If you were looking for a company out of comic books’ Golden Age that regularly used the very BEST artists in the industry, it would’ve been the very aptly name Quality Comics, helmed by legendary publisher Everett “Bust” Arnold. With this fact in evidence, it’s no wonder that the Quality Comics-themed issues we do of MOM invariably get the best response. So, we’re back with another one; all Quality Comics vintage classics from cover to cover. We start with a prime example of the Quality work of Lou Fine in a breathtaking adventure of The RAY from Smash #19, followed by equally awesome art by Reed Crandall on a great DOLLMAN story originally seen in Feature Comics’ #59. Then there’s Jack Cole on MIDNIGHT; Sheldon Moldoff on KID ETERNITY; Paul Gustavson on RUSTY RYAN, Dan Zolnerowich on The JESTER and ESPIONAGE starring The BLACK X; Rafael Astarita on SAMAR; Klaus Nordling on LADY LUCK, Art Pinajian on INVISIBLE JUSTICE; John Spranger on BETTY BATES, plus CHIC CARTER, T-MAN and more, including first-time MOM feature characters MAGNO (the Quality version of Magno, drawn by Paul Gustavson from Smash Comics) and BLAZE BARTON (with art by H. C. Kiefer, from an early issue of Hit Comics), for the completists and historians among our AC readers. All this adds up to a full 140 pages of slickly-illustrated superheroics, action and adventure not seen anywhere since these stories were initially published in the 1940’s and early 1950’s; in crisp, clean black and white, between full color covers. Standard comic book size and saddle-stitched. $29.95, from AC Comics, coming in August, 2018.
