The Pictorial Guide to British 1950's Sci-Fi & Horror Comic Books (Limited Edition) at The Book Palace

Ref: PGTB1950 (Click for larger cover picture!)

Spaceships! Monsters! Superheroes! You could find them all in abundance within the action packed pages of comic books filling the bottom shelves of British newsagent's shops back in the 1950s.

Some were home grown productions and some were reprints of American material but all of them helped to brighten up a rather drab decade suffering from various forms of post war austerity.

Mike Morley takes a nostalgic look at this neglected area of publishing and presents a full colour collector's guide to this fascinating sub-section of our social history. With 288 pages of full colour reproductions of over 1000 British comics covers, this is an essential book for all fans and students of British comic history.

This is a LIMITED EDITION book of only 300 copies, so please do not miss out on this tremendous archive of material before it sells out.
