Source for old British comics?

Does anyone know a good website to browse and buy old 'Pocket size' British comics from the 60s and early 70s? These were series like True Life Library, Pocket Chiller Library and so on, dealing with various subjects like war, horror, espionage (eg Nick Bailey, the British agent with the eye patch) and so on.

I used to have a large collection of those but rather unwisely sold them before moving to the UK in 1985. Now that I am retiring, I want to build up my comic-collection hobby again.

This seems to be a list of dealers who sell British comics, rather than just DC/Marvel.

Up to you to check how current links are.

Pocket Chiller Library is described as "highly collectible" but unclear what that means price wise.
