Before Batman and Superman were even a glimmer in Bill Finger and Jerry Siegel’s eyes, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson created National Allied Publications, which would then go on to become DC Comics; one of the largest comic publishers in the world.
Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson (the Major’s granddaughter and noted comics historian) will contribute a historical essay that provides an in depth look at the formation of National Allied Publications and the man behind New Fun, New Comics, and other memorable original comics that predated DC Comics’ inception. Other contributions include an intro by Jim Steranko (Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and an afterward by David Armstrong.
All the comics included in this tome have been painstakingly reproduced and repaired to show how they would have looked back in the 1930s; and also included are all the pulps that the comics were based on!
This groundbreaking book explores the history of DC Comics before it became the behemoth we know today; the pulp stories that formed the basis for all the different kinds of comics that exist today. Titles included in this historical reprint include Barry O'Neill and Fang Gow (script- Wheeler-Nicholson; art- Leo O'Mealia), Blood Pearls(script- Wheeler-Nicholson; art- Munson Paddock), Foe of the Borgias (script Wheeler-Nicholson; art- Sven Elven), The Golden Dragon (script Wheeler-Nicholson; art- Tom Hickey) and more!
