*Charlton: While most comics companies turned their backs on super-heroes in the 1950’s (at least until DC’s fateful relaunch of the Flash), Charlton, that beloved b-list publisher, kept trying the genre out through the decade, and we have two of the odder entries this update: Zaza the Mystic and Nature Boy! Zaza could best be described as a Poundland Madame Xanadu, aiding her hunky detective boyfriend in solving his cases by her mystic wiles – though even in her own private thought balloons, Zaza switched from believing she had actual powers to admitting she was only a clever trickster – what’s that crystal ball made of, Amnesium? Meanwhile, a (literal) orphan of the storm was rescued at sea by a bunch of under-employed deities and sent back to his startled parents with the powers of – Nature Boy, able to command the elements! Nature Boy featured early artwork from John Buscema and Dick Giordano, and ran three issues from #3 to #5; we have the final issue, #5 (with the first and only appearance of his distaff counterpart, Nature Girl!) in a rather lovely VF at £60. Zaza’s entire run (#’s 10 and 11 – Charlton numbering can kindly be described as ‘eccentric’) is also new in stock.
