The 1940s and 1950s saw many publishers try to emulate American comic heroes from comics that children could no longer get hold of because of the war. Gerald Swann and his fellow entrepeneurs did their best and came up with real gems. In 1950,as a reaction to all those "horrid" horror and violent comics,Frank Hampson published The Eagle,heralding the Silver Age of British comics.
In 1986,Black Tower revived many Golden Age heroes and some like Krakos,Streamline,both "THE" Bats and Maxwell have been appearing regularly ever since
