NB The third comic title to come out of the DC Thomson stable after Dandy and Beano, Magic only ran for 80 issues until 1941 before falling victim to wartime paper and dyestuff shortages. To our knowledge less than fourteen copies of No 1 exist and even fewer of Nos 2-5. In the auctioneer's opinion this is an unrivalled opportunity to acquire these first five issues in one fell swoop along with their scarce Magic promotional Flyer and a rare piece of original Chick Gordon artwork.
