I'd love to start reading Quick & Flupke books, but I would love more to get Jo, Zette & Jocko.

Indeed, if you haven't read the Jo, Zette, and Jocko books yet, you should probably read them before Q&F.

Don't get into that guys trap. He is selling it from India, same location as mine... where it costs a mere 199 rs. per copy, direct from the publisher. At current conversion rate... that roughly comes upto US $5 each... so the total could not be more than 55$, opposed to the starting bid price of $99.

Wonder, how people want to earn money even with one's passion.

I followed your advice. I ordered 3 of them: The Will of Mr. Pump; The Valley of The Cobras and the one in New York. As soon as I get (and read) them, I'll tell you what I think of them. Then, I'll order a few books of Quick and Flupke.

You can buy these directly from the Indian publisher online here.

Moderator Note: Thanks for the information! There was an extra space in the URL which stopped it working, but it is fixed now.
Just a reminder to everyone that the books should start coming out in the UK from Egmont this year. See this thread for details.

Borschtisov:
And according to the seller the translators are none other than the original translators of Tintin: Leslie-Lonsdale Cooper and Michael Turner!

I just noticed this comment. The books do not have any translation credits printed in them.
