Kalispell, MT, July 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- In 2013, fantasy author Ron Glick debuted his Golden Age Preservation Project through the Kindle publication of the entire “Amazing-Man Comics” series, and earlier this year published the entire original “Mystery Men Comics” series featuring the Golden Age Blue Beetle.
Now Ron is expanding the Project by adding the original appearances of Billy Batson, aka, Captain Marvel, to the Golden Age Preservation Project archive. Captain Marvel – also known as Shazam in modern comics – was created by Bill Parker and made his first appearance in February of 1940 in the comic book Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics. He has the distinction of being one of the few golden age characters to survive into to present.
Through the years, the character of Captain Marvel was bought by various publishers, and was purchased for the final time by DC Comics in 1991. Though DC purchased the character, they were not able to maintain the copyright to the original issues published by Fawcett. As consequence, all of the original books fell into the public domain by 2005.
Now the original stories of the non-licensed version of Captain Marvel are available in Kindle format through Amazon, opening up this character's original adventures to a new generation. Ron is proud to present this long-lived hero as he was originally conceived to a modern audience.
