When amateur sculptor Andrew Vickers found a pile of old comics in a rubbish container, he threw them into the back of his van, thinking he might read them later. 1. _____ One day, when he was driving to Sheffield, he saw an advertisement for an amateur sculpture competition and decided to take part in it. 2. _____ But when he looked in his van, he realized he could use the comics to make his sculpture. The result was a papier-mâché artwork, which he called Paperboy. It presented a young man running.
One of the visitors at the exhibition of the winning sculptures was Steve Eyre, the owner of a second-hand comic shop. The sculpture which drew his attention was Paperboy. 3. _____ On the sculpture’s left leg he saw the cover of the first issue of the Avengers, published in 1963. He knew this comic book was worth at least £10,000. Then he noticed six more comics that together would have been worth about £20,000!
