*Alan Class Reprints: We’ve unearthed a few more Alan Class Printing Plate Sets for your collection. Each of these unique items from the personal archive of Alan Class comprises the 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. Some sets also feature handwritten anecdotes on separate cards with Alan Class’s reminiscences about a particular comic. As Class collectors will be aware, the same plates and covers were used for several issues in the series, and we include wherever possible as many examples of this in each set to present the publishing history of the use of the printing plates. (Please be aware that these weigh a lot and postage will be expensive. Also note that due to the onerous paperwork required for customs declarations following Brexit, we can no longer post these Plate Sets outside the UK.)
This update, 2 sets each featuring early issues of Creepy Worlds and Uncanny Tales. Fans of Kirby & Ditko will find much to delight them in the Creepy Worlds sets. Full details as always in our catalogue. For more guidance on the content of each comic, please refer to our Alan Class Rough Guide.
