Out of the back pages of Detective Comics came the surprise hit of 1973, "Manhunter," and its illustrator, Walter Simonson. The series garnered awards and accolades, and the artist quickly became a star sensation. Ten years later he cemented his name among the legends of the comic book field with his epic saga, Thor. From Fantastic Four and X-Factor to Battlestar Galactica and Star Wars, Simonson can handle any genre with ease, and his stylized, dynamic artwork is an influence on many of today's top artists. This, along with a grand sense of adventure and powerful storytelling, makes Walter Simonson the subject of the next volume in the Modern Masters series! This 128-page trade paperback looks at his life and work, and features an extensive, career-spanning interview lavishly illustrated with rare and unpublished art from his files!
