They are insane!! So the currency is rising even though they are going to crash out of the EU?!
We truly live in interesting times.
Maybe I'll be wrong but UK doesn't really produce much of anything and they are an island who will need to import most of their goods...and most of the world is no longer part of the 'empire'.

Would like to go on vacation there again - need the currency to crash a bit


Shipping is a killer from UK to CAD, imagine not much better to the US?

Shipping from the UK isn't too bad. I can get a package tracked and signed from there for about £8-£10. Not bad, considering for me to send a package first class international tracked is like $22 or so. I usually have to order more than a few books to really help justify the cost of ordering from overseas. My only other options for pence books in the US seem to be Mile High (too outrageous on price) and MCS (not enough selection). I did order an Iron Man 100 pence from Reece's Rare Comics and was actually impressed with the book. I'll have to go through their selection. Doug Sulipa could be another option if I can force myself to go through that abomination of a website he has.

Doug's website makes Mile High's look goooooood. I have ordered from Doug and was beyond pleased with their quality and customer service. I definitely would order from them again.

Found them at Orbital comics in London. 30th century comics was a bit of the beaten path so I didnt have the opportunity to go there.

Were they complete with any posters/stickers/inserts? I know the #1 came them, not sure about the 113. I've never had a chance to make it to London (other than flying in there) the two times I've gone to England.

Transformers 1 has the poster attached,it is more of a two page spread. There were no transfers inside the book nor where they applied to the poster, thankfully. Apparently they came loose in the magazine. I have CGC credit so it is going off to be graded. We will see if it gets the green label.
