Dark Shadows by Ken Bald  (0350-)  1st Appearance March 14, 1971 - In 1966, ABC television took a chance on creating a Gothic Soap Opera targeted at the after-school teen crowd.  Dark Shadows, starring Jonathan Frid as the enigmatic vampire Barnabas Collins was a cult hit that lasted for some 5 years.   The success of the TV version had the producers immerse the characters into merchandising,   Movies, and in 1971,  the Sunday Comics.   The Sunday-only strip was produced by Ken Bald,  a talented veteran sunday comic artist.  The strip stayed close to the TV formula,  producing continuity stories for it's short run.   Unfortunately the intro of the strip was in the waning last month of the TV show run.  This limited the run of the strip to only a few newspapers and limited the duration to only a single year.   The cult status of the show makes these very sought-after.    Issued in Tab-size or smaller, the market for these is very strong.    Full-Color strips sell very well at very high premium in any size.   (Note: In 2012, a glut of New York Daily News from 1971 was put on the EBAY market.   The result is a price adjustment that has made these much more eonomical than in previous years.)
