KALISPELL, MT, January 14, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Last year, fantasy author Ron Glick debuted his Golden Age Preservation Project through the Kindle publication of the entire "Amazing-Man Comics" series. Amazing-Man (John Aman) was a fictional, American comic book superhero whose adventures were published by Centaur Publications during the 1930s to 1940s in the Golden Age of Comic Books. Historians credit his creation to Bill Everett together with Centaur art director Lloyd Jacquet. The character influenced the creation and origin of Charlton Comics' 1960s superhero Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt and Marvel Comics Iron Fist character in the 1970s.
This January, Ron is expanding the project by adding the original appearances of Dan Garret, aka, the Golden Age Blue Beetle, to the Golden Age Preservation Archive. The Blue Beetle was created by Charles Nicholas and made his first appearance in August of 1939 in the comic book "Mystery Men Comics" #1, published by Fox Feature Syndicate. He has the distinction of being one of the few golden age characters to survive into the present.
In 1955, the character of Blue Beetle was bought by Charlton Comics. This was the birth of the second incarnation of the character. He underwent many changes besides the additional "t" added to his last name. This Dan Garrett did not have a lot of comics written about him, but when DC Comics bought the rights to the character, it was this version of Dan that they decided to use.
Now the original stories of the non-licensed character are available in Kindle format through Amazon, opening up Blue Beetle'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.
