1794 needed
« on: 03 March, 2016, 07:37:34 am »
It's been a rollercoaster ride (if rollercoasters were just you spending money and having a rapidly increasing number of boxes in your house) but thanks to IndigoPrime and blixab and eBay, I'm 1 comic away from an entirely complete collection.

1794!

If anyone has a copy they're willing to sell, please let me know.

Might be worth pinging this person a line on Gumtree, given that the collection isn't complete: https://www.gumtree.com/p/comics/2000ad-collection-430-to-1960/1156708795

Nice one - I never check Gumtree, I do scan Preloved from time to time.

Actually, now I think about it, I still need a few annuals. Best get them sharpish as well.

He's had some interest in the complete collection, sadly.

Here it is.


Pretty neat flat copy but does have a small tear on the lower left corner of the rear cover.



Yours for £2.50 to cancer research uk incl p&p
Pm me if you want it

Yes!

So, all being well, a few remaining PayPal payments to the fine members here and I am done. I sort of like the idea of a random issue from 2012 being the last one to track down (but will it be the last one to arrive?)

This thread fills me with a warm completionist glow.

It can be made even warmer if someone could sell me a copy of Megazine 352.  It's all I need to re-complete my run of both the weekly and the Meg.

Pretty please, someone.  I have groats awaiting.  :)

COLLECTION COMPLETE

Listen to "Fiesta" by the Pogues, which I've been humming for about a week now, and imagine me putting progs 10 and 1794 into their rightful places, and grinning from ear to ear.

I started in December of 2014, so I think I've done okay.
