New Stela Series: Golden Age Comics for the Digital AgeAuthor: Wes Moots
From the pages of history to the palm of your hand, Stela’s latest set of releases takes classic comics from the 1930’s and 40’s and places them just a few screen-taps away.
With chapters from historic series releasing every Sunday and available completely for free, Stela’s presentation of golden age comics are a great way to see the origins of the comic-narrative as it developed in America. Each one has had its layouts altered to allow you to enjoy it just as you would with the other Stela series: no page turning, no side-scrolling, just one continuous comic feed for each chapter.
Four series already have their first issues released on the Stela app:
Taglined with the statement, “Only A Strong American Can Prevent,” Atomic War is a speculative fiction series about American Troops protecting the country in the age of atomic weapons following the end of WWII. Patriotic propaganda comics made classic as only the golden age of comics can.
Created in the early 1950’s and telling the story of the Gordon Dane, better known as Captain Science, as he explores space and faces extraterrestrial threats on strange new worlds and in the space between them. Captain Science is an essential example of early science-fiction comics!
Back in its original publication in 1942, Marvel Family elaborated on the original Captain Marvel comics and tells the stories of others with similar powers to Captain Marvel including Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr., and more as they battle evil and save the world!
With all the humor and shenanigans which would become a standard for industry staples like Denis the Menace and countless other Sunday funny paper comics, Super Brat tells the story of a boy who gains superpowers and his misadventures as he struggles between heroism and mischief.
Check out these old school series and more as they are released every Sunday for free on the Stela app: available on both iOS and Android app stores now!
