The last purchase I guess was Simpsons Comics #16 and 17. They only cost £0.99 each in eBay auctions.

Just bought:

Heroes Anonymous #1 - 5
Fleener #1 - 2
Sergio Aragones Funnies #6
Roswell #1 - 5
Futurama Comics #40 (the last one I need for a full set)

Bought through mycomicshop.com, I tried using your affiliate link so you could get discounts but it was confusing the hell out of me and kept timing out and whatnot so I have no idea if it worked on your end :(

No. It didn't. If it timed out, then it wouldn't have done. Sometimes browsers can throw time out errors, even though the server is online, so trying another browser would be worth a shot.

Yeah it was really annoying me. I would get to the end of the checkout process and then it would throw me right back to the start. It took me about 7 shots before it got through to the confirmation page (luckily it did only charge me once). So friggin annoying.

This parcel came today, but #79 turned out to be the UK edition, not the US edition like I was expecting. Given that the amount I paid in most cases would've only gotten me one issue, I'm fine with that. I can sell it on again later with the other 198 UK issues. :P

* Gary is currently bidding £0.10 each on Super Spectacular #1 and THOH #11. :P

There's a few days yet though.

^ I also threw in Bart Simpson #24 into the 10p mix. But Super Spectacular #1 was raised to £3.20.

I also lost the 80pg Radioactive Man Colossal and THOH #4. :(

I've found a lot of all Bongo Free For All's too. But for now, I'm only keeping watch, and I'll bid in a few days. :P

My order from My Comic Shop arrived!

Futurama #40 (now have a complete set)
Sergio Aragones Funnies #6 (now just need #1)
Fleener #1
Fleener #2
Heroes Anonymous #1
Heroes Anonymous #2
Heroes Anonymous #3
Heroes Anonymous #4
Roswell #2
Roswell #3
Roswell #4
Roswell #5
Hopster's Tracks #1

The two Zongo books (Fleener) are pretty weird. All black and white, the letters are all hand-written. The first issue has no talking whatsoever, and the panels are tiny for a comic (they look like there could be as many as 10 or 12 per page). Hopster's is completely black and white, but has dialogue. Roswell and Heroes looked the most interesting, Roswell is a standard full-colour comic, but Heroes is black and white plus only a single shade of color used per issue (for example, one issue uses blue tints, the next uses red, the next uses green, etc). Can't wait to have time to sit down and read them.

Roswell is quit funny. It is a parody of US peoples craziness about little green men from outer space, and technology as a whole back in the 50'ies. Things go completely mad at times. I have 1 to 4 in one book.

I recently bought Bart Simpson 69, but because I didn't have the money in my paypal account rather than having to use my bank, I have to wait until around the 28th before the guy will mail it, which is fair, as he's waiting for the cheque to clear.

I just made a nice haul of Simpsons Comics #1 straight through to #72 for £50.

According to the prices used on MyComicShop.com, those 72 would be worth about £400, which is a nice 700% profit. :P

I'm gonna wait on another auction of Radioactive Man Comics before I ask my old man for the funding. :P
