A Look Back at “The Magic Medallion” by CAPP for E.L. Publications

Good morning everyone,

Ten months ago, this blog covered “The Growth Formula” by CAPP and E.L. Publications. That previous post provided some details regarding the history of Ed Lundt’s (E.L.) Publications and its impact on the size community just as the Internet was coming into focus. I won’t repeat the background given in that earlier article, but I do want to revisit E.L. Publications and further explore the roots of the present-day size community.

Thus, today let’s look back at another comic from the 1990s. Specifically, we’ll take a gander at “The Magic Medallion,” a nine-page (including the text-only cover) black and white comic from 1992.

The art and story in this comic are basic, but enjoyable. This harkens back to the early days for many size-fetish fans when the Internet was merely beginning to be established. It was a time when those fans, including myself, dreamed of stories in which giantesses, such as the famous Nancy Archer from 1958’s “Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman,” could explore carnal desires. Such carnal desires had been teased in movies like 1962’s “Boccaccio ’70” and 1965’s “Village of the Giants” in which men were placed in or held onto tops worn by giant voluptuous women. However, sex between a giant woman and a normal man was not portrayed until works like this one from E.L. Publications appeared. Therefore, while the art and story in this comic were basic this still provided something unique. It brought to life the untold story of a giantess who eagerly accepts her supernatural stature and uses it to her sexual advantage. (NOTE: To be most accurate, there were some older erotic works featuring giant women such as “Attack of the 50-Foot Honey” in Hustler Magazine’s June 1983 issue and Kitten Natividad’s “Miss Milky Way” during 1985’s “An Evening with Kitten.” However, I’d argue that those works were not widely disseminated and therefore E.L. Publications felt unique.)

The Magic Medallion begins with a young couple, an unnamed fellow and a curvy lady called Shana, sitting side-by-side on a couch as lovers are wont to do.

Of note, there’s no background, just a featureless white backdrop. As previously mentioned, the art is simple.

This will not shock long-time blog readers, but lo and behold the glowing gemstone around her neck causes Shana to grow!

Some rudimentary lines were added to the background.

Shana continues to increase in size until her dimensions exceeded those which the house can contain. Thus, she breaks through the roof and continues to expand!

(SIDE NOTE: I’d like to take this moment to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Aunt Arabella and her magical gemstone 😉 )

The comic strip ends with Shana disrobing her partner and utilizing his entire body to pleasure herself.

This is a fun comic which provides an enlightening perspective on an era in which widely available comics featuring giant people actually having sex first appeared. Before this era, such content was limited to drawings and stories created by individuals for their personal consumption. Therefore, I recommend The Magic Medallion to growth fans with the caveat that it cannot, to the best of my knowledge, be purchased anywhere. Bust Artist purchased the rights to Ed Lundt’s breast expansion stories, but not his giantess stories. Additionally, Ed has not been publicly active in the size-fetish community since 2007. All that noted, an online search may turn up a copy of The Magic Medallion.

Alongside E.L. Publications, several other creators also produced giantess content during the 1990s. For instance, an adult film company released the low-budget “Attack of the 50 Foot Hooker” in 1994. (NOTE: I can’t recall any other pornographic film of that caliber, meaning a full cast and at least a modicum of a budget, which has explored size themes.) Mainstream releases such as HBO’s 1993 remake of “Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman,” and 1995’s “Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold” were also made.

Furthermore, Anthony Cotto started a FTP site in December 1994 which primarily catered to breast expansion drawings, photo morphs, and stories, but it also hosted some giantess content. Ron H. produced seven issues of a magazine entitled “Black Giantess” which began in 1995 and featured photo collages of gigantic African American women.

Additionally, Katharine Gates mentioned, in the 2017 edition of her book “Deviant Desires: A Tour of the Erotic Edge,” another printed magazine called “Giantess Show” which began publishing in 1995 and listed giantess appearances in various forms of media. (NOTE: If anyone has more information on Black Giantess or Giantess Show please contact me.)

Jabberwocky Graphix’s “The Adventures of Olivia” issue number 5 was originally published in 1996 and featured a story entitled “Big Woman on Campus” in which a growing woman must achieve an orgasm, a so-called “super-climax,” or else grow indefinitely! Lastly, Sterling Comics, produced by Drake C. Letcher, appeared later in the 1990s. For an example of Sterling Comics, see Peculiar Tales #1.

It would give Ed Lundt too much credit to state that he was the sole driving force behind the similar size-creations which followed his comics and magazines. Nonetheless, it does appear that he had some influence and I hope to further explore the extent of that influence in future posts.

That’s it for now folks. Thursday’s review will cover the latest installment of a CGI comic. Until then, keep growing!

  1. Hey Solomon. While talking about old movies featuring giantesses, you missed one. The 30ft bride of Candy Rock starring Lou Costello. Just trying to help you out. Later.

    1. I considered mentioning 30 Ft Bride, but didn’t think that it did anything to advance the sexy potential of giantesses. Village of the Giants and Boccaccio played with the sex appeal of busty ladies as giant women, while 30 Ft Bride felt tame in comparison. That said, I did like the scene of giant-sized Emmy with her head sticking out through a barn roof and her talking about growing even bigger. There wasn’t any visual special effects to accompany that scene, but still, it wasn’t half bad! Most importantly, I appreciate your input and the fact that you’re keeping the memory of 30 Ft Bride alive!
