  1. You are correct. Makes sense not having to whiteout inked art if someone decided to move word balloons/captions around, word balloons/captions became a different size, etc. Mike
  2. I personally knew a guy back in the 1980s Austin used to sell originals to on occasion, and I seriously doubt he was the only one. While it's true Austin hung onto a lot of the art he inked, he did sell some, including some of his best panel pages and at least one X-Men cover. Mike
  3. Annnnnd just now discovered it was auctioned at one time through Heritage. Here's the link to a quality image of the art. https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/bernie-wrightson-and-mike-kaluta-frankenstein-illustration-original-art-circa-1980s-2005-/a/827-43581.s?ic4=GalleryView-Thumbnail-071515 I think I'm finished padding my posting total for now Mike
  4. Found this barely "better than nothing" image online of the Wrightson/Kaluta Frankenstein art. Mike
  5. I'm not Glen, but I believe Kaluta inked a Wrightson pencil version of the Monster going down a cliff with the doctor in the background. Note that the published version in the Frankenstein book of this image is all Wrightson. Mike
  6. it was framed when Henry Huie owned it. Mike
  7. Frazetta The Gauntlet rough also withdrawn. Mike
  8. I can't go into detail at this time, but I am thrilled to report it appears all of the comic books have been recovered, although it will take some time to get a full accounting due to various circumstances. The Strange Tales 154 cover has been recovered as well. The Lone Ranger piece is still missing, but outside of that, the news is about as good as could be hoped for. Mike

  12. Lobbyists for the real estate industry got a carve out. So as a wise man once said, to answer most questions, follow the money. Mike
  13. Sure thing. It's easy to miss details in some of the Heritage descriptions. Personally, I'd be more interested to know if the logo was on an overlay or attached directly on top of some original artwork. if it's directly attached, which I'm guessing is the case, that's a shame, although it may have been done to avoid seeing or cleaning unsightly rubber cement stains. Mike
  14. From the item description: "The Hawkman logo is a modern day replacement." Mike
  15. Bought this years ago without knowing what, if anything, it was used for. Later discovered it was both a Marvelmania Catalog cover and a pin-up in a Marvel Treasury Edition. But the most insane fact about this piece, discovered with the indispensable assistance of Glen Gold, is this is Sal's try-out art that landed him the Avengers gig! I apologize for the poor image...Mike
