  1. Hi All, When was the last time you saw a Kirby “New Gods” full page splash page offered for sale? That’s right,you haven’t! I’m offering up that and a beautifully detailed Kirby Black Panther page plus a “Fourth World “ Mr. Miracle page (with Barda ) on tonight’s Comiclink Featured Auction so check them out. ALL AT NO RESERVE ! https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/allsub.asp?Focused=1&id=1398&Artist=JACK KIRBY
  2. The site looks great. Very easy to use.........Will you be running one of your occasional sales to coincide with the new site? (I've got my eye on something)
  3. Thanks for your response...You are right about artists being able to draw hands (maybe he didn't feel like drawing hands that day).. It seems that the jury is still out on this so I think I'll let it pass. Thanks to All!
  4. When ever I've made a trade ,I try to choose something from the dealer that I already think is being offered at a good price (a bargain). That way if I give up a little too much on my end at least I feel I made up for it by getting a page that was under valued also.
  5. Hi All, I'm usually very cautious about sketches but this one caught my eye on ebay. What do you folks think? It looks like Big Johns scribble technique but I'm a little suspicious about the character on the lower left and the fact that it is not on art board. What do you think?(Here's the listing:) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hulk-Sabertooth-Hand-Sketch-Signed-art-by-John-Buscema-RIP-Pencils-8-5X11/264444017854?hash=item3d92177cbe:g:xogAA
  6. Anthony Snyder is a short ride over the Bridge in NJ .(Uber $20) He has tons of stuff.
  7. Is there a list of dealers that will be there posted any where?
  8. Checking their sites I see that Albert Moy, Bechara and Anthony Snyder are attending .That's good enough for me. ......I'm there! (but I still would like to know what other dealers will be setting up)
  9. The NJ Comic Art Con is 4 days away and there doesn't seem to be much of a buzz. Is anybody going ? Has anybody seen a list of dealers?
  10. I saw the exhibition when it came to the NY area and have the book .These are all good artists but I'm not so sure about Art Spiegelman, Gary Panter, Chris Ware who seem to be the darlings of the "I don't read comics but I find these artists interesting" pseudo intellectual gang.Don't get me wrong ,Maus was a classic and probably reserves Spiegelman's spot,but Chris Ware, whose work I love, just hasn't produced enough work and Panter who works in a variety of genres (loved his Pee-Wee playhouse designs) would be a definite no. His comic art drawing skills are minimal and strikes me as a low budget Crumb.
  11. Listening to to commentary from members it seems that there are a number of issues with Spencer's site which I have also experienced first hand . I have heard that he is a great, honest, guy and I'm sure he is but the truth is that his site IS a mess with broken links ,many pages with out images and a huge number of pages that are not available. This is not a "extraordinarily professional" approach and the attitude that is projected that he is very busy and that his time is so much more important than yours is not helping. Having said that ,you can get some really great buys of comtemporary artwork if you want to put up with all of this . My suggestion: Catch him at a convention when he usually comes with his available stock ,
  12. "Since the recent events"? I'm sorry ,I've been out of the loop for a few month's can some one bring me up to date? Is the Kirby family going after the art again?
  13. I picked up this FF Kirby/Sinnott large art at $4000 and I think I got a great deal. True no main characters ,but lots of action ,detail and Kirby machinery from a prime period. I had been considering a similar page from that book from a dealer that had it listed at $8500.I had a couple of kirby pages listed with reserve (for what I paid three years ago) that didn't sell. Is it just me or is the middle range Kirby market finally going down ?
  14. Dillin reminds me of Mike Sekowsky. At the time,when drawing JLA, both received a lot of criticism but later ,partially due to nostalgia,became more popular. Both were definite pros
  15. The Society of Illustrators on 63rd St. in NYC (https://www.societyillustrators.org ) has three great exhibitions currently on display and they will be up during the New York Comic Con next weekend so if you are in NY take a look. The main attraction is the "Art of the Avengers "which features original art from just about everybody who ever drew a Marvel comic .( Great covers and splashes).Also on view is "Tales from the Crypt" which features all the great EC Artists like Wood, Jack Davis etc. (again more great covers and splashes). "Funny Ladies of the New Yorker " is as the title suggests female cartoonists from that magazine. (very funny).With this great art toss in a historic building , great dining room and bar and you won't be disappointed . Here's some pics: That Colan page is not in the show ,snuck in there by accident /can't figure out how to delete it !
