Squarebound comic books with predominantly black covers are known to challenge collectors seeking high-grade copies. Voodoo Annual #1 exemplifies this rarity, as acquiring a copy in excellent condition can be exceptionally difficult.

This CGC 5.0 copy currently available for bidding represents a remarkable finding, with only one unrestored copy graded higher in nearly ten years. In 2022, a CGC 7.5 copy fetched an impressive price of $19,200.00.
Between 1951 and 1958, Farrell Publications released 321 issues across 62 titles. While the publisher dabbled in various genres, they became most recognized for their Pre-Code Horror line and underrated mid-1950s superhero line. The latter included titles inherited from the now-defunct Fox Feature Syndicate, such as The Flame, Samson, and Phantom Lady. Robert Farrell, who had previously worked with Victor Fox and collaborated with Iger Studio, spearheaded these ventures. Notably, Haunted Thrills and Voodoo stand out as Farrell’s most successful horror titles.
Given its undeniable appeal, serious collectors of Pre-Code Horror are reluctant to part ways with Voodoo Annual #1.
