Anderson & Garland‘s next Collectors’ Auction takes place next week (Thursday 30th June 2022) and includes a number of British and US comic lots, many of them of interest, perhaps to fans of western comics – but there are other items, too, including Star Wars and Gerry Anderson TV show-related toys.
The auction is a firm favourite with specialist collectors and enthusiasts alike, featuring comics, toys, costume, film memorabilia, advertising memorabilia and more – a catalogue that has something to suit all tastes and budgets.
Here’s a small selection of the items on offer…
