Title: The Great Houdini
Authors: Beryl Williams and Samuel Epstein
Cover artist: uncredited
Yours for: not for sale
Best things about this cover:
- Houdini simply would not let Run-DMC show him up, chain-wise.
- Access to Houdini's junk was so highly prized that he had to lock that shit down. For real.
- Houdini used a wormhole to travel through time. He ended up in the year 2024. Unfortunately, his clothes ended up in 1863.
Best things about this back cover:
- Worst back cover ever. I got nothin'.
Whenever he entered a new city he went straight to the police headquarters, to challenge the authorities to lock him in their strongest fetters and their safest prison cell.
I'm surprised this did not get him severely beaten on a regular basis, especially if he showed up dressed like he is on the front cover. Cops have real work to do, jackwad.
Thanks to Jami for sending this book my way. And I repromise to be more prolific.
