Best Of Spark Comics: Gwandanaland Comics #2095 -- Golden Lad - Atoman - Green Lama -- The Top Heroes From This Short-Lived Golden Age Publisher
SPARK PUBLICATIONS was a small publisher of the late Golden Age, and they only put out a few titles, each featuring a great character: Golden Lad, Green Lama and Atoman. Sadly, Spark disappeared quickly and these great heroes faded from the collective memory..... but not quite! Gwandanaland Comics has these three characters in one amazing book!
GOLDEN LAD - “Out of the darkness and misery of Europe under Hitler come the sick, the tired, the homeless....seeking shelter and the helping hand of America....and the HEART OF AMERICA is big enough and great enough to give aid to those who need it!
And then what little remains of the hatred that is fascism strikes against the helpless! But the land that protects the weak also produced a champion - - GOLDEN LAD - - who battles through to bring in a rescue ship to “THE HAVEN FOR ALL!”
GREEN LAMA - This hero actually has three identities: Jethro Dumont, who left his rich New York Lifestyle to study in Tibet; the Buddhist priest Pali; and the mystical figure of the night, THE GREEN LAMA, who uses his superhuman abilities to fight against evil throughout the world. Part science and part mysticism, THE GREEN LAMA also joined the Allied battle during World War Two, aiding the cause of justice and freedom. THE GREEN LAMA began as a pulp hero, and graduated to comics during the Golden Age.
ATOMAN - “Out of the turmoil and horror of war, a new age is born – the Atomic Age! And with the new age....a new man appears on the stage of the world! Who is this new man whose body generates atomic power? Whose muscles give him the colossal might of the universe?
It is ATOMAN
But how will ATOMAN use his strength? Will it be for good or for evil? What is the amazing story that comes right out of the headlines? And leads to.....THE MAKING OF THE MIGHTIEST MAN!”
NOTE: The only thing preventing this collection from being complete is the missing issue GREEN LAMA #1.
