*Vintage UK/Australian Reprints of US Material: Our special Halloween 2016 event continues with the cream of vintage UK pre-code horror reprints. This week, another extremely rare item, the one-off Black Magic Album featuring 160 pages of pre-code horror, some of it from Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, founders of the imprint, but also including Atlas and other publishers. There had already been a successful run of squarebound reprints of Black Magic in the UK (contributing to the furore about ‘horror comics’ which we commented on earlier), and this compilation edition, of a lower print run than the ongoing series, is seldom seen – we’ve had maybe three through our hands during our years of trading. This is a respectable VG-, with the card cover lightly creased at the corners and spine as one might expect, but the cover scene is unimpaired, the interior pages clean and off-white, and most critically for this extra-thick ‘whopper’, the spine is in very good shape, with only minimal wear at the very top & bottom. Yours for £75.
