(c. 1964) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Jinx is filled with incredible gems in bite sized pieces. Apart from a wealth of incredible effects, I love the commentaries by Annemann. The historical impact that The Jinx appears to have had is quite amazing. So much seems to have come from this publication.
