    The Thriller (1916)    (about)
    The Thriller is an obscure magazine made up of unsold issues of The Black Cat. The one issue that has been examined is number four. At this time it has been impossible to ascertain how many issues of The Thriller were published. A 1916 issue of The Black Cat contains an ad for The Thriller (probably #1) containing the August through November 1915 issues of The Black Cat.
