Blimey. If I had 75 quid…

Are there any scans of this knocking around? It'd be interesting to at least see what was inside.

Eep – so you did. For some reason, I earlier only found the thread where you got the thing in the first place.

Nobody's going to pay £75 for that.

... And if you're gonna put it in the bulb anyway, if it doesn't sell, you might as well lower the price.

You'd hope that was a joke. I can't imagine strontium71 is really going to chuck a piece of comics history in the trash.

I’d have thought the little laughing face at the end would have given it away that , of course I was joking  ;) But yeah I’ll just relist it if it doesn’t sell.

And one for the 'over my head' thread, on my part.

I swear, sometimes when I shake my head, I hear a rattling sound...

You’re right. I’ll have to console myself with the money it just sold for...

Well to be fair he was right. No one is paying £75 for it.

Well done on getting £88.

Well, fuck me!

The irony here is that anyone that daft probably hasn't learned to read yet.

Seems like a pretty fair price for an unreleased comic. And a small piece of IPC history.
