Early Captain Britain appearances for sale

Marvel Superheroes Issue 377 - Marvel UKAnother eBay auction, this time Marvel Super-Heroes issues from way back in 1981 in 1982, when Paul Neary was editor in chief at Marvel UK the first time around.

The issues include one issue of Captain Britain written by Alan Moore. Several feature Night Raven text stories which, I suspect, are unlikely to ever be collected.
