*Alan Class Reprints: Five more plate sets from the Alan Class Private Collection, each one reprinting a story from the Silver Age of Marvel’s super-heroes – in most cases, as previously remarked, the first reprinting of these classic tales, very shortly after their first release! All five feature, in addition to publisher Alan Class’s file copies of the comics, the four lead printing plate sets originally used in production, plus a hand-signed Certificate of authenticity from Alan Class himself. All sets are supplied in a plastic presentation/display case.
Creepy Worlds #34 is one of a string of CW issues reprinting early Fantastic Fours, not quite in sequence. This issue re-presents Fantastic Four #4, in which an accidental encounter with the Human Torch brings the Golden Age anti-hero, the Sub-Mariner, into the Silver Age Marvel Universe! Creepy Worlds #71 re-presents issue #9 of the Amazing Spider-Man, with the first appearance of Electro. In addition to the usual four cover colour plates, this set offers an additional two interior plates – one of which is the splash page of the Spider-Man story! Suspense #91 presents a Daredevil double-feature, reprinting issues #35 & #36 of the original series. Suspense #104 features not one, but two issues from the original Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD series, #13 and #14. And Astounding Stories #80 reprints X-Men #55, behind an early cover by Barry (later Windsor-) Smith! Full details as always in our catalogue.
