This category has two sections. The first lists items from Alan Class’ private collection. The second lists our regular stock.

More information about Alan can be found on the Extras page and information about content can found in the Alan Class Guide.

 

THE ALAN CLASS PRIVATE COLLECTION

Alan Class has generously announced that he will sign (either with a plain autograph or a personalised dedication) any comic/set purchased from the Alan Class Private Collection. This is in addition to the certificate already included. Please let us know if you wish this free-of-charge extra when buying any of the issues listed below in green. Please note that this will entail a short shipping delay while we contact Alan Class to provide this, and whilst there is no charge for the signature etc itself, there will be a small fee for sending the comic to Alan Class and his return. (NB this service is temporarily suspended during the pandemic)

PRINTING PLATE/COMIC 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. 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. Each set additionally comes with a colour information sheet showing a picture of Alan Class with his comics (while stocks last). Please be aware that if ordering for postage, these weigh a lot and postage will be expensive, particularly outside the UK.
