Alter Ego #111, July


Spotlighted in this month's Alter Ego magazine, published by Twomorrows Publishing, is remembering The Golden Age Nedor-Heroes.  Mike Nolan provides a 1968 guide to the Thrilling/Better/Standard Super-Heroes.

A big surprise to me was seeing Doc Strange, who predates Marvel's Master Of The Mystic Arts!  Other heroes include The Black Terror, The Grim Reaper, Miss Masque, The Phantom Detective, Pyroman, The Fighting Yank, The Sphinx and The Liberator.  All-in-all, a pretty impressive line of characters.

Part II of an interview of Leonard Starr is included, DC covers are twice-told, The Golden Age Of Fanzines Panel is remembered from 2011, the death announcement for Jerry Robinson is published and Mary Marvel is 70 years old.
