As this strand has been resurrected I've had a think and, from memory, the most I've paid in a single transaction for anything was £560 for the first three Bunty Summer Specials 1963-1965.

Good Grief. Hope they were good.

For a single comic, probably the £165 I paid for World's Finest Comics #13 (sorry to drag US titles into the discussion). For a batch of comics (excluding stock for my business), probably the £400 I spent on a fairly sizable pile of Eagle's a few years back, which happily included the whole of vol I. :)

This website may be called Comics UK, but that doesn't mean foreign comics are off topic here at the forum! Heck, a lot of newspaper strips are actually American. :D

For actual comics I don't think I have spent more than around £15.00 I have gone a bit mad on some of the Absolute and Omnibus hardcover editions that Marvel and DC are want to produce these days though. they tend to go for between £30 to £50 each.
