Re: Swaps 1930s DC Thomson/John Leng Annuals

Haven't got any for sale/swap, but I have seen a black and white picture of the second Fun Book For Boys somewhere, and I also have been looking for it for quite a few years. The title Three-Men-In-A-Tub is correct, and I can confirm that at least the first Adventure Land annual did originally have ...

Just got the first Triumph annual today, from 1937. I've been looking for them for years and only managed to get the 1939 one previously. They hardly ever come up for sale anywhere. There's only 5 in the set, and the 1940 one seems to be so scarce that we haven't got a picture of the cover in our ga...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Not quite today, but certainly recent purchases. I've started to collect early annuals with dust jackets. I've fallen in love with the designs of the 'Chums Annuals', however they are proving nigh on impossible to find with surviving dust jackets. So far, I've managed to find three (1925, 1936-7, 1...

Re: A word of warning

Further update........I had cause to amend one of my promo listings after the promo period, but I 'increased' the price before selling to the highest bidder. I only got a £1 deduction. So it looks as though if you lower your price after the promo period and sell, you get the 10% deducted, if you inc...
