Phil-Comics latest comics auction offers Trigan Empire art by Don Lawrence , rare “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” toy, and much more

The latest Phil-Comics eBay auction is now live, with a very diverse selection of over 400 listings, include an original page of “Trigan Empire” artwork, the work of series co-creator Don Lawrence for Look and Learn, a rare 1944 Magic-Beano Book and, slightly swaying away from comics, a complete The Man From U.N.C.L.E. rifle set from the 1960s.

The rarity of the latter has, not surprisingly, already attracted buds of over £250, and there’s interest, too in the tie-in figures also on offer.

Run by Phil Shrimpton, the award-winning Phil-Comics specialises in vintage comics and related items such as annuals, holiday specials, free gifts and original artwork. 

“We believe this is the widest range of items offered in our auctions to date,” says Phil.

“You’ll find numerous bound volumes and, interestingly, a good stash of 1950s Australian comics.”
