Action Comic Collection
« on: 08 April, 2018, 06:34:35 pm »
Well, with the impending loss of a job it's looking like I'm going to have to make a few hard choices so I'm going to start with the low hanging fruit in the best tradition of our glorious government.  I have a full run of the 1976 / 77 that is in need of a new home.  Issue 1 has a tear to the front cover but issue 2 has the Hookjaw iron on transfer. 

To sweeten the pot, this also includes the Martin Barker History with the reprint of the pulped issue along with the 1977 Summer Special.  A number of issues have the usual newsagents markings on but other than the first issue, none of the others suffers from any major defects.  All are bagged and boarded.

This is an interesting part of tooth's history and it is with reluctance that I'm parting with it but necessity is the mother of intention.  I'm looking for £250 which is pretty much average based on recent ebay sales and would be willing to travel for collection / delivery to try and minimise delivery costs.

Nice collection Tjm, if you sold Bakers Book, number one and two and the Holiday Special you would get a fair bit for them, although I know its a hassle selling individually.

Aye, I'd rather shift them as a collection but I know the downside there too.  They make for interesting reading, particularly in the context of how Tooth evolved, but unfortunately circumstances dictate.  <sigh>

Thanks for the comics! If anyone is thinking of buying from Tjm86 I can thoroughly recommend him. Comics are as described, well looked after and fairly priced. Hand-delivered as well!

Thank you sir, glad you're happy.  Thanks for the interesting drive into the wilds of the South Downs too.  Part of the world I've not had the pleasure of before.

Would now be a good time to mention a Cerebus the Aardvark graphic novel collection I'm thinking of shifting?
