Some details about me

We have been collecting comics and related items since the mid 80's. This does not mean the comics for sale would be to that time period onwards, as we have also purchased issues going back as far as the 1940's (both UK and US style).

We are also an actual "Brick and Mortar" shop located in Carnoustie, Scotland.


Among the issues you will find complete runs, such as Alien Legion Vol.1 by Epic Comics, or Alpha Flight Vol.1 by Marvel comics, as well as large runs of long running titles such as Fantastic Four Vol.1 #'s 148-397, or Thor Vol.1 #'s 229-417.
There will also be a number of titles from independants such as Twisted Tales by Pacific Comics, Razor by London Knight, or The Walking Dead by Aircel.


For the UK comics, they would consist of 2000AD, Eagle (Original & 80's), Warrior, and many more original UK titles. There will also be UK reprint versions of popular US titles by DC and Marvel, such as Secret Wars, Transformers, and Thundercats, to name but a few.


As comic collectors, we have tried our best to accurately describe the items for sale as eveybody's opinion on grading differs. The grades we have given are based on the details within 'The Official Comic Book Price Guide' and 'Overstreet'. See page bottom for grading info.

We have been collecting Trading Cards and CCG's (Collectible Card Games) since the early-mid 90's and stopped around the year 2000, and therefore have a few thousand from titles such as Magic The Gathering, Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5, and many more.

 

We also sell collectible action figures and vintage toys, such as Star Wars, G.I.Joe, Golden Girl, and Masters of the Universe (1980's & 2000's), to name but a few.

We also sell spare parts for vintage figures etc.. But don't worry, we never sell parts from a complete item, we only sell parts if an item is incomplete.


If you have any wants, then please get in touch as it might take quite a while before we have managed to list everything.

All pictures featured will be of the actual item listed. All comics are 1st printings unless stated otherwise. If you're curious about a title you've never seen or heard of before, then check out this site - www.comicvine.com (will tell you plotlines, artists, etc...).
