From Booklist:

Colan was one of Marvel Comics' key artists in the late 1960s and the 1970s, best known for a lengthy run on the superhero title Daredevil and his stint on the groundbreaking satire Howard the Duck. He is most closely associated with The Tomb of Dracula, which ran for seven years in the seventies. He fit uneasily in Marvel's lineup of superhero artists, for his realism ran counter to his peers' stylized approaches, and his mastery of light and darkness seemed less suited to the genre than, say, the bold simplicity of a Jack Kirby. Colan's star waned as fans' tastes changed, but he continued to work steadily in the field, even when that meant wasting his talents drawing Archie. Nearing 80, he remains at the drawing board today. Field, a longtime fan, thoroughly traces Colan's career (the segment on the 1950s comics industry is particularly fascinating) through biography, interviews, and page after page of everything from original comic-book pages to previously unseen fan commissions.
