Our September auction delivered some superb results with our Beano No 1 selling for £17,300, the complete Beano year of 1943 hammer at £2850 and the Beano Book 3 (1942) at £3050. Individual early issues continued in the high hundreds in fresh condition.
In this catalogue it’s the turn of The Dandy with a file copy No 1 and its original Flyer at lot 35 and Dandy Monster Comics 1, 2 and 3. War years Christmas Dandys also feature as does the 1944 Dandy complete year where the condition of all 26 comics is exceptional. The Beano is led by a high grade No 5 and more 1939 early issues between 12 and 75 (2nd Xmas), all offered separately. High grade Beano and Magic-Beano books are here too, as is a Dudley Watkins Beano front cover artwork from 1969, one of the last he ever drew – Wow!
Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck ‘Wisequack’ cards were given away with Quax penny chocolate bars in 1939. To find the complete 48 issue set is truly rare - and they have their Wisequack album with them – a mouth-watering prospect at lot 11.

Other rarities include Mickey’s first annual, the rarest Rupert Book from 1942 and the Bonzo Laughter album No 1 from 1935.
