All the books with dates of 1990 are 10.5 inches tall, which is 1/2 an inch taller than the standard comic book. This means that they don't fit standard comic book bags, boards or boxes and tend to have the top of the book bent. It may be difficult to find unbent copies. All these books have the same Frazetta Museum ad on the back cover.
Issues with dates of 1991 are only 10 inches tall and are standard size which reduces the likelyhood of them geting bent tops. These issues all have the same "Thief of Sherwood" ad on the back cover.
After publishing Corbo#1 in 1987, Sword In Stone Productions (in 1988) bought parts of the comic book division of Charlton Publications, which had effectivly ceased publishing in 1986. In 1989, Roger Broughton (publisher of Sword In Stone) then bought the rights to past American Comics Group material. Almost all the material published under this A-Plus imprint, which started in 1990, are reprints from those two companies. Starting in the mid-1990's Broughton began publishing from those same sources of material under the name America's Comic Group (ACG)/Avalon Communications.
"This company's [A-Plus] line consists of new and reprint material, including classic stories from Charlton and ACG archives, as well as having an exclusive licence to reproduce the classic paintings of Frank Frazetta as comic covers! This month sees the debut of a real cult favorite, Herbie, and also two series with Frazetta covers." from Diamond Comic Distributors' Previews #18, A-Plus Comics first listing.
Overall, A+ Comics published 28 comic books over a 2 year period.
