This weekend sees the latest Phil-Comics auction on eBay draw to a close, with 280 vintage comic listings on offer, including surely one of the most bizarre girls comics tie-ins ever licensed – to those of us looking backing and wondering just who thought it was a good idea at the time.
Here are just a few of the items on offer, with many lots closing for bidding on Sunday 1st August 2021, including books inspired by various TV series created by Gerry Anderson, and British comics with free gifts, too.
Perhaps the oddest item on offer, to modern eyes? A Girl comic branded carpet sweeper, one of the many items licensed for sale by publisher Hulton at the height of the weekly comic’s success…
Run by Phil Shrimpton, Phil Comics specialises in vintage comics and related items such as annuals, holiday specials, free gifts and original artwork.
Holding monthly eBay auctions, often with 500+ listings, they aim to bring a diverse array of items – and are always on the lookout for vintage comic collections, either to buy or auction on commission.
• Bidding on items in this auction begins to close on Saturday 29th May 2021
