*Marvel: From 1971, the debut of Werewolf By Night in Marvel Spotlight #2. Created by Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway and Mike Ploog, the story of a young man named Jack Russell (no, really) who contracted a lycanthropic curse hit a high note with the readership and spun off into his own series after these three issues. As a bonus, the extra-thick #2, issued during Marvel’s fleeting flirtation with a 25c standard price, has a gorgeous Venus back-up reprint strip drawn by the incomparable Bill Everett. Squarebound issues are notoriously problematic, but this copy is a remarkable VF+, with a tight and firm squarebound spine, deep vivid cover colour, and sharp corners, the only thing preventing a still higher grade being a very faint ink impression over the logo, from when recently-printed copies were occasionally stacked before the ink had quite dried. Only visible under quite close scrutiny, this does not detract from the eye-appeal of this gem. VF+ £200.
