    Description

    Cancelled Comic Cavalcade Vol. 1 and 2 (DC, 1978) Condition: VF. In June, 1978, DC cancelled several of their titles. For copyright purposes, the unpublished original art for these titles was xeroxed, bound in the above books, published and distributed. Only 35 copies were made, which places these among the rarest books of the Bronze Age. Xeroxed pages on one side only with blank blue covers. The books each measure 8.5" by 11". This particular set originally belonged to DC's Vince Colletta, and a handwritten letter from Vince verifying the authenticity of these copies will be included with this lot. Volume #1 contains xeroxed copies of art for 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 Xeroxed copies of art for 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 copies have only very minor wear and are in VF condition (though they are a bit too big for CGC to encapsulate). No Ditko collection is complete without this set. If you like esoteric, scarce items, then these books are definitely for you. These trade hands very infrequently, so take this opportunity to obtain your set now.
