    Finding an affordable way to read the Golden Age DC comics can be a challenge. I really enjoy these collections as I get to read comics from the beginnings of the comic era. Recommended

    It's hard to truly rate a collection anthology since so many different writers and artists are working on different projects. Still, I've tried to balance this out. This collection is the 1940 and 1941 (or '39 and '40, I'm sorry I don't have it on hand to check at the moment) reproduction of the World's Fair Giant Comics that were printed for said event. The earlier one features a lot more of the characters directly interacting with the World's Fair (specifically the Trylion and Perisphere...I p It's hard to truly rate a collection anthology since so many different writers and artists are working on different projects.

This collection is the 1940 and 1941 (or '39 and '40, I'm sorry I don't have it on hand to check at the moment) reproduction of the World's Fair Giant Comics that were printed for said event. The earlier one features a lot more of the characters directly interacting with the World's Fair (specifically the Trylion and Perisphere...I probably got those names wrong, again, really should've had it on hand still). The latter is more tangentially related or foregoes being set there altogether. There are some standout comics in the collection. For example, I rather enjoyed Slam Bradley, the Mutt & Jeff comic strips, and Sandman. It was also interesting to actually read some Golden Age Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern as I've never had the chance to do so before. The same goes for Batman and Superman as well, now that I think about it. Unfortunately, there are some real stinkers in the present day reading, such as the idiotically named Red, White and Blue (Red Dugan, okay, Whitey White? Blooey Blue?). Many I can't even recall the name of. The writing and penmanship are also all over the place. And though the opening makes it clear that they haven't edited anything out, nothing is too racially insensitive. At least, as bad as it could've been given the time period. All in all, for historians, this is a pretty interesting work. It also made me wish I could've seen that World's Fair so as an advertisement, it worked wonders. The random factoids sprinkled throughout were enjoyable as well and probably helped sell more souvenirs or food. If you're interested in the Golden Age of comics, this is pretty useful, but having read it, I wouldn't read it again probably.
