*Alan Class Reprints: Continuing our periodic spotlight on Alan Class comics which reprint classic Marvel tales – often the very first reprinting of these stories, within a year or so of original publication – we turn to Uncanny Tales #3, which reprints the Ant-Man story from Tales to Astonish #36. TTA #36 was the third appearance of Hank Pym/Ant-Man, his second in costume, and introduced the first ‘super-villain’ of Hank’s Rogue’s Gallery in Comrade X! (Don’t worry, it did get better – though one has to admit, Comrade X’s gimmick was genuinely unexpected.) This early Marvel Universe story by Lee & Kirby is re-presented in full, as well as a selection of Charlton sci-fi one-offs, including no fewer than four illustrated by Steve Ditko! The comic itself is in a superb VF condition, tight corners, vibrant covers, and the squarebound spine suffering from none of the ‘puckering’ effect owing to glue contraction which is very familiar to Class collectors. This lovely early AC item, complete with certification that it is from the Alan Class Private Collection, is on sale at £50.
