Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

A recent auction of the first three months of 1981 of the Beezer slipped through my fingers today. It was due to end next Saturday morning my time, but was ended early, and it seemed to have been bid on as well (I usually don't bid on items until close to the end) The upside is the fact that I will ...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Won in the early hours this morning in my neck of the woods, a bundle of Toppers from 1980 (including the first A4 issue) Oddly enough, it was from a place I bought from in the past, the Border Bookshop at Todmorden I once bought a number of comics from them early last decade, but had not bought fro...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

If you got the newsletter from 30th Century Comics on Saturday, you will know it is reopening from Monday, but only via mail order.

I bought my first comic from them today in well over a year, and it was the 1982 Jackpot Summer Special.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Today's purchase, while not in the UK comics mold, it is about the history of the Australian comic industry. Bought today from the Angus and Robertson eBay shop, I bought, ""from 'Sunbeams' to sunset: the rise and fall of the Australian Comic Book (1924-1965)" by Graeme Clife. I should get that next...

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. :(

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 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 ...
