Okay, her får I noget Siegel & Shuster, der aldrig har været genoptrykt før! Dr. Occult og Dr. Nemesis!

Disse historier fra før Superman er Joe Shuster for fuld udblæsning, og er blandt hans mest personlige værker!
Golden Age Dr. Heroes: Gwandanaland Comics #136/837-HC: Dr. Occult: The Complete More Fun Comics Stories / The Complete Dr. Nemesis
DR. OCCULT is in many ways the epitome of comic history. He was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (under the pen names Leger and Reuths), three years before they brought us Superman. DR.OCCULT is also claimed by many to be the first costumed hero in the Golden Age of Comics. And to top it off, since he is still used as a character today, he is one of the longest running character concepts in comics, with a history that stretches back well over 83 years! For reasons we may never know, National Periodical Publications failed to renew the copyrights of the first few dozen issues of New Fun / More Fun Comics. While good quality copies of this iconic series are rare and expensive, Gwandanaland Comics is proud to bring you the complete MORE FUN COMICS run of DR. OCCULT stories, including his first appearance! – an exciting look back into comic history!
Includes his appearance in The Comics Magazine #1 (as Dr. Mystic)!
NOTE: Because of the rarity of good material, this is a “something is better than nothing” situation. Some stories are taken from low-resolution microfiche and required alteration. We will constantly work to upgrade our books; in the meantime, we hope you can appreciate this first-ever print collection of this early Golden Age series.
“Young Dr. Jim Bradley, hospital intern, has discovered a truth serum which when injected into a person causes them to tell the absolute truth to any questions asked. When the effects of the serum wear off shortly afterwards, the patient does not remember the interlude. Fearing that the truth serum with get into criminal hands and be misused, Dr, Bradley keeps the serum a secret, but he uses the serum as a weapon when he goes forth incognito, as DR. NEMESIS, to fight the forces of evil!”
Intern by day, crimefighter by night, DR NEMESIS is a hero who is not afraid to “stick it” to the criminals – and Gwandanaland Comics has the only complete collection of his adventures in print – from Lightning Comics and Super-Mystery Comics!
