You talk and we listen…

Hot off the heals of our first foray into Trade Paperback Editions comes the third installment of nightmarish yarns culled from the pages of Harvey’s Witches Tales.

Due to be published late March 2014, were making available the whole run of Witches Tales available in a run of sumptuous softcovers, each volume containing five comicbooks but without the support material featured in the hardbacks.

Featuring Issues 17-22 from February 1953 – December 1953 these are gloriously printed on comic book-esque paper complete with glossy inserts for the covers. These are the closest thing to reading the original comics from back in the 1950s.

Hey, come on now . . . you can’t be a comicbook fan if you don’t subscribe to *Alter Ego*: go here and make things right before we have to send someone round to straighten you out:

Anyway, Rob and Mike have made the necessary amends: now all we gotta do is send a little “Well done Mister Thomas” prize to Roy! Sheesh!
