  1. At 71 ,I think I might be the oldest member on this thread .When I was your age I told myself that when I hit 65 I would start an exit plan but here I am 6 years later with just about the same number of artworks that I had at 50 . Why ? Because as I got older I found fewer and fewer things that interested me or got me as excited.I love comics but today's comics seems to be a wasteland .Loved music but many of the musicians and bands that I liked have either broken up or died and nobody sells CDs anymore (I have yet to learn how to download music.).Books ? Try and find a good book store . Dinin

  3. I’m getting near the end of my de-accessing of my library and as I get near the end the books get better and better because these are the ones that I really don’t want to part with.I call this the “Artists that Draw Beautiful Women “ library because beyond being great story tellers these artists,as the name indicates, were great with the female figure and featured them prominently in their work.The Heck, Schultz,and Cho books are hard cover and all are in great shape. “ Don Flowers”(6’’x 8’’ SC 292 pgs, B+W ) His syndicated “Glamour Girls” strip ran nationally and his elegant line typifie

  6. I loved those Marvel essentials,so much so that I accumulated more than a few of them over the years . It never bothered me that they were black and white as I always felt that the lack of color helped me to better appreciate the drawing skills of the artist. As I continue to de-access my collection I’m allowing these beauties to move on to appreciative collectors .Hundreds of stories by all the great artists .What better way to relive the silver age of comics.All are in at least VG shape ,(most better) . Offered are : The Essential Wolverine#1(issues 1-23) The Essential Antman #1((issu

  11. The great Gene Colan will always be identified with Iron Man .From his work on the character in Tales of Suspense and also as the artist for the early Iron Man comic (including #1 cover) he is the artist that most silver age comic fans identify with the character.Can't drop $8000-$10000 for a silver age large art page ,if you can find one? How about a Colan pencils and inks page(10"x15" image ) for under $400 . Check out this action filled page from Iron Man #253 as our hero arrives in the last two panels to save the day and consider adding it to your collection $395 + $20 Shipping
