I didn't choose Comic strips, Ebay has automatically switched 99% of my listing to that heading. There's an uproar amongst both UK comic buyers and sellers as it makes it really difficult to search and sell what you want now. If you look at the new Franco/UK/Belgian heading, there are only 10,000 or so listings when there were 100,000 listings under UK comics before.

I've spent an hour this morning already changing some of my saved searches and some of my listings whilst holding on the phone to complain to Ebay!

I complained via a live chat. They suggested using the Comics/Graphic Novels option.

Just looking at US Comics and even though I chose silver age superhero comics category what came up was just modern comics. They've really messed up.

It happened to my listings as well.

Also when I go to correct, I found that eBay has cleared out all the specifics and that I have to re-enter them.

He's probably bought it for a pittance at a car boot, and thinks its eBay sale price will pay his Saturday bar bill.

And the seller is ripping off overseas buyers, wanting £50 for the postage to boot.

The seller does point out why it is such a valuable item:
I am asking for £1,200 as it is the original turtles and art work in side

Good grief. Currently on eBay are a selection of Cracker comics, but a bit too high for the price (seven issues for £45?)

Here is one listing.

One of them might include my only professional published script. For Hector the Collector. Priceless.

Phil-comics had the Beano-Dandy summer special at a start price of around £495 which I thought was madness. It sold for £560.00. I don't think it's worth that much.
