Dear Compal customers,
Welcome to our August/September catalogue. We continue to team up with the-saleroom.com to provide you with real time bidding, viewable online, as bids are placed by our customers who have registered their details. Please have a look in the How To Bid section for all the information you need if you would like to bid online and how our new Timed Auction works.
Our June catalogue delivered some exceptional early Beano results with No 2 at £4650 and No 21 first Xmas issue at £2550. Early issues between 22 and 28 all excelled between £700-800 each.
In this catalogue you will see a clean copy of The Beano No 1 with its original flyer and further early issues between Nos 7-51 - all offered separately. There’s a long run of wartime Dandy Christmas numbers and 1948 and 1949 complete years in exceptionally high grades. The Beano 1943 year is also available in the same condition and there’s a fresh looking Beano Book from 1942 as well.
The first four Mickey Mouse Weekly comics stand out for attention as do good runs of G.G.Swan’s wartime propaganda favourites, New Funnies and Thrill Comics. There’s a great Oor Wullie artwork where the dog runs off with his Beezers and drops them in the river – not even Romeo No 1’s scarce free gift Wishing Ring can magic them back in time for skool.
One of the most elusive 1960s free gifts is TV 21 No 3’s Fireball XL5 cut out and build model and we have most of it with a facsimile card of the rest at lot 154. Our final selection of Dalek Swapit models are con-gre-gat-ing a few lots further on and some mouth-wateringly rare Scottish edition Vulcan comics, proof issues and unread Holiday Specials make up the final part from the archive of Jan Shepheard, long time Fleetway art editor.
Our US Golden Age section highlights a CGC 7.0 copy of Batman #6 and a 1941 Superman Comics #8 at No Reserve! EC comics and Captain Marvel are well represented and 22 lots of Amazing Spider-Man lead the Silver and Bronze Age. A timely first Ant-Man appearance coincides with the current Hollywood movie and Tales To Astonish #27 awaits at lot 254. Runs of Fantastic Four, Thor, X-Men, Miracleman and some groovy Undergrounds complete the picture.
Please enjoy September’s selection
