Re: What comics did you buy today?

Made two purchases from eBay.com.au

I bought today two issues of the best of Whoopee! as well as a copy of the 1959 Dandy book.

I should have these purchases by sometime after Easter. (One lot has to come from the other side of the country, while the other is coming from far north Queensland)

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

I had been undecided about bidding on a bundle of Buster (which had included the pre merge issue before Cor!! joined Buster.)

It had slipped through my fingers. One day, I will get that elusive issue one day. :(

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Wow, my luck is in lately. Another landmark issue this morning, and it's the Beano's 20th anniversary issue (week ending 2/8/1958) This will be sent via Skypax later this week. Only the 20th anniversary issue of the Dandy to go. (and of course the 15 remaining 1990 issues of the Topper to go. Update...

I also just ordered the 2020 Specials Bundle from the 2000AD Shop.
I am looking into buying that myself in the next week or two. :D

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I won today a 1948 issue of the Beano, issue dated the fortnight ending 7/8/1948 And if I am also correct, this would have been the 10th anniversary issue (although DCT wouldn't have celebrated the event then.) Update: 14/2/2020 Final purchase before my holidays, and bought volumes two to six of Jam...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Last year, I bought a reproduction copy of the 1958 Beano Book. I decided this morning to buy a reproduction of the first Beano Book (the 1940 Beano Book) I should get that by the time I get back from holidays in early March (it takes around ten days for the Book to be printed and sent to SkyPax (I ...

Re: What Christmas Comics Have You Bought Recently?

I got in the mail yesterday, this year's Christmas issue of the Beano.

I will be picking up in the mail tomorrow, a personalized copy of the 1958 Beano Book (sent via a parcel forwarding service, as otherwise, I wouldn't be able to buy.)

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Probably the last eBay purchase before Christmas (as I have to send my reproduction 1958 Beano Book next week) is the 65th anniversary issue of the Dandy (7/12/2002) And considering the seller (who I have done business with in the past) it won't arrive until early next year.. Drat! I just found out ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

After procrastinating for the last six months or so, I decided to buy a reproduction Beano annual from the Beano Shop. (the 1958 book) It will be sent through the parcel forwarding service I have been using for the last twelve months or so. I noticed it is selling now for £19.95 (ex VAT plus £3.50 s...

Re: Correction for the specials gallery

I don't honestly know.

I will be checking out whether DCT have done a special for that year on eBay.

Correction for the specials gallery

Just letting Al know that I have made a correction in the specials gallery. For the Bananaman summer special that is currently listed as the 1987 special is incorrect. https://comicsuk.co.uk/images/Specials/Bananaman/BananamanSpecial_1987(SS).jpeg This is in fact the cover for the 1988 special.
