*DC: In the 1970s, both major companies experimented with tabloid formats, and DC’s was the Limited Collectors’ Edition, selected reprints in oversized format, which proved popular enough to justify new framing sequences in some issues, and eventually the All-New Collector’s Edition with, as the name implies, non-reprint stories of major characters. We have two more of the oversized treats in stock – Limited Collectors’ Edition #C41 starring the Super-Friends (a selection of Justice League reprints with a new cover and framing sequence by Alex Toth, starring the Super-Friends from TV). Limited Collector’s’ Edition C-41 is FN+ at £20. Keeping it company is one of the most sought-after tabloids – and by a long way the most contentious – All-New Collectors’ Edition #C55, starring Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes, at that time one of DC’s strongest-selling series. Featuring the wedding of two founding Legionnaires, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad, this was completely undistributed in the UK and not commonplace in the US, with the result that rabid completist Legion fans (yes, like us!) had to have it, despite the fact that, frankly, the expanded page size did the Grell & Colletta ‘artwork’ no favours whatsoever. Didn’t matter to the diehard Legion folks – and still doesn’t, decades later, as every copy to come through our hands has vanished as if abducted by the Time Trapper! This copy (pictured) is an outstanding VF at £50.
