The Golden Gems Project
Bringing back forgotten pieces of beautiful art in their original state for future generations to enjoy.
what is this?
Golden Gems aims to remaster and recolour old vintage comic book stories out of the "Golden Age" of comics (ie roughly 1935-1955). Golden Gems repurposes old forgotten beautiful artwork; gives a collection of factual history tidbits about the comic, its publisher, and its artists; and even brings back some characters in new, modern storylines, all in a neat and intriguing format and manner.
why do it?
TRCBP has always been saddened by the short lifespan that our medium typically experiences, and the harshness of the only existing copies of once beautiful drawings. We are also impressed and inspired by the various incredible art styles and forms of storytelling that came out of this era. We want to bring back these forgotten, beaten up pieces and educate people today of their former glory and history. Be it touching up rough spots, adding colour for the first time, or a complete remaster of the work in its entirety, Golden Gems strives to eternalize the original art in its original printed glory!
