The book, Silver Age: The Second Generation of Comic Book Artists, takes an inside look at the artists who created the modern comic book. Based on dozens of interviews, this book carefully chronicles the development of the art of comic book storytelling beginning with its roots in comic strips and with the first generation of comic book artists in the Golden Age. Silver Age uses hundreds of pieces of original artwork to illustrate its lengthy text. Silver Age demonstrates, through the generous use of rarely seen original artwork, how the art of the comics developed through the end of the 1960s.
Silver Age covers just about every artist working during the era, including Gil Kane, Carmine Infantino, Joe Kubert, Alex Toth, Gene Colan, John Romita, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Curt Swan, Ramona Fradon, Marie Severin, John Severin, Wally Wood, Al Williamson, Jack Davis, Harvey Kurtzman, Bruno Premiani, Russ Manning, Russ Heath, and Neal Adams, to name but a few. Silver Age also details the birth of the graphic novel, at the end of the Silver Age, with the release of Gil Kane’s His Name is Savage, using Kane’s original layout drawings to detail his working methods.
