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

I’ve noticed that in a few charity shops recently. Shame

Re: What comics did you buy today?

It hasn't arrived yet but I'm really happy with the purchase of issue #1-42 of Tiger from 1954/1955. I've been after #1 for ages and have narrowly missed it a couple of times in the last 6 months alone so to get a whole run is brilliant. My completist nature is saying that I've got the most difficul...

Re: Articles about British comics!

Hi, ok, so I might be interested in this, and maybe others here would be as well, I guess I'm just wondering if you could give some more context about who you are, what your business is, where it's based, why you think an article provided to you would help, what rate of pay are you offering, how lo...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

March was actually an amazing month for selling as I managed to sell 3 or 4 times more than I do in a normal month and have managed to totally replenish my comic "war chest"! :D I also managed to buy quite a few bits and bobs but the most interesting were: Young Brides #1 - T&P - 1953 Lady Penelope ...

Re: Does your partner have any interest in your comics?

Had a day out in Hexham today with my wife, I looked round the charity shops and bookshops while she looked at whatever she looked at. I found a lovely old Judy annual from 1881 (similar to Punch), which had some Ally Sloper content. When we met up again she asked what I had been buying as my book ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I An alternative would be to sell it via phil-comics. Phil takes quite a high percentage of the price and you’ll still have to send the comic to him. I thought I’d bought Tiger #1 last year in great condition for £100 but it never arrived and the seller went quiet on me. Luckily I got my money back...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I have considered putting it on eBay but I'm worried the buyer will falsely claim they didn't receive it. It's happened before and I've had to give a refund despite the buyer having no proof they didn't receive it. "Please find attached an image of the empty space where the comic should be, what mo...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

I just saw a box of early Tigers with a £45 price tag on top. It wasn't until I got home that I realised it was the first 49 issues. Apart from staple rust they are in excellent condition. He has the complete volume two of Eagle for £85. That kind of haul only happens rarely but when it does, it's ...

Re: Overlooked early children's comics

My hobby is collecting old comics , magazines, old books( victorian for example)and annuals . usually spending an average of £2 per week with a limit of £5. I could spend more but for me this is just a fun loose change type hobby. I tend to overlook nursery comics but these shown from the 1959/60s ...

Monster Monthly #1 - Marvel - 1982 Strange that I'd never heard of that one given the date and that I had the full House/Halls of Hammer/Horror. Just must have slipped by me.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

The original run of Action ran from issue 1 (cover dated 14 February 1976) to issue 37 (cover dated 23 October 1976). Issue 37 was pulled by senior editor John Sanders and ordered to be immediately pulped. As a result, some far sighted individuals who had received an advance copy cleverly decided t...
