Dear Compal Customers,
Welcome to our May/June catalogue. Our successful team up with the-saleroom.com continues to provide you with real time bidding, viewable online, as bids are placed by our customers who have registered their details.
Our March 2016 auction resulted in The Beano complete year of 1945 realising a whopping £3250 for the 26 fortnightly issues and individual Beanos between numbers 76-100 selling for £220-360 each. More early issues from lot 27 feature below.
In this catalogue we are proud to offer annuals from the Brenda Butler archive, a collection started by Brenda in the early 70s when she collected only the highest grade available pieces concentrating on DC Thomson’s prodigious output. These items were logged, stored and lovingly read over a 40 year period and are now coming onto the market for the first time.
One of the stars from the archive is a pristine copy of the first Dandy Monster Comic from 1939, originally a DC Thomson / John Leng ‘library’ copy and verified as such by them. You’ll find it at lot 18 followed by the second annual, also a library copy, along with a superb 1953 Oor Wullie Book at lot 120 as well as several more beauties in between.
Also on offer is the final part of 1880s artwork from Life and Harper’s Bazaar, rare 1930s Christmas comics by C Arthur Pearson, Oh Boy! comics from 1948 drawn almost entirely by budding cartoonist, Bob Monkhouse, a rare Eagle No 1 pre-publication proof and Dan Dare’s Ray Gun with original box - (take a breath..) – Commando War Stories in Pictures are also here, issues 1-30 offered individually. WOW!
Creature From The Black Lagoon is a very scarce paperback from 1954 at lot 104 and the 1970s is represented by a brilliant run of Pocket Chiller Library.
Our US section stars a CGC 9.6 copy of Fantastic Four 48 from 1966, a Near Mint minus copy of Iron Man 55 and strong runs of Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil, Thor and X-Men. We also offer original sketches from Alex Ross and Frank Miller.
Please enjoy our June selection.
