Available Now: NUELOW Games Summer Special!

The NUELOW Games Summer Special continues our ongoing project of unearthing interesting material from the Golden Age of Comics and bringing them to modern audiences. This book documents entries in the teen comedy comics genre which thrived from the early 1940s until the mid-1970s, tracking roughly with the rise and fall of romance comics. In fact, there is much overlap between the two, with the teen comedies often involving romantic entanglements of some sort or another.

The NUELOW Games Summer Special presents half-a-dozen summer themed stories, in which comic book teens hit the beach, and Black Cat hits the bad guys. It features work from such industry legends as Harry Sahle (one of the artists who established the look of Archie, the sole surviving teen comics character from those days), Al Feldstein (who went on to be a celebrated satirist and editor of MAD Magazine), Lee Elias (one of the Kings of Good Girl Art), and others.

In addition to classic comics, the book features a full-blown ROLF! supplement... although if you are a regular visitor to this blog, you've already seen much of it, since it's an expanded version of the "Kathy" battle scenario that was presented here earlier this month.

Click here to check out previews of the NUELOW Games Summer Special. It's currently on sale for half of its regular price. The sale price will remain in effect through June 21, the first day of summer.
