Archive of public domain golden age comics opened

The Digital Comic Museum has opened a huge archive of comics.

Boingboing has a few details:
The Digital Comics Museum has over 15,000 Golden Age comic books (all in the public domain). It's a treasure trove of clip art and inspiration for designers and artists.

More from Open Culture:
The DCM asks users to register and log in before downloading comic files. Registration is free, and—for now—there’s no limit on the number of titles you can download. You can enter the archive here.
When you're there, make sure you visit the site's ever-growing collection of those notorious 'Pre-Code' Horror comics of the 50s. Also see the Archives and Collections area where artists of note have been given their own individual spotlight.
To see teh downloaded comics, I needed a 'cbz' reader. I used a Chrome app. Here are some others. Quora also listed options. Here is another.
So what did I find of interest?


And Fletcher Hanks can be found there as well. Hanks was featured here previously.

Here is the 'superwizard' Stardust!

Homer Cobb seems to be an Archie clone invented by Canadians.
