- Rodney, I apologize for the delay in replying. I was offline last
week trying to finish a conference paper. I no longer have my copy
of PREVIEWS at school, but it was in the Import section.

I will look again for the comic in Previews. The 2 items you are interested in would be $10.25 plus shipping, about $2.00. I have another copy of the GIANT-SIZE DEFENDERS #2 with a 6 page Black Knight reprint from Atlas BLACK KNIGHT #4, in which Sir Guy Wanderell impersonates the B.K., I am only going to list it at $2.50, VG+ condition with one small cover corner gone, AND a copy of CONAN #10, which reprints another 6 page B.K. story from the Atlas issue #4, "Men of the Shadows". I was going to list it for about $6.50. If you want these, I'll add them and still just ask $2.00 for the postage! ALSO, do you have all the HERO FOR HIRES and the B.K. UNCANNY ORIGINS??? If not, I'll let you have all 3 HERO FOR HIRES for a $1.00 and the UNCANNY ORIGINS for $.50. Let me know soon!
P.S. Picked up a video copy of 5 episodes of THE FREEDOM FORCE. Merlin is one of the superheroes! Absolutely NO ARTHURIAN content.
