Four in One Gang and Thrills Shorts

Total Issues: 1

The title suggests an omnibus from previous volumes of Gang Shorts and Thrills Shorts, but the copy seen contains Gang Shorts #3 & #4, Occult Shorts #2 and Weird Story Magazine #2 so it is possible there were different contents in different copies.

Four in One Weird and Occult Shorts

Total Issues: 1

This magazine probably had only one official issue. It was an attempt by Swan to eliminate unsold issues of various publications. The Four in One, subtitled "Supernatural Yarns", was four separate magazines re-packaged within a new external cover, which shows a vampire rising from a coffin. Each of the magazines is complete including front and back covers.

The actual contents varied from copy to copy and were rarely limited to purely supernatural titles.
