  1. I can't speak for anyone other than myself, but I don't buy it. I suppose if there isn't a replacement auction with the 'correct' Sienkiewicz painting for sale, then we'll have an answer of sorts. The auction house should have gone for the reward. (Maybe they still are, behind the scenes)
  2. The page is clear now, with no pic. Either the auction date has passed, or the house has taken down the offering. I wonder if we'll hear what happened. I hope so. Andrew
  3. Hello all: I know I have posted about this page, even recently, but I'm changing the REWARD OFFER for the rest of this year, so it seemed worthy to post again. I am still casting about, looking for - PAGE 6 - from the Image Comics version of - MICRONAUTS, issue 11 -, published 2003. It is the LAST page I need to complete the interiors. I have been looking for it for over a decade. The artists were STEVE KURTH (penciller) and BARBARA SCHULZ (inker) DETAILS on possible location / History: - Neither artist has any particular recollection of the page's disposition. - This suggests to me that the page was sold or donated early on, 2004-2005 or so. - Both artists are based in the Midwest, so the major cities to which they may have traveled in that timeframe would mostly likely include Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Des Moines, Minneapolis/StPaul. Or thereabouts. But so much time has passed, the page could conceivably be anywhere. - Other members of the 2003 Production Team have been canvassed, and they do not have the page. - When sold in 2004/2005, this page would have likely been well under $100. DETAILS about my REWARD OFFERS: (Yes, I said 'offers' in the plural) - I have maintained an offer of ONE THOUSAND frakking DOLLARS for this minor page. It still stands. I have two further offers that I will make available until the END OF 2020 ONLY. - $500 Finder's Fee to anyone who can direct me to the holder of said page. - IN ADDITION, a further $1,000 will be DONATED to the local Food Shelf of choice of said Finder. If the owner simply comes forward, all three offers will accrue together. Until the end of 2020 ONLY. So, anybody know any closeted MICRONAUTS collectors? (I KNOW there are some out there!) It might do a bit of good to touch base with them and ask them to go through their stuff. Or encourage them to contact me directly. I'm just trying to get this particular monkey off my back. Some have suggested to me that the page may actually have been lost or destroyed. Holding out hope still that this is not the case. An image of the page in question can be viewed above Andrew

  5. I have had that option floated to me, and it personally is not of interest. Others clearly have no problem with it. #setinmyways
  6. To me, the critical point is if the piece is published. If it's unpublished, considering the digital as a prelim seems acceptable to me. If the digital version is a published version, then any traditional version created afterward can only be considered a recreation. My
  7. Micronauts 11 pg 06 (IMAGE 2003) LAST PAGE NEEDED!! $1,000 PAID!!!
  8. ...just don't want to antagonize the UN-kind souls. (Or try the patience of the kind ones.)
  9. Have done so, but here they are again - MICRONAUTS 11 (IMAGE 2003) The only two things to get are the one interior page, and the cover. (I know who has the cover, and have always thought it better form to not hassle him over it until I've got the rest of the issue.) I even found the artwork for the Back Cover, dropped into Anthony's back pocket out of the blue one day.
  10. I plan to do so, but hope to avoid being a pest over it.
  11. Hello all - Another of my periodic reminders that I'm on the lookout for ONE SINGLE PAGE to complete the interiors of a 2003 (Image Comics) issue of MICRONAUTS. Issue 11, page 6. I've checked with both artists, the writer, the editors to see if they might retain this lone holdout, and no joy. So, (assuming it still exists) a collector likely has it stashed in a pile somewhere. Both artists are based in the Midwest, so it's mildly likely to be in that area; but they have travelled to NY and SDCC during the intervening years, so this pesky holdout could conceivably be anywhere. Neither has any recollection of where it may have gone off to. Perhaps it was donated to a Charity Art Auction? Pages from this era of MICRONAUTS are not in particularly high demand right now, but I'm still offering a GRAND for this page, which would have likely only set you back $50 or so back in the day. Everyone's stuck at home, why not do me a favor and dig around if there's any shot you've got it in a pile somewhere...? SOMEBODY knows where this Bad Boy is... Andrew
  12. This page was thrown in with a bunch of others, so I don't know much about it. Previously purchased directly from Chris Batista. CB doesn't recall which book it is from. On DC paper, the only other markings are 'page 6' at the top. I wonder if it's unpublished, but I don't really think it's inked by Chris. Any leads appreciated.
  13. The lesson was a slideshow lecture 30 years ago, so my recollection of specifics is dim. A quick Google glance doesn't help much. I'll have to keep my eyes open.
