Welcome To The Comics Rack

Maintained by Clark Savage, Jr., TGA & Willard Fong, ESQ.

Meanwhile...    The metal rack, with its multiple pockets, hung empty on the small store's wall, waiting, waiting. Then suddenly those pockets were filled, with treasures that had never been seen before. Chromatic, 64-page, 10-cent compendiums of brand new pictorial adventure and mystery. Within months the heroes would display amazing powers--and unorthodox costumes. The Golden Age of Comic books had begun!
    Here we offer you a place to explore the "funny book" phenomenon. Also the newspaper comic page adventures that cut the trail for it, the Silver Age of comic books that would come later, and the many, many facets of the comics world.
