Golden Age Comics Vol. 1- Nedor/Better/Pines 1940-56 - 752 issues 3 DVD-ROM boxed

$ 24.50



We are pleased to present this fine 3 DVD-ROM collection of over 700 digitized Better/Nedor/Pines Publications comics from the Golden Age!! This collection comes attractively packaged in a shrink-wrapped plastic box and represents a great value for the money when compared to other offerings of digital comics seen on eBay and other internet venues. When it comes to the number of digital issues you get per dollar spent, our collections ROCK! Rather than just package up a few issues of a single title like most vendors, our comics are painstakingly assembled into multi-disk collections by publisher resulting in a comprehensive collectors' library for each publisher whose works we offer. We provide the highest quality product available given the fact that these comics were originally printed - some seventy plus years ago - on pulp paper not meant to last. They all show the effects of age to varying degrees. Any missing covers, pages, etc, are indicated in the titles.

Scanned at ~150 dpi (higher resolution than the graphics in this listing), these comics are in .cbr and .cbz files which are basically .jpg scans with the file extension of cbz (for zip files) or cbr (for rar files) which can be read with the included reader. These files are not e-books as much as they are collections of individual scanned pages giving the reader the ability to effortlessly pull individual pages for printing or further graphic manipulation if so desired.

Aside from being a great value for the money and being a great addition to any digital comic collection, it is attractively packaged and makes a fine gift for any aficinado of Golden Age comic enthusiast!

Please read this entire listing down below the contents so you know exactly how we ship, how our disk collections are packaged, function, etc. All details are in this listing, we swell a product, not surprises! And if you have questions, give us a shout! We love hearing from you!

From 1939 to 1956 Nedor was a prolific American publisher during the Golden Age of comics. Its best-known character is The Black Terror. In June 1949, all comics were moved to the "Standard Comics" line, with a "Standard Comics" flag-like cover logo. In 1956, Standard ended and only two were continued by Pines Comics.

Many Nedor Comics characters have been revived by other publishers. Publisher Bill Black used many of the characters during the 1980s under the imprint Americomics, later shortened to AC Comics. Many of the female heroes are members of the AC Comics superhero team Femforce. Nedor Comics' characters have appeared in Alan Moore's comic book Tom Strong and its spin-off Terra Obscura. Marvel Comics used the names American Eagle, Grim Reaper, and Wonder Man for its own, different characters.

This collection contains many examples from three of the ultimate "generic" anthologies of the Golden Age – Thrilling Comics (this collection features 52 of these), Startling Comics (this collection features 43 of these) and Exciting Comics (this collection features 61 of these).

Nedor also had five regularly published super hero titles in the 1940s: the title-character-oriented Black Terror #1-27 (this collection features 23 of these issues)  and Fighting Yank #1-29 (this collection features 21 of these issues); the much lesser-known anthologies Wonder Comics #1-20 (this collection features 16 of these issues) and Mystery Comics #1-4 (this collection features 3 of these issues); and the largely super hero anthology America's Best Comics #1-31 (this collection features 30 of these issues), almost all of which are Golden Age gems. In all, there were only 111 issues of these five titles combined.

For solid examples of Golden Age heroic comics, America's Best is irresistible, running 31 issues (this collection features 30 of these issues) from February 1942 through July 1949. It was Nedor's version of DC's World's Finest Comics and Comic Cavalcade, although America's Best started before Comic Cavalcade.

The first five issues (this collection features issues 1,2, 3,4 & 5) of America's Best were 68-page gems, all featuring four lengthy super hero stories. Issues #6-8 were 60 pages. You can't go wrong with any of these issues, especially since they all have attractive World War II covers. They cover all the main characters of Nedor except Fighting Yank, who curiously did not appear in America's Best until #9 (April 1944). Black Terror and Doc Strange were in #1-8; Captain Future in #1-3 and 5; The Liberator in #1, 3-5 and 8; The American Eagle in #2, 6 and 7; The American Crusader in #6; and Pyroman in #3-8. The issues with five super heroes (not counting the non-powered Woman in Red in #1-2) are #3, 5, 6 and 7 – and how many Golden Age comics had five different colorful super heroes?

America's Best #9-31 all were 52-page issues except #15, 16, 30 and 31. They all contained three or four super hero stories through #29 including a latecomer, Miss Masque, in #23-31 (this collection features 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 & 31).

The Fighting Yank, running Sept. 1942 to Aug. 1949, carried some of the finest - if grotesque - covers of the World War II era (this collection features 21 of these issues). The Fighting Yank appeared in three stories in most issues and in four full-length tales in #1 and #2, which were the only 68-page issues. The only other heroes who appeared were The Grim Reaper in #7, The American Eagle in #18, Miss Masque in #22 and 24 and The Cavalier in #25. The Cavalier surely was among the most little-known heroes ever to be featured in a 10-page story.

Americas Biggest Comics Book, 197 pages published in 1944 is also in this collection.

Nedor also published "funny books" such as Coo Coo Comics, Barnyard Comics, Dizzy Duck, Goofy Comics, Happy Comics, Happy Rabbit and others which are represented in this collection as are the occasional romance comic, My real Love and Popular Romance.
