Supernatural Thrillers #4: The Yaffa edition


Page Publications' digest-sized Supernatural Thrillers #4 was published c.May 1981:


The cover is from Marvel Comics' Supernatural Thrillers #10:


The contents are as follows:

A Choice of Lions!, originally published in Supernatural Thrillers #10, December 1974
Flying Saucer, originally published in Supernatural Thrillers #10, December 1974
The Asp's Big Score!, originally published in Supernatural Thrillers #11, February 1975
The War That Shook The World!, originally published in Supernatural Thrillers #12, April 1975 

The main story and the backup short feature from Supernatural Thrillers #10 are included in this issue, however the backup story Contact! from Supernatural Thrillers #11 is not included.

The last page of The Asp's Big Score! omits the next issue blurb, feigning continuity directly into the second page of The War That Shook The World!, which is missing the splash page.

The covers for Supernatural Thrillers #'s 11 and 12 are not included as space was at a premium - the first story begins on page two, the inner front cover, and the last story finishes on the rear cover. I would argue the three pages dedicated to Flying Saucer should have been reserved for the missing covers and splash page.
