The Uncompromising Life of the Artist Behind Spider-Man and the Rise of Marvel Comics. Highly Recommended. By Dave Currie. The first in-depth biography of comics legend Steve Ditko, in his own words--taken from years of correspondence with author David Currie and endorsed by the Ditko family with a foreword by son Mark S. Ditko, who writes, "I'm very happy to say that this is a really great book. David, and his correspondence with my uncle and others, uncovered and documented things that would otherwise have been left unknown or subject to complete speculation "if ever even considered." Well illustrated with a lot of original art, several rare photos, and some iconic artworks. Hermes Press, 2020. Condition: Bumped corners....More.

Collects #13-18 1952-53. Recommended. Art by Lou Cameron, Mike Sekowsky, Bill Discount, Ace Baker, Charles Nicholas et al. Throw another log on the fire and secure the bar across the door, here comes another dizzying dose of devilment from mid-line publisher Ace, who flourished from the early 40s to 1955. Lou Cameron is the star here, with stories in nearly every issue. Ace Baker (the named coined for a Matt Baker look-alike), Lin Streeter, Bill Molno, Charles Nicholas, Chic Stone, Jim McLaughlin, Bill Discount, Dick Beck, and Ken Rice all contribute fun horror tales above the pre-code average.

Collects #1-4, 1950-51. Recommended. By Richard Hughes. Art by Ogden Whitney et al. This latest title on the PS Artbooks roster, Operation Peril is a total winner, with issues 1 through 4 boasting stories by Richard Hughes (of course) and artwork by, among others, the one and only Ogden Whitney--every cover and one story each issue. Tales of adventure and science fiction, not unlike DC's Danger Trail and EC's last issues of Two-Fisted Tales, with some sci-fi too.

Collects #23-26 and Strange Suspense Stories #27, 1955. Recommended. By Dick Giordano, Don Heck et al. Charlton Comics often fared poorly when measured against the big guns of DC and Marvel, and that's a shame because sometimes they had lots to offer! Check out this extremely eclectic title, with offbeat stories all over the spectrum, from suspense to horror, crime to adventure, and art to match, sometimes semi-adult. Ted Galindo, Dick Giordano, George Evans, Lou Morales, Pete Morisi, Vic Martin, Marc Swayze, Don Heck, Bill Molno, Sid Check and Stan Campbell contribute the artwork. PS Artbooks, 2019.

Oversized hardcover with exquisite artwork. Our Highest Recommendation. By H.P. Lovecraft. Art by François Baranger. Following up his stunning illustrated Call of Cthulhu, Baranger is back with a matching volume in what we hope will be a continuing series! Acclaimed for his work as a concept designer for cinema and video games, he has performed the incredible task of re-imagining one of H.P. Lovecraft's most classic and horrific tales into visual art--Landscapes of frozen wastes, unspeakable creatures millions of years old found in an abnormal state of preservation, strange geometric structures at the top of black mountains. Words cannot do the visuals justice. It is a book with images to pour over. Design Studio Press, 2020. Condition: Bumped corners....More.

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.

Original 3-part novel. Fact & Fiction Afterward by Ennis. Highly Recommended. By Garth Ennis. Art by P. J. Holden. Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, and Fascist Italy began World War II with aircraft that could devastate enemy warships and merchantmen at will. But Britain's Royal Navy had only the Fairey Swordfish, a biplane torpedo bomber in an age of monoplanes. It was underpowered and undergunned; a museum piece, an embarrassment. Its crews fully expected to be shot from the skies. Instead, they flew this novel plane legend--against the Italian Fleet at Taranto and integral in sinking the Bismarck, to the deadly challenge of the famous Channel Dash as German ships tried to slip through the English Channel. Dead Reckoning, 2020. Condition: Bumped corners....More.

The Avengers and Fantastic Four were reborn with bold new looks, their origins re-envisioned. Thor, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Hawkeye, Hellcat, Ant-Man, Iron Man, and more: the Avengers lineup is both new and classic. They're up against revised versions of Kang, Ultron, the Enchantress, the Masters of Evil, Loki and more. Plus: the Avengers and FF take on the Hulk and Galactus! Marvel, 2020.

Highly Recommended. Pin-Up and Cheesecake Art take front and center in two feature articles: Peter Driben, one of the most prolific American pin-up artists of the 1940s and '50s — best known for his hundreds of cover paintings for Beauty Parade, Titter, Wink, Flirt, and more.

Recommended. By Elizabeth Campbell Denlinger. Commemorating the two-hundredth anniversary of Frankenstein, trace the origins and impact of Mary Shelley's novel — a classic of world literature, a masterpiece of horror, and a forerunner of science fiction. Shelley conceived the archetype of the mad scientist who dares to flout the laws of nature. She devised a conflicted creature, eloquent and repulsive, torn between good and evil. In the movies he can be a brute pure and simple, yet he is still an object of compassion. Includes an art gallery with illustrations by Wrightson, Lynd Ward and Barry Moser, comics by Dick Briefer and Ploog, powerful movie posters and much more. Handsome black cloth with silver-embossed cover design. New York Public Library, 2018....More.

Rare & Out of Print


Rare Books Email:

As I mentioned above, we emailed out a list of 61 Rare Books on Wednesday, April 18. Click here to see it on our blog, or click here to see the items on our site.

These are the very beginning of the two collections that I talk about in my editorial in the new catalog. Two of my very good friends passed away in 2020. I am handling their collections, which we'll be listing over the next months.

Richard Dix and Steve Adamovich had been been collecting since the 1960s. They had huge collections of art books, fantasy and sci-fi and comics-related books, including a great many signed/limited editions. Richard had a huge collection of vintage illustrated books dating back to the 1890s…many of these will be listed by Anne in our separate antiquarian business. You can contact Anne at to get on her email mailing list. Anne's also working on a brand new antiquarian website.

Note: If you click on an item in the Rare Books list, or search the item code and it does not come up on the website, it is SOLD OUT. Our old website used to let you know an item was sold out, but that's impossible (so far) on our new site. Now the item drops off the site entirely. If you want to double check with us, and/or would like to have us put you down for the next copy that we find, give Todd a call or send him an email.

For example, as I write this, already sold out are:

Drawing with Pen and Ink RB1696
J.C. Coll Art of Adventure Deluxe RB1823
Maxfield Parrish: A Retrospective RB1828
Haddon Sundblom RB1863.
Frank Frazetta Book Five RB1847
The Art of Jon Whitcomb RB1852
Vaughn Bode Lizard Zen RB1810

If you are looking for anything special, contact and we'll see if it's available and/or add it for you to our Want List. A great many of the books we'll be listing are ones we have handled in the past 40 or so years. We plan to ramp up doing more Rare Books emails, one each month from now on, so be sure to sign up. We'll also continue to list new Rare Books most weeks in this email too, or just check the website and select “latest” in each category of Rare Books.
