Signed full color Mr. Monster Bookplate. Highly Recommended. The Wraith was a cult classic during the early days of indie comics in the 1970s, and a training ground for Michael T. Gilbert’s later work on Elric and Mr. Monster. Created as spoof of Will Eisner’s Spirit, Wraith fans included Eisner himself. He wrote “The Wraith has a lot of originality. Your style and approach are very vigorous!” The Wraith appeared in all six issues of Star*Reach’s Quack! Here is every story, scanned from the original art, plus a wealth of unpublished art and photos, and an intro by Mr. Monster himself! Gilbert’s commentary provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the 1970s comic book scene. Clover Press, 2020.

in 1998, Michael drew a killer-great bookplate for us for his latest Mr. Monster collection. That book is long gone, but we printed extra plates. We’ve included it free with this new collection. Signed and Dated by Michael in 2018. Seems appropriate, since Mr. Monster introduces this new collection!
