The Golden Age of Champions (3rd Edition)


It is a time of great social and political upheaval. America has finally pulled out of the Great Depression while Europe, North Africa, most of Asia, and the Pacific are in the grip of global warfare. The Nazi's Blitzkrieg thunders into Russia, their Luftwaffe rains destruction on England, and their Kriegsmarine begins to threaten Atlantic shipping. The forces of the Nipponese Empire dominate eastern Asia and the Pacific. Suddenly, Pearl Harbor is attacked, and America gears up for war.

In the midst of this maelstrom, the first comic book superheroes came to life, many of whom are still popular. A large number of the heroes and the adventures of the years 1938 to 1945 were influenced by the greatest event of that time, the second World War. Histories of comic books mark these years as the "Golden Age."

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
