When You Believe-Bill Everett-1953

I've said it before but in many ways Bill Everett, unlike Kirby, Eisner and the better-known legends of the Golden Age, didn't need to develop his talent. He arose--appropriately enough from the sea, with THE SUB-MARINER--at a peak and just kept getting better. By this point in 1953 when the other "veterans" still around had simplified their styles, Everett--in spite of personal issues--had successfully made his more complex. Best of all was that he still had two more decades of off and on stints in the comics!
