Trying to cover every comic published by the companies that became DC Comics, when so many of these comics have not been reprinted, recolored and repackaged, often forces me to use books archived on microfiche. Which means blurry and desaturated images from time to time. Jay Garrick knows what I mean. So let me just dumb a bunch of those lesser-quality panels from comics on the stands in August of 1942, all in this one post.
Even at this resolution, the energy and quality of some artists - like Mac Raboy - is undeniable.
And Jack Cole is definitely another one.
Reed Crandall too!
In fact, Quality Comics prided themselves on the quality of their art. Dave Berg would go on to be a pillar of Mad Magazine.
