*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.
We open with a double-feature: Creepy Worlds #67 & #133, both of which reprint Avengers #6, the first appearance of Baron Zemo and His Masters of Evil; the pre-decimal #67 is GD/VG, while the post-decimal #133, with identical content, is FA. Comics and plate set on sale at £35.
Creepy Worlds #69/132 reprints Spider-Man #13, the debut of Mysterio. Unfortunately, we only have a post-decimal copy of #132 in GD, but a cover proof of #69 in FN is included. Comic, proof and plate set on sale for £35.
Secrets of the Unknown #38 re-presents the second-ever Thor (and the first Jane Foster, soon to be Thor on the big screen!) from Journey Into Mystery #84! This is FA/GD, and the comic and plate set are £45.
Sinister Tales #35 is VG, featuring Ant-Man and the Wasp from Tales to Astonish #45, (second Wasp appearance) battling ‘The Return Of Egghead!’. This VG pre-decimal comic and plate set are on sale for £30.
And Sinister Tales #84, though not sporting a Marvel cover, reprints one of the most significant Marvel stories: inside, the very first tale of Iron Man, Tony Stark, from Tales of Suspense #39. This re-presentation of a pivotal origin tale is FA/GD, and together with the plate set will cost you £35.
More from the Marvelous Alan Class collection very soon!
