    Cancelled Comic Cavalcade #1 and 2 (DC, 1978) Condition: Average FN. The origins of this rare two-issue set is a curious story. An "Editorial, of sorts" in the first volume tells the tale: "Comics historians will note DC Comics went through a great deal of changes during the month of June, 1978, the immediate result of which was a considerable number of cancelled titles. We had a whole mess of material ready to go to the engravers.... it was felt it would be a shame if this material would never see print. What you are now holding is the first issue of Cancelled Comics Cavalcade, a two-shot which both preserves the material in question and guarantees DC's copyright to same. We have printed 35 copies, 34 of which will go to the creators and copyright people, set #35 will go to Bob Overstreet to show the world it actually happened." These rank among the rarest books of the Bronze Age. Xeroxed pages on one side only with blank blue covers, the books each measure 8.5" x 11". The contents of volume #1 are Black Lightning #12, cover to #13, Claw #13 & #14, The Deserter #1, Doorway to Nightmare #6, Firestorm #6, The Green Team #2 and #3. Volume #2 contains Kamandi #60 (including Omac), #61, Prez #5, Shade #9 (including the Odd Man), Showcase #105 (Deadman), #106 (The Creeper), Secret Society of Super Villains #16 and #17, The Vixen #1, and covers to Army At War #2, Battle Classics #3, Demand Classics #1 and #2, Dynamic Classics #3, Mr. Miracle #26, Ragman #6, Weird Mystery #25 and #26, and Western Classics #1 and #2. These books trade hands very infrequently, so take this opportunity to grab your set now. From the Compleat Kirby Comic Collection.
