Marvel’s Invincible Gene Colan


Signed/Remarqued by Gene Colan Himself

In February of 2010, Marvel Entertainment released THE INVINCIBLE GENE COLAN (Hardcover, 128 pages). Edited by Clifford Meth, and including observations from Stan Lee, Neil Gaiman, Walter Simonson, Marv Wolfman, Tom Palmer and John Romita Sr., it is also a stunning visual tribute and biography of one of the most brilliant, sublime and influential comic artists in the genre’s history.

Aardwolf worked with Gene Colan and his family for over 15 years. We are proud to have published many of Gene’s original works, and to have participated in several fund-raising auctions when his health was threatened. We were delighted to be awarded the opportunity to offer the signed, limited editions of this extraordinary book.

Gene is gone now, but Aardwolf Publishing has some exclusive remaining copies of this book. And there’s a chance you can still find some of the remarqued copies that pop up for sale on the web from time to time.
