Amazing Golden Age Adventure Funnies #1 - Golden Age DAREDEVIL Preview!

Sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but I'm doing it anyway:

There are lots of places where you can download or go online and read Golden Age comics (like here, for example). But some people, like me, like to hold comics in their hands and read them. And there are companies that do Golden Age reprints, but they are usually in black and white. It's cool to be able to read stories you may not find elsewhere, but they were meant to be read in color.

So, utilizing the wonderful world of print-on-demand, I decided to do it myself. The first issue of my 52-page full-color AMAZING GOLDEN AGE ADVENTURE FUNNIES features characters appearing in Project: Superpowers:
  • The Black Terror from America's Best Comics #14 (July 1945)
  • Captain Future from Startling Comics #37 (January 1946)
  • The Golden Age Daredevil from Daredevil Comics #28 (January 1945)
  • Dynamic Man from Dynamic Comics #15 (July 1945)
  • The Flame from Wonderworld Comics #25 (May 1941)
  • Plus Yankee Boy in a 1-page text story from Yankee Comics #4 (March 1942)
  • And a gallery of covers from the original comics!!
Special thanks to Ka-Blam for printing it, IndyPlanet for carrying it and Ka-Blam/IndyPlanet co-founder Barry Gregory for naming it his Pick of the Week!!

Here's a preview: the complete Daredevil story!

You can check out my (currently lame) Terrific Comics website, too! But there's nothing there that isn't here. :)

    I have a question: Is the book quarterly?

  2. That's kinda my plan. The future will tell us if it actually happens. I'd actually like to do it more frequently if I could find the time.

  3. I don't even want to know what PeeWee was doing, rooting around in a gold fish bowel.

  4. I wish you the best of luck with this. You're absolutely right: While it's nice to be able to simply read any of theses Golden Age stories, nothing beats being able to have a real book in my hands.

    Nice job on the restoration and I like the cover, too!
