Early 2000AD Progs and more, some with free gifts, offered in latest Phil-Comics-Auction

Over on eBay, Phil-Comics late August auction is now live, offering a huge range of vintage British and US comics.

2000AD Prog 2 with free gift

Highlights include early issues of 2000AD – with Prog 2 offered with its free gift, a huge number of copies of the DC Thomson humour title Topper, copies of Lady Penelope, the final issue of Eagle, a rare proof copy of an issue TV Comic, and first issues of several British comics, including Cracker, Cor!! and Star Wars, some with free gifts.

A genuinely rare item - a colour proof for TV Comic 827, cover dated 21st October 1967 which has an ink stamp mark to the cover dated 28/9 1967, so around four weeks before the comic hit newsagents. A very interesting and rare piece of memorabilia from the printing house and editorial offices of Polystyle Publications, with the added bonus of including the highly collectable Doctor Who strip
