Massive “New Eagle” collection offered at Heritage Auctions

All change at "New Eagle" in September 1983 - and probably not for the better for many readers at the time.

All change at New Eagle in September 1983 – and probably not for the better for many readers at the time.

Up for auction on Heritage Auctions right now is a massive collection of New Eagle – 500 comics that include issues ranging from the the first revamp issue (cover dated 24th September 1983) issue to the February, 1993 issue, with skips and some duplication.

Dan Dare, his arch-nemesis the Mekon, and Doomlord appear throughout and of course these later issues include appearances by the MASK 1980s toyline, which shared the title of the magazine for a time.

Also included are two Action Force army figures (with one grappling hook and string) with an Action Force mini-comic and a poster, and three sets of plastic vampire teeth.

THREE SETS OF VAMPIRE TEETH!? What are you waiting for?
