SUPERGRAPHICS - BOX 4489 - READING PA 19606
TREASURES, COLLECTIBLES & RARITIES
Tarzan, Zorro, Buck Rogers and hundreds of even more outrageous characters all had their origins in the pulps. The form ultimately mutated into comics and paperbacks, then disappeared in the mid-'50s. All that remains of them today exists primarily in personal collections; their number diminishes by the year. This monthly list will offer some of the rarest and most collectible pulps, in addition to those which are more common. All are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
A grading designation accompanies each item. Read carefully:
Grading priority is primarily focused on cover condition because cover art encompasses much of the pulps' appeal and collectibility; back cover condition has low priority. Cover artists are often noted in items' descriptions. Because the magazines were printed on woodpulp and are 50 to 80 years old, they are generally browning with age; excessive browning or brittleness will be noted, as will the most significant flaws. The following CODES are used:
