I’ve just added a small selection of UK Simpsons Comics to eBay. The lot includes #1, complete with poster.
Talking of eBay, a lot of comics artwork recently sold by IPC is now being offered by former Nostalgia and Comics owner Phil Clarke, the same dealer selling boards at various UK marts. Boards being offered include Robot Archie, Adam Eterno and the Steel Claw. Board prices seem to be around the £100 mark, by a variety of artists.
