I’ve bought Commando comics from them before and if anyone is tempted, they’re reliable and will charge £10 postage on top of the 20% fee.

I'd say that's a good batch covering from 1978 to 1984 and worth £50 of anyone's money. Is it worth the £80 you would end up paying after fees and postage? Then that's someone's decision to make.

Commandos (1000 mark) and various Battle etc Picture Libraries in BHF Dunfermline. There's also some 70s Marvel UK and 70s/80s Beano/Dandy too.

I came across a box full of Commando in the Sue Ryder shop in Catford SE London. All recent £2 issues.

Yup. They are in packs, not individuals. You would need to see them and ask if they can split.

Don't need to anymore. There were about 3 packs left and mainly non-Commando so I got all three and a few extras too! :-) Shall we say that I had a good day and got a quite bit more than the retail price as we also got 3 Gold Key issues of Star Trek, a Tiger, a Bullet and an Action Summer Special along with another Gold Key and a Charlton comic.

And in return for pricing some comics, I was given a freebie of a poor condition issue 1 of Warlord.
