Alex Toth's magnum opus contains all three of The Genius's stories starring Jesse Bravo, knock-about pilot and reluctant swashbuckler, including the original graphic novel.

More than forty years after its creation, Bravo For Adventure remains a rollicking pastiche of 1930s high-adventure, replete in the visual trappings of film noir without any of that genre's existential depression. By this point in his career Toth had stripped out all extraneous lines and detail, demonstrating complete command of his staging and chiaraoscruo technique, and cementing his reputation as the medium's most sophisticated storyteller.

Also included are never-before-seen pencil roughs, preliminary drawings, and story fragments, as well as Toth's own coloring samples for an edition that never saw print, and--freed from storage after 40-some-years--the coloring for what was intended to be Bravo's original 1975 first printing in France! It's not just a comics collection, it's a capital "E" Event -- the ultimate Bravo for Adventure, published by special arrangement with the Toth family!

Born in New York City in 1928, Alex Toth attended what is now the School of Visual Arts and broke into the comic book field as a teenager. During his sixty-year professional career, he became known as the "artists' artist"--he became very much like his great hero, Noel Sickles--the guy all the others wanted to draw like. In the 1960s he entered the animation field and became equally well-known and respected for his groundbreaking designs for Space Ghost and The Herculoids, among other series.
