Spotted: Houdini Graphic Biography with new title treatment

Today I spotted an eBay auction for what is described as a “brand new” copy of the HOUDINI Graphic Biography released by Saddelback Education Publishers in 2008.

However, the auction photo shows cover art with a title treatment very different from the ’08 edition. The eBay seller is in Australia so it’s unclear whether this is a region specific design or if this is a new printing from Saddelback also available in the U.S.

Guess a little bookstore investigation is in order.

Saddleback’s HOUDINI Graphic Biography is a reprint of a “pocket biography” first released by Academic Industries in 1984.
