*Horror 1940-1959: Our Autumn extravaganzas begin right here with the first instalment of our latest Pre-Code Horror Fest – The Mother of them all and our biggest ever! We start with one of the nicest graded examples of this genre we’ve ever come across — Charlton’s Thing #17 in a sparkling VF grade at £450. This copy of the final issue of this acclaimed infamous series has white inner and back covers, a glossy black background front cover, virtually unmarked, tight staples, presents flat with only slightly off-white pages — for 61 years old, it’s looking a lot better than I do! Beneath a moody and atmospheric classic Ditko cover, we get, amongst other stories, a classic Alice Through The Looking Glass parody and a classy piece of work by Bob Powell. Somewhere in an attic there must be a mouldering copy which is ageing instead of this one! There’ll be many more spine-tinglers along very soon in a variety of grades and prices, so keep your eyes peeled and avoid injuries to them!
