BARNABY Volume 4
1948-1949. Recommended. By Crockett Johnson. The misadventures of five-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his Fairy Godfather J.J. O'Malley continue. Bumbling but endearing, Mr. O'Malley rarely gets his magic to work even when he consults his Fairy Godfather's Handy Pocket Guide. The true magic of Barnaby resides in its canny mix of fantasy and satire, amplified by the understated elegance of Crockett Johnson's clean, spare art. Fantagraphics, 2020....More.

Item Code: BAR04H
Hard Cover, 11x7, 388pg, b&w
$49.99 $39.99
On Sale are all three back volumes: 1 $35, $17.50, 2-3 $39.99, $19.99 ea. Act now, I'm not sure if we can get more of these, we have just 5 to 8 copies of each one left at this price. Volume 4 is an especially thick volume, with 388 pages, so this could be the final collection.

Highly Recommended. By Roy Thomas et al. Art by John Buscema et al. Roy Thomas' decade-long original run on Conan The Barbarian ranks as one of the greatest in comic book history, and it was crucial in making Conan an icon in the comics world. Here Roy and his artistic collaborator John Buscema bring the saga of Bêlit and her quest for the crown of Asgulun to a conclusion. It's a tale that will forever change Conan's life. The adventures that follow feature an even more savage Conan, fiercer than ever and truly unbound. Buscema pencils ALL of this work, with inks by Ernie Chan. Marvel, 2020....More.

Recommended. Limited to 299. By Jose Gonzalez. Few artists have managed to capture the iconic look of Vampirella like Jose Gonzalez could. 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of comics' most memorable vampire, and Dynamite celebrates the occasion with a very large, 12 inches tall, 1/6 scale tribute to her most memorable illustration! The classic "Warren era" of Vampirella is finally exemplified in this highly-detailed resin, the way it was meant to be. Dynamite, 2020....More.

The regular edition is limited to 706 and is still available [WODVJ. $249.00]. See other statues here, and more by Jose Gonzalez here.

New and On Sale-from Classic Comics Press


Dailies, 1959-61. Our Highest Recommendation. By Rod Reed. Art by José Luis Salinas. Classic Comics Press continues its reprinting of the complete run of The Cisco Kid with an introduction by John Ordway. While the television show of the Cisco Kid is often spoofed, the opposite is true of this strip itself. It is held in the highest regard, and many veteran comics artists and fans are glad to add this to their library. If you are a fan of Frank Frazetta's 1950s comics work, find out where he was getting his inspiration. Salinas is brilliant at penciling and brush work; detailed, dynamic, exicitng. He can draw humor, danger and adventure, handsome heroes and beautiful women with the very best. Classic Comics Press, 2020....More.

Item Code: CIS05
Soft Cover, 8x11, 240pg, b&w
We have just two copies of Volume 1 [CIS01. $24.95] and eight Volume 3 [CIS03. $25.95]. But these remain in print and we'll be bringing in more. Volumes 2 and 4 are out of print, but the publisher hopes to have new printings ready next year. Here's the titles still available from their White Sale:

Closeout Price! 1955-60. Our Highest Recommendation. By Warren Tufts. Fans have been asking for this ever since I first began selling comics 50 years ago. Warren Tuft's masterpiece Lance includes the entire run of this magnificent comic strip in one volume with the Sundays in full glorious color! Each daily and Sunday has been beautifully restored by Manuel Caldas. Also included in this volume: an in-depth analysis of Tufts' work onLance by Zoran Djukanovic, biographical information, and more! Tufts was actually emulating Hal Foster's Prince Valiant, right down to the lack of word balloons, an ironic narrator, and brilliantly designed artwork in every panel. This is one of the best Sunday adventure strips you will ever see. Classic Comics Press, 2018....More.

CASEY RUGGLES A Saga of the West Volume 1
Special Sale Price 1949-55. Highly Recommended. By Warren Tufts. Warren Tufts is one those rare artist‘s artists, hugely admired by his fellow creators. Tufts' assistants were another talented list: Al Plastino (Superman artist), Edmond Good, Alex Toth, and the super DC creator Ruben Moreira. Tufts is not so well known to the public today, but this small body of work—and then his next project, Lance— captured devoted admiration from fans AND other creators, for quality stories AND quality artwork. Casey Ruggles is a smart and brave adventurer, in and out of scrapes with nefarious villains and beautiful women. Classic Comics Press, 2018....More.

Soon Rusty is thrust into the world of horse racing—as well as danger, lost treasure, criminals, and a beautiful comrade!

Artists include Don Perlin, Rafael Astarita, Paul Gattuso, Ralph Mayo, George Meyerriecks, Bob Forgione, Joe Kubert, George Tuska and William Ekgren, whose bizarre surreal covers are now key collectible books from the pre-code days.

Hollingsworth, Bill Molno, Bob Forgione, Gus Ricca and Bernard Baily. They're all here—witches, vampires, walking corpses, ghosts, ghouls and goblins galore. PS Artbooks, 2017....More.

Closeout Price! Collects #1-6, 1956-57. Highly Recommended. By Steve Ditko, Vince Alascia et al. Back in the post-EC days of the mid-to-late 1950's and early '60's, Charlton was doing some darned good comics, thanks to ex-EC artists but most especially to Steve Ditko, before he made the move to Marvel. Beginning with issue #3, this was all Steve Ditko, cover to cover, through #6. In the first two issues things were more pure sci-fi, with artwork by Mastroserio, Dick Giordano (who of course moved to DC and eventually became editor-in-chief there), Bill Molno and Charles Nicolas, who was the creator back in the early 1940s of The Blue Beetle.

Closeout Price! Collects #7-10, 1958. Recommended. Art by Steve Ditko, Maurice Whitman, Fred Kida, Sal Trapani et al. Innovative science fiction comics didn't end with EC”EC was doing wonderful work, ACG the occasional story, but Charlton was a hotbed of sci-fi and fantasy, spear-headed by the great Steve Ditko. It might seem a poor man's EC, but led by wonderful covers and lots of stories by Ditko, today this is a stand-out title. Additional artists include Bill Molno, Charles Nicholas, Dick Malmgren, Rocco Mastroserio, Paul Reinman and even Gene Colan. Numbers 7 and 8 were 68-page, fifteen-cent issues—together they boast SIX Ditko stories and two covers. PS Artbooks, 2017....More.

Closeout Price! Collects #11-16, 1959. Highly Recommended. By Vince Alascia, Steve Ditko, Matt Baker et al. Back in the post-EC days of the mid-to-late 1950's and early '60's, there was really only one place to go for your SF fix when you'd exhausted DC's output for that month: Out of this World, which would of course become synonymous with the work of Steve Ditko. Here we have three stories by him in #11 alone, plus more work in #12 and 16, and three gorgeous covers. Backup stories by Paul Reinman, Alascia, Mastroserio and the other regular Charlton artists.

Closeout Price! Limited, 1,700! Collects #5-10, 1952-53. Highly Recommended. By Alex Toth, Reed Crandall, George Tuska, Grandenetti, Andru, et al. For a minor title, this has an all-star line-up of artists! Standard Comics did not believe in #1 issues—they started all their horror titles with #5. But what titles—these were above-average in both art and story, and good, solid storytelling. Their titles included The Unseen, Adventures into Darkness & and this— each lasted just ten issues or so. All well done E.C. imitations. Alex Toth is brilliant here; Reed Crandall does two stories (noted in his new bio), Jack Katz (The First Kingdom) is bizarre and fun. PS Artbooks, 2017....More.

Wild stories and outstanding artwork! Four stories by Alex Toth plus a bunch by Mike Sekowsky, who was obviously influenced by Toth and was doing work so close sometimes it's hard to identify! Plus bizarre, over-the-top horror and beautiful women by Jack Katz, future Wonder Woman artist Ross Andru, fine work by George Roussos, and Tarzan comic strip artist John Celardo.

Fresh from the fear-fraught fifties come the first seven issues of Trojan Comics' Beware, dragging along a whole bunch of festering corpses by way of an artists' assemblage that includes The Stainless Steel Rat himself, the great Harry Harrison, plus work by the fine Sid Check, Gerald Altman, Vince Napoli, Henry Kiefer, Roy Krenkel, Al Gordon, Leo Hagler, William Zeller, Albert Tyler, A.C.

Closeout Price! Collects #8-14, 1954-55. Recommended. Art by Sid Check, Frazetta, Jay Disbrow, Myron Fass and Harry Harrison. Frazetta puts in a rare appearance, collaborating with Sid Check on an amazing cover. There are also stories of "a heart torn out," "blood drainage" and that's only what Overstreet is pointing out. One of the weirder titles of the time, as the filled newsstands meant publishers had to outdo the competition with bloodier, darker, stranger stories of horror. Sid Check provides two exceptional stories here and also Jay Disbrow, who is clunky but always fun. PS Artbooks, 2018....More.

The great Jay Disbrow (who died in 2017) is featured memorably in this often overlooked and certainly unsung gem, appearing within wonderfully weird covers by L.B. Cole and alongside EC stalwart Jack Kamen (jungle and horror comics reprinted from pre-EC days). Disbrow does his wildest sci-fi and horror, and Cole provides killer covers that have become classics. The balance are reprinted stories from Fox titles, including three Jo-Jo's and a Rulah story, The Mask from Capt. Flight, and Torpedo Man, an unusual aquatic hero drawn by the great Rudy Palais.

Mac Raboy Sale


MAC RABOY Master of the Comics
The first-ever book on this hugely talented artist. Our Highest Recommendation. By Roger Hill. Introduction by Roy Thomas. Beginning with his WPA etchings during the 1930s, Mac Raboy struggled to survive the Great Depression and eventually found his way into the comics. He perfected his art style on early stories of Dr. Voodoo, Zorro The Mystery Man, Bulletman, Spy Smasher, (all for Fawcett), The Green Lama and, finally, his crowning achievement, Captain Marvel Jr. Raboy went on to illustrate the Flash Gordon Sunday newspaper strip, and left behind a legacy of meticulous perfection. Through extensive research and interviews with son David Raboy, and with several of Mac Raboy's Golden Age assistants, author Roger Hill brings Mac Raboy, the man and the artist, into focus.

New Hurt Sale


Highly Recommended. By Thomas Hauffe. Between 1890 and the beginning of the First World War, a new international style developed in architecture and design. Following the example of the English Arts and Crafts movement, the representatives of Art Nouveau turned against the eclectic excesses of the Victorian era, embracing organic forms, plant ornamentation and functional free-flowing architecture. This volume shows the highlights of European Art Nouveau as it was interpreted, everywhere a bit differently, in Germany, Austria, Bohemia, Hungary, Italy and Switzerland. Konemann, 2020.

Collects Amazing Adventures #1-6; Amazing Adult Fantasy #7-14; Amazing Fantasy #15, 1961-62. Highly Recommended. By Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby et al. At the dawn of the Silver Age, Stan and the gang were offering readers a cadre of ten-ton terrors, from Torr to Manoo to Monsteroso — along with weird tales of witchcraft, Martians and Dr. Druid. And Lee and Ditko started their all-new more mature storytelling, featuring aliens, time travel, ghosts and atomic nightmares! Ditko's lushly illustrated stories set a new standard for comic art, and Lee raised the bar with his powerful, thoughtful scripts. And, oh, in the last issue of AF they created Spider-Man.

MARVEL MASTERS OF SUSPENSE Stan Lee & Steve Ditko Omnibus Volume 2 Hurt
Completes the two-volume set. Highly Recommended. By Stan Lee. Art by Steve Ditko. Before Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, Steve Ditko applied his incomparable art and storytelling mastery to taut suspense-thrillers, cast with nervous-eyed dreamers and sweaty-palmed schemers, none of whom make it out without getting their just desserts. Here you get every single one of Ditko's stories of suspense for Marvel (and Atlas) in two beautifully restored Omnibus volumes. From his very first Marvel work in 1956 through to his last five-page masterpiece, every Silver Age tale is collected here. Marvel, 2020. Condition: Bumps to corners....More.

Afterword by Frank Frazetta Jr. This book began by reviving the original million-selling 1970s mass market art book, Fantastic Art of Frank Frazetta. Then it was expanded and revised to include twice as many images, variants of paintings, prelim sketches and color roughs, and more...It also now presents them at a much larger coffee-table book size of 10.5 x 14.5 inches.

Recommended. By Michel Draguet. In this beautifully illustrated book, Michel Draguet, an internationally recognized authority on fin-de-siècle art, offers an enlightening examination of the life and art of Belgian Symbolist painter Fernand Khnopff (1858”“1921). Khnopff achieved widespread acclaim during his lifetime for his moody, dreamlike paintings, as well as his numerous commissioned portraits, designs for costumes and sets for the theater and opera, photography, sculpture, book illustrations, and writings.
