    this is an excellent collection of one of the most important of all Golden Age publishers, and I refer to it often
    it is near definitive in terms of content
    it includes beautiful examples of all the major characters and dozens of more obscure ones and several good essays … in terms of comics content its much more exhaustive than the recent AlterEgo/TwoMorrows volume (which was also very good for the essays and colour content)

    any chance for a matching Fawcett volume? I know AC has published a few all-Fawcett issues of Men of Mystery, and the old Golden Age Greats vol 4 (I think?) but I really believe the Fawcett characters deserve to be given a similar format to this Quality book: obviously at least one story apiece for SpySmasher, Ibis, Bulletman and Mr Scarlet, one of Nyoka and then whatever else you think we need to know about … though some Dave Berg or Wolverton humour strips would be appreciated, maybe some latterday horror or other genre examples, and if you can manage it Hoppy the Marvel Bunny! (some editorial tweaking would not be minded if it could facilitate a Hoppy appearance in such a volume)
