I have resisted putting these on eBay, so I thought I should announce them here again.
The Adventures of Roger Wilco comics. These are pretty rare. They hardly ever show up on eBay, and I haven’t often seen them in comic shop back issue bins. That’s because they’re really nice collector’s items and they’re all owned by collectors who don’t want to part with them. I have a limited quantity of each, so the time has come to announce them again.
All issues are in very fine or near mint condition. I will provide a thorough description of the comic I’m actually going to send you if you’re interested in buying. I will also send you photos of the actual comics you will buy as well as a photo of how well I package them up for you. Issues are mailed to you bagged, boarded, and then further protected by heavy cardboard and excellent labelling and packaging. You are responsible for the actual shipping cost from where I live (Canada) to wherever you live.
This three issue, Sierra-licensed series re-tells the story of Space Quest 1. You can read the comics or see what they look like at Frans’ SpaceQuest.net website… but reading them online is nothing like holding them in your hands.
Issue #1 – The real gem of the series. Written and fully hand-painted by John Shaw, an amazing artist who did box art and manual artwork for some Space Quest games and other Sierra games. In the gorgeous style of the Space Piston comic that came with Space Quest 2 (also done by John Shaw). 23 full-colour pages by John Shaw with no advertisements, except on the last page (page 24) and the back inside cover. The back cover has an ad for Space Quest 1. I’m asking $30 USD for this comic. And when you see this incredible comic and what great condition it is in, you’ll know you got a bargain.
Issue #2 & Issue #3 – Black and white. These next two issues just don’t have the magic that issue #1 has. They’re printed on cheaper quality paper (making it harder to find them in good condition) and the artwork and writing is not even close to being as captivating as John Shaw is. Still, they’re definitely collector’s items for the Space Quest fan. $15 USD each.
All three issues for $50 USD ($10 off). Issues #2 & #3 together for $20 ($10 off).
