Crypt of Shadows #1

Well, it's only taken a bit over a year to prove my little theory, but I can now confirm that the unnumbered digest sized Where Monsters Dwell is indeed a facsimile reprint of the earlier standard size edition of Crypt of Shadows #1.

I'm not sure how long the COS series ran for, but I do know #'s 2 and 4 (and presumably #3) are digest sized, so #1 may be the only regular large size issue in the series.

It's well worth seeking out this larger edition for the greater printing clarity. The Wolverton and Maneely strips especially benefit from the larger scale, although the Heath reprint still suffers from a degree of muddiness, which I guess was inherent in the U.S reprint source.
