With the re-issue of Secret Teaching of A Comic Book Master: The Art of Alfredo Alcala, it adds to my collection from this great artist.
I value my copy of the extremely rare Voltar from Magic Carpet. As do I my copies of those The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian and Vampirella where Alcala drew everything (pencils and inks) that I have kept all these years. I also have about a dozen of his comics from his days in Marvel and DC. Voltar though is something special. Goes hand-in-hand with my collection of Prince Valiant. The Magic Carpet magazine features two stories drawn by Alcala: Voltar as written by Manuel Auad and "Bucacaneers of the Skull Planet" as penned by Bill Blackbeard.
Really love these old stuff.
