I watched The Accountant with Ben Affleck last night and loved his stash of comics in a drawer including an Action #1, All American Comics #16 (1st Green Lantern) and a More Fun comics #52 (1st Spectre). Not surprisingly all DC considering he plays Batman!

On Dickinson's Real Deal yesterday a bloke brought along his collection of sixties DC and marvel comics. About 100 of them. The expert didn't make an offer as they were outside her area of expertise. Owner took them to auction where they were divided into categories. They made £900+.

Cheers for that Steve, I've just downloaded it. The presenter blonde was useless but it looked a nice set of comics. The seller seemed chuffed with his £774 take home from the £945 total price gained!

Was the first Hawkman among his collection? Only saw a portion of the cover. It wasn't a Showcase issue.

The commission is usually 15% plus VAT. I like to try to work it out mentally before Dickinson gives the final figure.

I couldn't tell either but I didn't think it was. I've never watched the programme before so I downloaded 6 episodes and watched them all on fast forward until I found the right one! If anyone else does the same, it's in York. Simple maths helps keep the brain young!

It's not my favourite antique show. Typical itv fare. One dealer bought a load of china or glass once. He didn't make any profit on it as the voiceover said he dropped the lot putting it into his car boot. It's things like that that make me worry about the Bayeux tapestry coming to England. Supposing the courier leaves it on the train? :D

952 years safely living in France and we're bound to do something to it within weeks of having it on loan! I don't think they have decided where it will be shown yet have they?

I hope he's not there overnight when all the exhibits come to life. :)

Sensible place for it. I'll go and see it, that's for sure.

I suppose it can be regarded as an early form of comic strip.

The tapestry coming over is really awesome tbh. I think they'll be utterly enormous interest. Probably the most significant historical artifact for this countries history.

I'm actually very surprised that the french would even consider letting it leave France - we have a great reputation that once we have stuff it never leaves these shores again...

I wonder what we could swap for it :?:

Maybe they'd take a couple da Vinci's?

Sweeten it with the Elgin marbles and we could have a deal.
