In addition to help make the Portfolio special for the early subscribers who had a wait of several years there are the Volume Three bonus plates (unsigned) by Hal Foster (he hand colored his Plate from V1), Wally Wood, Burne Hogarth, Al Williamson, Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman and Frank Frazetta (full color rough for the Clint Eastwood movie poster for The Gauntlet). We'll also include a fanzine from the publisher which documents the entire fascinating story behind the publication including dramatic lawsuits!
Printed with the best quality lithography available at the time on acid free Strathmore art paper these Plates look like the original art when matted and framed. This is a "matched number" three-volume set in MINT condition which we have acquired directly from the original publisher. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
