was an 8-issue limited comic book written by John Smith and published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics, featuring a superhero called Scarab. It ran for only eight issues between November 1993 and June 1994, although the character has reappeared in DC's series. Scarab was originally conceived as a revival of DC's Golden Age superhero Dr. Fate, but Smith's proposal was deemed "too extreme" for an established character. Scarab was consequently cut down to a limited series featuring a new character, with a retroactively-created backstory that placed Scarab within an alternate Golden Age. Pencils by Scot Eaton and inks by Mike Barreiro. Complete collection previously posted by ekenciz in AvaxHome in Aug 20, 2006, the links of which are now dead.
Storyline:

Louis Sendak is a 78-year-old man, and a retired superhero. A green door in his house leads to an other-worldly labyrinth where his father would often disappear to during Louis' childhood to collect strange, alien items. One of these items was the Scarabaeus, which latched on to Louis in 1941 and transformed him, giving him an ambiguous set of mystical super-powers. --
