  1. the last of my Yu pages. It took me a bit to do this one because i hate stitching DPS's together. But worth it! an all out action page from Axis, with Spidey and the X-Men going at it, with Mags watching on.
  2. Since I'm on the boards, I'll just answer you It's an aggressive price for sure, heritage was a horrible place to list the art and didn't even mention rifts in the title. Lesser covers were already selling private for 50% more than the hammer on this cover. Plus, over the last few years just about every rifts cover has been snapped up by several collectors and they are impossible to find. The only ones you'll see on caf are John zeleznik's old listings that are gone as far as I know. It might also be the best rifts cover offered for sale in the next 5 years, most are i
  3. Slowly making time to scan my latest purchases. this is one of those spreads that I was just blown away by. Most of the major MU villains in an insane DPS! I usually don't buy pages when the inks and pencils are on separate boards & can't buy them both at the same time, but this is one example where I think i made the right decision to break my own rule! Pencils: Leinil Francis Yu Blueline Inks: Gerry Alanguilan
  4. Really happy to add this one to my collection. I have really enjoyed Hickman's reinvention of the X-Men so far, and wanted to get some good pages from the run. It took a long time to iron out a deal, but dang! It was worth it. X-Men issue 2, page 20 - by Leinil Francis Yu (digital pencils), inks by the late/great Gerry Alanguilan (Ink over blue-line)
  5. This was one I was waiting a little while for. It is the 1st published image of Ragged Robin from the Invisibles. This pinup was used in a bunch of the promotional stuff at the comic's launch, including the main poster and the centerfold for the preview comic. I also love that Jill Thompson drew it, since she was the model for the character's design.
  6. Exactly this, I think anyone who's been in this hobby a while has deals that take months to years to do. But they have some communication. A simple, "we're waiting on the artist and it will be in the mail about 2-3 weeks after we get it" would have put me at ease. That's 30 seconds of work that would earn a return customer. I also want to add that they put a dummy tracking number into PayPal after I paid. I had no idea if it was real and my package was in USPS limbo or not, which only added to my consternation.
  7. So, no email responses, but a package did arrive, and it had the correct art in it! Very happy with the art, not so much with the communication from the rep.
  8. This movie cleared out the room faster than a stinky fart. I was the last one standing to finish the movie. It's not even horrible, it was just... meh.
  9. Let's see how this plays out now. Email'd them around 12/1 about some art, they sent me an invoice on 12/7, paid about 15 minutes later. Radio silence since then. But they've been kind enough to send me 3 other emails about their sales and "art drops". So they are active, just not responding to me. I've sent a couple of follow ups and have had 0 response.

  12. Man, I was loving discovery, but they have lost me, I think I'm punching out for now, maybe I'll get cbs all access again before the next season and finish it up, but I felt like after episode 1 and a strong world they built, very little had actually been done with it.
  13. I'm just glad to see the rock finally hitting the gym. If he gets any bigger he's going to look like something out of a cronenburg movie.
  14. So much for it expanding on and answering the questions from the UK show.
  15. I swapped out all the lights in any room I have my art in to LED as quick as I could, everything I've read says that any bulbs that are not made to emit UV don't really output any UV at all, vs Incandescent and CFL which can output considerable amounts: I also found pure white is a bit harsh on the eyes, so i go for a more natural output in the rooms i spend a lot of time in.
