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.
