of popular characters. From the Amazing Spider-Man to Superman, from the Transformers to Scooby Doo, Dave's firm and glossy lines have enhanced the art of numerous comic art icons, including Ross Andru, Sal Buscema, John Byrne, Gene Colan, George Perez, Kurt Schaffenberger, and Curt Swan. Dave Hunt: An Artist's Life has been written with the complete cooperation of Dave Hunt and his estate. In this book, Dave describes in his own words his long and winding career that took him to a full-time job in the Marvel Comics Bullpen in the early 1970s and on to draw DC Comics heroes and then children's comics in the 1980s and 1990s to 2000s. Dave candidly recounts his friendship and interactions with comic book giants including Ross Andru, Carl Barks, Gene Colan, Bill Everett, Frank Giacoia, Keith Giffen, Joe Kubert, John Romita Sr., Kurt Schaffenberger, and Julie Schwartz. Dave Hunt: An Artist's Life includes well over 100 images of rarely seen comic book art and correspondence from Dave's collection. This book is a tribute to a true comic book fan who became a superb comic book craftsman and brought memorable stories to life for decades of comic book readers.
