There’s another fantastic selection of comics, annuals, books, free gifts and magazines await you in the Phil-Comics eBay auctions this week.
More first issues of some great weekly comics are on offer, rare humour comics and some horror classics, too – although you may feel you’ve got your share of that kind of thing already…
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.
