Dear Compal Customers,
Welcome to our Aug/September 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 June catalogue excelled with £5000 for The Dandy Monster Comic 1, £2550 for No 2 and a whopping £1920 for the 1948 issue with Puppeteer Korky on the front cover. These three high grade examples were from the Brenda Butler Archive, some more of which are following in this auction with Broons books to the fore and a magnificent copy of the Magic Fun Book from 1942.
A further selection of individual Beano comic issues from 1940-41 are also here between Nos 92 -149, many in bright, fresh condition and there are several lots from the Bob Monkhouse Archive including Boy’s papers No 1s from the 1800s, 1940s Knockout, Radio Fun and Tip Top in bound volumes and a run of scarce Wonderman comics (at lot 82).
Our customers also love John Wayne and his first five adventure comics are followed by a rare board of original artwork by Walt Howarth showing the cover of No 12 (lots 103 and 104). Famous Romance Library are scarce and also here along with a superb run of Schoolgirls Picture Library
In six bound volumes, all publisher’s file copies.
The hugely successful run of Jackie - The Musical this year has prompted strong interest in the original magazine and we have the first issue from 1964 on offer at lot 130, complete with Beatles pull-out centrefold. At the other end of the Sixties spectrum International Times was a subversive, underground music paper avidly reporting the rise of those three tantalising taboos: sex, drugs and rock and roll. We have 14 early issues in flat, fresh condition at lot 129. A similar opus from 1970 ‘Cyclops – the first English Adult Comic Paper’ is a few lots further on. It only lasted for 4 issues and they are all here, all scarce.
Our US section highlights [vg-fn] examples of Avengers 1 and 2 with Avengers 54 First Ultron CGCd at 9.6. There are long runs of Daredevil, Fantastic Four and X-Men with fresh copies of Iron Man, Silver Surfer and Tomb Of Dracula.
Please enjoy our September selection.
