On Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 6:30pm, Toronto author Blake Bell launches his latest book - Amazing Mysteries: The Bill Everett Archives v1 - and previews the next volume of his Steve Ditko Archives series with a slide show and book signing presented by The Beguiling.

Bill Everett created the Sub-Mariner (the first anti-hero and mutant of the Marvel Universe), and co-created Daredevil. The Bill Everett Archives v1 reprints for the first time Everett's earliest work in comics from 1938-42 featuring his creations Amazing Man, Hydroman, Skyrocket Steele and many more! Steve Ditko is the co-creator and original artist of the Amazing Spider-Man, but produced an entire library worth of work in the decade prior. Mysterious Traveler: The Steve Ditko Archives v3 debuts in April and focuses on Ditko's stellar work from 1957 for Charlton Comics. Both books are published by Fantagraphics Books, Inc.
