Phil-Comics Christmas Covers!

Phil-Comics, the auction site which has regular auctions over on ebay, is to release a Christmas Covers book early next month. The book will be 76 pages thick and collects all the front covers of the Beano and Dandy Christmas issues published between 1937 - 1969 into one compact volume.

Here is what Phil-Comics had to say on their facebook page:

"It gives us great pleasure to announce the publication of our first book on our two favourite comics, entitled:

The Dandy and The Beano - Classic Christmas Comic Covers 1937-1969

Enjoy vintage festive fun with Christmas puds, slap-up feasts, crackers and jokes galore as every Christmas cover from The Dandy and The Beano comics from 1937 to 1969 has been faithfully reproduced.

1,000 copies of this 76 page, full sized, full colour hardback book with dust jacket have been printed. It will be relished by collectors, enthusiasts, nostalgia seekers and all those who recall their weekly comic treat… and with Christmas fast approaching, why not sort out a present or two early!

We are offering our Facebook customers the chance to pre-order their copy – the book will be available from Monday 4th November so visit our website below and buy now to secure your order!"

The book will cost  £20 + postage and can be delivered anywhere in the world. But remember - the print run is limited to just 1000 copies, so be sure to get your copy quick!

Sorry I've only just seen the comment.

No I haven't got them. I doubt they'll be on sale here in New Zealand (going by past experience) so I'm going to wait until both of them are on the D.C Thomson shop or if not then try and get them off ebay.
