The Quality Companion provides the first dedicated look at the

prolific Golden Age publisher which spawned a treasure trove of beautiful art

and classic characters, including the modern-day "Freedom Fighters" -

Uncle Sam, Phantom Lady, Black Condor, The Ray, Human Bomb, and Doll Man -

as well as Plastic Man, the Blackhawks, and others now under the DC Comics

umbrella. It provides the first-ever A-Z, in-depth character profile of every

Quality costumed hero, many of whom were superbly-produced but are now

long-forgotten. It also reprints, in full-color, several 1940s key stories of

these characters from such rare 1940s collector's items as Smash Comics,

Police Comics, National Comics, Feature Comics, and

Crack Comics, and features Golden Age art by the top artistic talents of

that era, including Lou Fine, Reed Crandall, Jack Cole, Chuck Cuidera, Matt

Baker, Will Eisner, and others! Creators who were instrumental in the revival of

the Quality characters from the 1970s to today are also interviewed, including

Roy Thomas, Len Wein, and Jimmy Palmiotti.
