The ''Illustration'' sale includes original drawings of Mickey Mouse, Alice in Wonderland as well as comic favourites including the Hulk.

In recent years, the market for comic books has sky-rocketed. Interest and prices for comic and illustration heavyweights Disney, Marvel, Tintin and DC have felt a mighty boom in the last 5 years.

If cartoons and comics don't quite leap out of the page for you, a selection of film posters featuring Laurel and Hardy, Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe will also feature.
