*Alan Class Reprints: In preparation for our Alan Class signing session here on Sunday 7th June, we’re very pleased to announce a further release of his Printing Plate Sets. Each of these unique items from the personal archive of Alan Class comprises the four lead printing plates used in the original comics’ colour printing, a copy of the comic printed with these plates and a signed certificate of authenticity signed by Alan Class himself. These are packaged in a special protective case. Several sets (as noted) have additional historical artefacts such as colour proofs, interior page plates, printers’ photostats, additional comics reprinted later in the series, original American comic featured etc. Most sets also feature handwritten anecdotes on separate cards with Alan Class’s reminiscences about a particular comic. Titles in this release are Astounding, Secrets Of the Unknown, Suspense, Uncanny & Weird Planets. Heavily featured are super-hero covers and lead stories, including the favourite Marvel characters Spider-Man, the Avengers, Daredevil and the Silver Surfer, as well as other publishers’ heroes: the Jaguar, Judo Master, Mandrake and the Phantom. There are also many horror/mystery covers beloved of Alan Class collectors, including some with evocative Steve Ditko covers. A piece of comics history, not just for the comic itself but also for the process in its manufacture!
