Re: Ebay sales: Good price for the seller, buyer or both??

Someone got the first appearance of Superman in a British comic (advertisement that is) for £2.50 with postage included. The seller has no idea what he's just sold!

Re: Victor/Warlord/Hotspur Picture Library

I mentioned that to one of the editors at the time when I was looking to publish a Billy the Cat collection. DCT weren't interested then but maybe this has changed?

Re: Ebay - you want how much for it???

Would you give 20000 to a new seller with no, maybe even negative, feedback? Might be the case.

Re: What comics did you buy today?
