From the Golden Age to the present, Gene Colan remains a distinguished giant of the comics industry.
His work on books like Daredevil and Doctor Strange is legend.
You can see Gene Colan's work in the following Aardwolf publications:
Comic Book Babylon. 370 pages of truth. If you can handle the truth. What really happened to Gene Colan? Why did Harlan Ellison want to slap Jim Warren? And what happens when Barry Smith can’t find his Windsor? All books are signed by the author!
He was called The Dean of Comics, The Shadow Master, and Marvel’s Iron Horse. His cinematic storytelling is instantly recognizable to generations of comic book readers. He stands out as one of the most influential and beloved of the many artists who illustrated our favorite comic book characters. He actually defined the way we feel about them—from Daredevil and Iron Man to Howard the Duck and Tomb of Dracula.
This collection is an industry-wide tribute to Dave Cockrum. Contains writing and artwork from just about everyone's favorite comic creators.
This Bastard Planet continues the tradition started with Crib Death & Other Bedtime Stories.
The book contains six of Clifford Lawrence Meth's wildly imaginative stories with illustrations by Gene Colan, Dave Cockrum, Paty, Paul Abrams, Gray Morrow, and Marie Severin.
An Afterword by Dave Cockrum and a stunning cover painting by Joe Michael Linsner (who also wrote the Foreword) rounds out this incredible collection.
"Inventive...Compelling...Original...Words you've heard before regarding new talent on the scene. In Meth's case, they're true."
- Gray Morrow
"Showing us the wild variety of life, and how a wilder variety of characters cope with it, is what Meth does. And he does it well."
- John Romita

"Trying to describe Gene Colan's incredible artwork is like trying to describe a rainbow. The best way to appreciate it is to look at it."
- Stan Lee
Anyone who doesn't believe in magic hasn't seen what Gene Colan can do with a pencil. This collection presents a retrospective of the artist's work in pictures from 1944 to 1996.
Stan Lee & Roy Thomas penned the forewords, and a recent, illustrated interview finds "Genial Gene" reminiscing about the early days of comics. Also included is a near-complete credits list. It's a must for Colan collectors.
40 pages, B&W: Only 1500 were printed. Some included a Gene Colan signed bookplate. You might find a rare copy in your local comic shop.
god’s 15 minutes is 242 pages of pure Clifford Meth adrenaline.

From the possessed mind of author Clifford Meth (Snaked) and legendary artist Gene Colan (Daredevil, Tomb of Dracula) comes the reprise to the team's arresting dark-fiction collection Perverts, Pedophiles & Other Theologians (a Barnes and Noble "Horror Pick of the Week"). This new volume contains everything that was in the first collection plus two new stories co-written by Meth and Colan. Introductions and afterwords by Mark Evanier, Marv Wolfman, Gail Simone, and the late Steve Gerber. While Gene is gone now, proceeds from this book went directly to him and his family during his last years. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 8 1/2-in., 148 pages, Text (with B&W Illustrations).
We won’t give too much away, but we will say Clifford Meth‘s work has never been more emotional or on-target—and Gene Colan‘s illustrations are simply breathtaking—and it’s wrapped in a cover painted by Jeff Amano, which is truly a work of art. Steve Gerber introduces the book.
