Bought two copies of the "Fantasy Unlimited Catalogue" which I guess was the catalogue of a comic shop in N1, London: but can't find any info on it online. Does anyone know more about the shop, or even have a picture of it?

Fantasy Unlimited started off as sales list for dealer Alan Austin, becoming an excellent comics fanzine which was eventually retitled Comics Unlimited, running for many years in the seventies.

There's a lovely tribute to him at https://30thcenturycomics.co.uk/alan-austin/

Warrior #19 to complete the set
5 x Commando comics under #30 to replace poorer condition ones
10 x Smash comics to fill more gaps
Little Star #1 - DCT - 1972
A massive collection of Victor comics......just because they were REALLY cheap so I couldn't resist
The New Adventures of Barbarella #1-4 - Virgin - 1981. I'd not come across these before but something grabbed me!
Jag Football Special - 1968 - via this site
Lion Holiday Specials - 1977 & 1978 - via this site
Tiger Holiday Specials 1980 & 1982
