eBay listings for 27th and 28th May 2014.

I've finally got round to sorting out my next batch of comics going for auction on eBay. The first few comics from my collection dated from 1967 are now making their way into the listings to make things a bit more interesting! Below are a few of the highlights.

I will be listing them on Tuesday and Wednesday for five days. The starting price always reflects the condition of the comic and I always try to describe the faults as comprehensively as I can so the buyer shouldn't be disappointed. 
Any questions can be asked here or on eBay, I will always reply! I will update this post with a link to the listings when they go live.
If you're thinking of bidding, good luck!

Original art from Monica Castillo

I haven't blogged here for quite a while so a post is long overdue!

This post isn't about comics but stays with art. Recently I received a beautiful gift from Monica Castillo in sunny Barcelona, a picture called 'Hello Spring'.

I love her style and the colors are much more vibrant than this photograph shows. There's a lot of detail along with some very fine line work and the colors blend beautifully!

Monica is multi-talented, not only does she create great pictures she is also a superb miniaturist, making tiny furniture and food that really does look good enough to eat! Monica has a blog where she shows all her latest work, you can see it here! It's well worth a look!

If you like what you see Monica also sells her lovely miniature creations too! You can find her shop here!

Thank you so much Monica, it's a wonderful gift!

Coming soon to an eBay listing near you...

I've been neglecting this blog for far too long! It's my old excuse of being too busy with everything else to post regularly here. But the time has come to get some info out to those interested in my collection, because a huge amount of it will be going for sale on eBay over the next several months including a lot of 1960's stuff as well as a few from as far back as the 1950's.
   The main reasons are a lack of time to enjoy these artistic treasures and a lack of space to store them. 

   I am still currently listing early 1970's comics, mainly Marvel and DC, and will slowly work my way back in time to get to the more interesting stuff later in the year. Here's an idea of some of the titles that will be for sale in the coming months, most are from the mid to late 1960's:

Action Comics                   Hawkman
Adventure Comics              Incredible Hulk
Amazing Spider-Man           Journey Into Mystery (1st series)
Aquaman                          Justice League of America
Avengers                          Sgt Fury and His Howling Commandos
Batman                            Showcase
Captain America                Silver Surfer
Captain Marvel                  Sub-Mariner
Daredevil                          Superman
Detective Comics               Tales of Suspense
Fantastic Four                   Tales to Astonish
Flash                               Thor
Green Lantern                   Wonder Woman

and many lesser titles covering genres such as Humor, War, Western, Romance, and a few TV tie-ins.

Selling this little lot should clear a bit of shelf space!

   More detailed information will be posted nearer to the eBay listing dates.
