*Miscellaneous 1940-1959: Ziff-Davis, originating as a publisher of hobbyist and pulp magazines, flirted with comic books during the 1950s, and one of their more collectable series is Amazing Adventures, a science-fiction anthology, which featured beautifully-painted pulp-style covers. Issue #2 is no exception, with its carefully-designed cover image applicable to at least two of the stories therein. Of the interior tales, one is illustrated by Murphy Anderson – his classic style evident even this early in his career – and another by the cult artist Alex Schomburg, best remembered now for his insanely detailed covers for Marvel/Timely Comics and airbrush covers for Nedor. A tiny upper spine split and some age-related wear at the top edge have caused us to grade this as VG+, but the interiors remain flexible, staples are firm, and the cover image is unimpaired and luridly lovely. #2 VG+ £100.
