Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
  • The Quality Companion provides the first dedicated look at the prolific Golden Age publisher which spawned a treasure trove of beautiful art and classic characters, including the modern-day "Freedom Fighters" — Uncle Sam, Phantom Lady, Black Condor, The Ray, Human Bomb, and Doll Man — as well as Plastic Man, the Blackhawks, and others now under the DC Comics umbrella. It provides the first-ever A-Z, in-depth character profile of every Quality costumed hero, many of whom were superbly-produced but are now long-forgotten. It also reprints, in full-color, several 1940s key stories of these characters from such rare 1940s collector's items as Smash Comics, Police Comics, National Comics, Feature Comics, and Crack Comics, and features Golden Age art by the top artistic talents of that era, including Lou Fine, Reed Crandall, Jack Cole, Chuck Cuidera, Matt Baker, Will Eisner, and others! Creators who were instrumental in the revival of the Quality characters from the 1970s to today are also interviewed, including Roy Thomas, Len Wein, and Jimmy Palmiotti.
