I am glad you liked it :) Everything is going as planned, and it won't be long now - I eagerly await the arrival of the slipcases and look forward to fulfilling the orders for the box set :D

At last I've picked up the 1/2 a Million Redskins on the Warpath free gift from Wild West#1, after passing it up numerous times as I thought there were two different versions. So I've got both gifts for #1 and the full run of comics themselves, I think the time has arrived to get them bound!

They're not the best condition overall so will benefit greatly from some spine reinforcement and edge trimming.

Got Modern Boy annual #1 from 1931 still with its original glassine wrapper (well. most of it anyway).

Swift comic #1 I've almost had this comic quite a few times but got outbid at the last second.

And lastly the free gift from Girls Crystal comic #1199 from 1958. The Magic Birthday Wheel. I'll have to wait until nearer Christmas to try it out though.

Spike #1, 2, 3 and 4. Which I bought mainly because 1, 2 and 4 have the free gifts and I remembered the gift very well from #4 as I bought it when I was younger and loved that gift!

Tom Websters first annual compilation from 1920 'Among the Sportsmen'. Lost its paperback covers sadly, but it was only £4 so I had to have it. Some great sketches of Georges Carpentier.
