I have noticed that these have steadily risen in price, possibly a sign of the times, or blame Face Book :roll: .

I was very surprised, the last time I saw them sell they sold for between 50 and 100 euro and I thought that was expensive :shock:

Have you seen the custom comics and do you know if they are hard to ID next to and original comic ?

Yes maybe facebook is the problem, but also a lot more collectors and a fewer comics could be the reason :?

I don’t collect this sort of thing, so have never looked at an original and a repo up against each other, sorry.
They do look cool though when graded or in acrylic as a set, that’s why this has caught my eye as a set and would buy a set at a sensible price if I was ever lucky to find one. :)
On Face book they all seem to go for well north of £500! :shock:
And as you said, more collectors chasing loose runs and a finite amount of comics will always drive up prices. :wink:
