Now that Dark Horse gave Mac Raboy's Green Lama the Archives treatment, I only think it's fair that someone step up to the plate and reprint Spark Publications other great hero: Mort Meskin's Golden Lad. Except for an appearance in an AC Comics reprint, I don't think Golden Lad has seen light of day since the mid-40s. This series showcased the adventures of Tommy Preston and his 'Heart of Gold' taking on all sorts of Golden Age threats from Nazis to his archenemy (if one can have an archenemy if one's title only lasts 5 issues), the Dreamer. It's good, simple Golden Age fun with superior artwork by Mort Meskin. It would be a pretty slim volume, so I'm hoping that perhaps Dark Horse could give it the M.A.R.S. Patrol: Total War treatment. I'm sure there are enough Meskin fans out there to make it commercially viable.
