*Comic Strip Books: We’ve added five new books to this compact and bijou section: The Executive’s Comic Book featuring Goodman Beaver (Kurtzman & Elder) and Fiction Illustrated # 1 – 3 (considered to be among the first graphic novels). #1 features Schlomo Raven Public Detective (Preiss & Sutton), # 2 features Starfawn, ‘in the tradition of Star Trek’ (Preiss & Fabian) and #3 features Chandler, ‘a hard-boiled detective’, written and drawn by Steranko. More alert readers will have counted up to four and be wondering what the fifth book is – in addition to the standard version of Fiction Illustrated #3 we also have the Curtis Circulation variant, distinguished by the ‘cc’ logo and numbered 02764 instead of P4078.
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: We’re delighted to be able to offer the complete set (#1-8) of Weird Heroes. Edited by Byron Preiss, these were a revival of the glory days of pulp magazines, using the synergy of good writing and artwork to produce amazing science fiction and fantasy. Featuring well-known authors such as Philip Jose Farmer, Ron Goulart, Edmond Hamilton, Michael Moorcock, Ted White amongst others, and equally wonderful artists including Alcala, Chaykin, Fabian, Hickman, Jones, Maroto, Nebres, Nino, Reese, Russell, Sutton, Sheridan and Steranko, these offer a treat for any Science Fiction and/or Comic fan, especially as most books are in FN or VF grade.
