British comics collector Steven Holder dropped us a line at downthetubes to tell us he was “having a bit of a clear out” that we think will interest our readers, as it includes some fab Marvel UK goodies including annuals and comics.

Lots of his comics and (boxed) Transformer toys are currently being sold by www.hidengeek.com, but there was a box of what he described as “random stuff” – classic 1980s British comics such as Scream, Crisis and various annuals – he simply didn’t know what to do with.

You can view pictures of the items he’s open to offers on here on Facebook, in the album titled “Secret Stores“.

“Some of it is a bit worn,” Steven acknowledges, but “Some of it is mint.”

So if you’re interested in a complete run of Marvel UK’s Secret Wars comics (sans gifts), issues of Daredevils featuring Alan Moore-scribed Captain Britain tales, or copies of Scream … or you lost your Sleaze Brothers badge many years ago, drop Steven a line via Facebook for details.

There are even issues of some great British fanzines such as FA and ARK in the mix.

He’s open to offers or trade. You pay postage or collect.
