"Oh, how super-scrumptious, Hank. Tonight we live!"

She's the queen of jukeboxes and hi-jinx, and now she's back!

Among the many genres that thrived during the Golden Age of Comics was the teen comedy, sometimes with romantic elements, sometimes not. One example of these was Standard's Kathy, a series that lasted eight epidodes in the anthology series Thrilling Comics and eventually being awarded its own title in 1954.

Kathy was at its best in the earliest episodes, with fast-paced stories that read like modern-day television sit-coms ahd which are blessed with art superior to almost any other teen comedy strips, as it was by the dream team of Frank Frazetta and Ralph Mayo.

NUELOW Games' Kathy collects all four of the Frazetta/Mayo-illustrated episodes in one place. The book may be of special interest to those like to examine the techinical aspects of comic book art, as Mayo and Frezaetta handle different aspects of the art on different stories.

In addition to the classic comics, Kathy includes a complete supplement for ROLF!: The Rollplaying Game of Big Dumb Fifghters. It features a story in which Kathy meets actress Linda Turner (secretly the Black Cat), four battle scenarios, seven pre-generated characters, and a selection of Traits and Battle Maneuvers not included in the main rulebook.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
