The Quality Companion provides the first look at the Golden Age publisher whose productions included fine art, memorable characters, and sparked such lasting, modern comic influences as Uncle Sam, Phantom Lady, Plastic Man and others now appearing in DC Comics. It consists of an encyclopedia A-Z character profile of all heroes, reprints in full color several 1940s key stories from rare collector comics, and blends a chronology withy an oral history and discussion of the evolution of major Quality characters. Black and white images accompany discussions of comics teams, creators and individuals in this outstanding survey recommended for any definitive comic history holding.
