“The Perishers” strip art, rare Doctor Who annual and more offered in latest Phil-Comics auction

The early December auction from eBay comics auction house Phil-Comics is up and running, with nearly 300 listings, including gems such as original “The Perishers” art by Dennis Collins, a good run of early 2000AD comics, a rare 1969 Doctor Who annual – and a sought-after “Johnny Seven One Man Army” toy, released in 1964 by Topper Toys… but will it make its £1000 reserve?

The vast majority starting at the usual 99p with no reserve, so all can get stuck in. Perhaps you will find a few elusive items for your collection – here are some highlights…
