  1. Congratulations Dino! I'm not sure if I would have had the patience to wait as long as you for just the right piece. Definitely worth the wait. Cheers! N.
  2. Congratulations Ron, it's not easy getting a complete issue these days. Who doesn't love Sal Buscema?
  3. @gumbydarnit The NY Comic Art Expo is still scheduled for Saturday May 2, 2020. Nick Katradis and I, (Animated Ink), are going to be set up at the show. With Valentine's Day coinciding with the long weekend from President's Day, I would give Zaddick an extra day or so to respond back to you. If you do end up attending the show, please stop by and introduce yourself. It is always great to meet fellow CGC board members in person. All the best. Cheers! N.
  4. You should safely assume that artists generally don't like giving out their private phone numbers out. The last thing they need is a daily phone call from a "fan".
  5. "Fresh to Market" AND "lower prices"? There is a huge difference in talent when comparing Skottie to Chris. For full disclosure, I do own an early Spidey / Swarm publushed cover by Skottie. People should just go with their gut and not worry about who else buys which artists' work. Dave Mandel, (or anyone else), has a wonderful collection but not every piece appeals to everyone. Don't worry about what Dave buys, worry about your own collection. I love Skottie's work on Wizard of Oz but all the covers were snapped up by a single European collector. As far as the panel pages for that mini-series, Quesada cherry picked the best pages and displayed them in his young daughter's room. Now unless you are a fan of SY, who cares what Quesada buys. Buy what you like and what you can afford.
  6. Ankur You must have me confused with someone else as I have never expressed an interest in the 2 McFarlane covers.
  7. The "fresh to market" label certainly did not seem to help the recent sales of 2 McFarlane Spidey covers.
  8. I did not go on Friday but I heard it was well attended. The place was packed on Saturday. Although admission was free, they clearly wanted you to pre-register on I did not and was asked to wait on the standby line. A gentleman that was pre-registered for 6 but only had 4 in his party was nice enough to give the 2 extra tickets to me and another gentleman on the standby line. We were given wrist badges and got in without a problem. Something to think about for next year. The place is small and full of independent comic creators and small vendors. It's a nice show for showcasing independent comc creators. Long time Marvel inker Keith Williams was also there doing commissions. A super nice guy. Hank Kwon from BulletProof Comics in Brooklyn also set up with prints, Funko Pop dolls, pins, etc. I was there for about an hour with my friend Nick before we left for lunch and beat the snow.
  9. The 8th Annual Schomburg Center's Black Comic Book Festival is a 2 day event. Friday January 17 and Saturday January 18, 2020. 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Free admission. See for schedule of events and guests. Schomburg Center 515 Malcolm X Blvd. New York, NY 10037 If you take the NYC subway, the 2 or 3 train goes to 135th Street and Malcom X Blvd. You just walk up 1/2 block to the building.
  10. Don't blame Rob for that hot mess. The pencils were all Jim. But even a great artist can have a bad day. Blame the editors.
  11. Poof! Just like that. Problem resolved.
  12. Going digital helps artists meet their deadlines. However, I'm sure they will still hand drawn splashes and covers to sell for big $. At the very least, hand ink over their digital layouts.
  13. The cover art is a nice looking DPS. However, this may be one of the few times where the back cover looks better than the front. Lol. Of course, the real crime in all of this is the seller trying to sell a used wok for $66. There must be some shill bids in there. Lol.
  14. I would have to buy a warehouse and convert it to a gallery in order to showcase some of those oversized beauties. People think they have problems collecting 11 x 17 art and storing them in itoyas. Lol.
  15. I've noticed the Double Page Splash Thread has "technical issues" for several days now. Is it because someone is linking images from an unauthorized site?
  16. Some nice recommendations. I always enjoy walking through Artist Alley at shows to see who the up and coming new talent is. It's part of the reason I put up with the crowds at NYCC.
  17. Wikipedia's Bio Marvel's Tribute My condolences to all of his family and friends.
  18. Tom Palmer still does shows so it is easy enough to ask him in person.
  19. I always try to recycle or re-use shipping material.
  20. When there are multiple copies, it no longer feels special. Michael Finn's 1 minute later commissions has the right idea where there is a twist while still paying homage to the original.
  21. I have found comic strip art on occasion but never anything super-heroes related. Nothing special.
  22. ML Unfortunately, the shiver you feel down your spine is called an addiction. Your next purchase is your fix. Welcome to the world of collecting comic art. There is no cure. Lol.
