The Fawcett Companion examines the history of Fawcett Comics, publisher of Captain Marvel, The Marvel Family, Spy Smasher, Bulletman, Ibis the Invincible and other time-honored comic book characters! Editor P.C. Hamerlinck has compiled this volume, collecting the best material from the nearly 30-year history of the Fawcett Collectors of America Newsletter (which now appears as a special new section in each issue of ALTER EGO magazine). Presented here are interviews and features on C.C. BECK, PETE COSTANZA, MARC SWAYZE, WILL LIEBERSON, OTTO BINDER, ROD REED, GINNY PROVISIERO, and more, with behind-the-scenes looks at how the company operated from its 1940 beginnings until ceasing publication in 1953 in the wake of a legal battle with the owners of Superman! Also included is an index of all Fawcett comics published, plus rare and unpublished artwork by BECK, SWAYZE, KURT SCHAFFENBERGER, MAC RABOY, ALEX TOTH, GEORGE EVANS, ALEX ROSS, & more!
