Our Highest Recommendation. This fine art book celebrates the work of Clayton Knight (1891-1969) and William Heaslip (1898-1970), the two preeminent American aviation artists of their time, who chronicled the golden age of aviation, (1927-1945) from Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight through the most devastating wars in world history. Knight and Heaslip were experienced military men and formally trained artists who, combining an authenticity of experience and an artistic mastery of illustration, produced powerful artwork that influenced a generation of Americans, creating air-minded adults and youngsters, many of whom flocked to US military service after Pearl Harbor.

WEIRD ADVENTURES Volume 1 City of the Living Dead
Collects #1-3 and two classic Avon one-shots, 1951-53. Highly Recommended. Art by Matt Baker, Everett Raymond Kinstler, John Giunta et al. PS is kicking off a new series of inexpensive paperback editions in addition to their hardcovers. Here we have three great issues of Weird Adventures — not the Ziff-Davis title but the far stranger 3-issue run from tiny P.L. You'll find bondage/hypodermic panels, male bondage/torture, and a severed head story. A real treat is "The She-Wolf Killer" by Matt Baker. But even better, we have two more comics: iconic, good-girl Avon rarebies, Diary of Horror! and City of the Living Dead, both with wild covers and stories by by A.C. Hollingsworth.

$24.99 $17.99

Collects #1-5, 1953-54. Recommended. Art by Jay Disbrow, Iger Shop. This one's a wacky set of issues. Canadian publisher Superior Comics jumped into the four-color horror ring, first with Journey Into Fear, then Strange Mysteries and finally with this, calling itself variously Mysteries (its legal title) and Mysteries Weird and Strange. The earlier tales were bizarre and quirky. "Shrinking Horror," "Ghost on the Gallows," "Isle of Mad Revenge," "Call Me Monster," "Kidnapped in the Tomb," "Horror a la Mode," and lots more crazed, over the top horror.

Complemented by prose sci-fi stories from Lester del Rey, Ray Cummings, Basil Wells, A. Bertram Chandler and A.E. Van Vogt, among others. PS Artbooks, 2022....More.

$34.99 $24.99

Collects #1-5, 1962-64. By John Stanley et al. Art by Gerald McCann, Ed Robbins & Frank Springer. Painted covers. This horror/supernatural anthology comic from Dell is a real blast from the past; the covers, the artwork and the dialogue seethes with that certain something that typifies the early 1960s. Featuring "The Door," one of the top twenty scariest horror stories as voted by, you'll discover a real treasure of chills in these long forgotten pages, from Aztec idols come to life, to British soldiers that are saved from the Germans by a tank squad that had been blown to smithereens two days earlier.

Collects #21-25, 1953-54. Recommended. Penultimate volume of Ace’s excellent horror title and the first to appear in softcover. Lou Cameron (a story in EVERY issue, and all of them outstanding!), the under-rated Jim McLaughlin (with more excellent work), Lin Streeter, Ken Rice, Louis Zansky and others. Ghouls and cadavers, vampires and ghosts, beautiful gals threatened by a fate worse than — or including — death! Some superb work by Cameron, who at his best was as good as Frazetta in these issues!

VOODOO Volume 3
Collects #15-19, 1954-55. By Matt Baker, Robert Webb & the Iger Shop. Some wild stuff here. #15 has an opium story; #16 a post-nuclear holocaust world; #17 electric chair tale, #19 has a bondage cover and it reprints two Matt Baker stories from the rare Seven Seas #1 and 5. Don't try to outsmart fate — you might lose your head! Be extra careful of that woman on the road — she may be a murderous vampire! Watch out for that axe-wielding old crone. And don't volunteer to take part in any medical experiments! PS Artbooks, 2022....More.

Collects Brain Boy #4-6, 1963 and Space Patrol #1-2, 1952. Recommended. By Herb Castle. Art by Frank Springer. Brain Boy is a mix of superhero, fantasy, supernatural, horror, suspense, science fiction and spy adventures, drawn by Frank Springer!

Reprints Rex Dexter of Mars #1, Fox, 1940. Recommended. Art by Dick Briefer, Claire Moe, Adolphe Barreaux & George Tuska. In 1939, Montague Dexter built a rocket ship for that year's World Fair and to demonstrate that it works, he and his wife took off and flew to Mars. Unfortunately, the ship crashed as soon as it reached the red planet. He spent the next 61 years trying to repair the ship. By that point, he and his wife were far too old to handle the rigors of space travel. But their son Rex was young and fit and he piloted his parents' space ship back home. However, Earth at the turn of the millennium was much more advanced than the world his parents left behind. PS Artbooks, 2021....More.

Signed by Bunny Yeager. Recommended. 11 X 14 Photo print directly from the negatives of Bunny Yeager. Beautiful depiction of Topless Bettie, signed by Bunny. Yeager met Bettie Page in 1954, and took most of the photographs of her that year. During their brief collaboration she took over 1,000 pictures of Page. We had a great relationship with Bunny for many years. She was a self-promoter, producing print sets using her archives, including many of Betty Page and other famous ladies. This is one that she made up at one time and we handled it for a while here. I don't think it was widely circulated, since I cannot find a single copy on the web right now. Published by Bunny Yeager, year unknown. Adult Material. Condition: Vey Fine/As New....More.
