Hello and welcome to the first amazing issue of All-Amazing Comics!!! Here you'll get a monthly dose of Golden Age goodness!

Leading off this month is one of the greatest golden age stories I've read from Green Lama #5. What's so great about it? Well, you'll just have to read it to find out! You won't be sorry!

Next up we have a wonderful story of one of the most underrated, and almost forgotten, heroes of Big Shot Comics, the Cloak! Once you read it you'll be begging for more!

Rounding off this month's issue we have a rather odd story from Heroic Comics. I chose it because it was just so typical of what this title was all about. I don't want to give away too much of the story so you'll have to read it for yourself!
