The rarest DC Bronze Age collector's item!
Denny O'Neil Estate CollectionPerhaps the rarest collector's items of the Bronze Age. DC had expanded its line in what it proudly called the "DC Explosion," but soon canceled a whole slew of titles in what wags quickly dubbed the "DC Implosion." DC produced this two-volume ashcan edition to protect DC's copyright to the content, printing a mere 35 copies. Of these, 34 were given to the creators and copyright people, and one to price guide publisher Bob Overstreet for documentation purposes. Containing pages photocopied on one side only with blank blue covers and a taped spine, the books each measure 8.5" x 11". Many of these comics were featured in DC house ads, offered as subscriptions, or both before the sudden cancellation. And many of canceled DC series ended on cliffhangers (Shade the Changing Man to name one), making this your one chance to find out how the story ended. Also, completists of artists like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko will find stories here that never saw the light of day. These copies are in immaculate condition, custom bound for Denny O'Neil's personal collection. These books almost never come up for auction, we can't find evidence of a public sale of these in over a decade. This is an incredible opportunity to add a real rarity that would enhance any collection.
