FLASHBACK - Flashback was an early 1970s series published by DynaPubs Enterprises (TBG) that reprinted rare Golden Age comic books in B&W. Two rarer issues were published all in B&W in 1972, then the series numbering started over with color front covers on cardstock and an upgrade to heavier quality inside white paper. Beside providing classic high priced Golden Age comics to collectors for an affordable price, the big appeal of the series was that you got the whole comic book - including advertisements and text pieces - inside covers and back covers excluded. These are Golden Age comic size and not reduced to modern comic book dimensions! Low print runs make these issues relatively scarce today.

THE FRANK FRAZETTA PORTFOLIO: 1979, Appears NM at first glance but there is a faint upper right corner bend through the issue that becomes more prominent in the second half of the issue. No effect on the artwork. This "Portfolio" is a 52 page, high quality, magazine/book with coated card stock covers that reprints all the B&W plates and slip case artwork for the 1973-1979 Frank Frazetta portfolios: Lord Of The Rings, Kubla Khan, Buck Rogers, Women Of the Ages, Battlestar Galactica, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. It also contains a full color reproduction of the Golden Girl print on the front cover, and a couple other pieces, plus a nice photo of Frank. You must be 18 years of age or older to order this issue. But wait! There's more! If you don't want to read the story below, jump to the last sentence for the bonus you won't find offered anyplace else! See cover  $75

AND NOW, THE STORY: This was a completely pirated bootleg production. I remember ordering this back in late 1979/early 1980. The price was right and it included all the plate artwork from portfolios I didn't own. Time passed and the book didn't show. Just when I thought this was a total rip-off, the "portfolio" arrived in May 1980 (more on how I know this 36 years later). It delivered what it advertised and production quality was excellent for the price. The mailer even had a sharp Frazetta drawing on it! I was quite happy.

I did notice one thing right off the bat that I thought was very odd. The issue, based on the envelope's (I still have it!) May 22, 1980 cancellation, was shipped from San Diego, CA and I sent my check to an address on the east coast (I believe in NY). Also, the printed return address was in Montclair, NJ, which was not where I sent my check. Then, the mystery deepened.

The index had the normal Frazetta copyright and it indicated additional copies could be obtained from Frazetta's East Stroudsburg address. Again, I didn't order this from Frazetta Prints, so why was it listed as the place to get additional copies? The final line on the index page reads: "This edition is dedicated to fans of Frazetta art who cannot afford the outrageous prices of the original portfolios." It's a nice sentiment, but the price was the price on the portfolios. They all sold out quickly upon issue or pre-order, so everyone who bought one must have been happy to part with the bills (and later, the c-notes on the secondary market). The word "outrageous" stuck with me, too. Kubla Khan and Battlestar Galactica were produced by Frazetta Prints. Why would they take a jab at their own pricing structure? Russ Cochran and Middle Earth did the others and they had great working relations with Frazetta. Hmmm...a puzzler.

Then, the stories started to hit fandom. I guess some folks tried to order more copies from Frazetta Prints and they had no idea what people were talking about. It turns out this book was produced and sold without Frazetta's knowledge or the proper payments made to him and those concerned. Now, it all made sense. I sent a check to the east coast to a company not listed anywhere on the product. The book ships from San Diego with an unfamiliar NJ return address on the envelope. All this slight of hand was done to hide the identity of the pirates. I have no idea if over the years the true publishers of The Frank Frazetta Portfolio were ever identified, but this book-magazine-portfolio certainly has an interesting and checkered history. By the way, when you order this copy, I'll even include the original shipping envelope!
