    Golden Age Greats # 1

    Out of stock

    THIS BOOK IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT AND UNAVALABLE AT ANY PRICE!! Golden Age comics and the history of the medium are topics of great interest to the AC Comics editorial staff. While the major comic producers, Marvel and DC have done a laudable job preserving and maintaining much of the material they produced during comic’s formative years, what was to become of the output from smaller, or long-defunct comics publishers? Qualitatively, this work was often as good as, and sometimes better than that produced by the big companies. To fill that historical vacuum, Golden Age Greats was created- dedicated to preserving the best and most interesting stories and forgotten characters from comics’ Golden Age. This landmark first issue starts off with a bang, presenting Holyoke’s Cat-Man and Kitten, from Cat-Man Comics #29, 1945, facing off against their arch-nemesis Dr. Macabre, in “The Man Who Conquered Death!
