  1. Hi guys, I need a bit of help from the experts; I was happy to buy the original art to this nice Dave Cockrum pinup from THE COLLECTOR #24 fanzine, published in 1971 (in full color !). You can see the published version in 'additional images' (thanks to Ken Meyer Jr.'s 'INK STAINS' blog: https://comicattack.net/2015/06/01/is-72-tc-24/). I'd like some help from Dave Cockrum experts - is this the first Superman or Superboy image he'd published (in a fanzine or elsewhere) ? If not, please let me know when and where was his first (fanzine) Superman published. Many thanks, Gal

Here's my CAF post of it: https://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1538944&GSub=14281 You can see the published version in 'additional images' (thanks to Ken Meyer Jr.'s 'INK STAINS' blog: https://comicattack.net/2015/06/01/is-72-tc-24/).

  3. Moving forward, I'll give some serious thinking to what you have been saying. Thank you.
  4. I did check with a few of the dealers. I posted this topic mainly to find out if anyone seen this art float anywhere. I'm seriously considering offering a "finder's fee", what's the standard (based on similar situations) ?
  5. TBH, I felt uncomfortable to ask for a substitute piece from the family. Also, according to one person related to the estate, they didn't even find any Batman art at his apartment (apart from a few doodles from Norm's childhood). The current whereabouts of the artwork that was in Norm's possession before his passing is a mystery and I was hoping the community would help me solve it. Thanks !
  6. Hi guys, It's been almost two months since my last post and I still don't have any new lead to the current whereabouts of the missing artwork. I'd be most grateful if the community could pass around the story/info so might reach the relevant people. Many thanks, Gal
  7. Thanks, man ! I actually wasn't looking to sell, but to entertain trading.. which I'm still open to, so if you wish to try to work something out, feel free to drop me a line...
  8. Hi guys, I'd love to buy or trade early work by Howard Porter, like Underworld Unleashed pinups/promos, trading card artwork, JLX stuff, etc... Please e-mail me at: galschwart@gmail.com Thanks, Gal
  9. Hi guys, I don't have funds to start 2019 with a new purchase, so I thought to offer one of my better pages to entertain a trade; https://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=1367159 Offered here is the title page to FLASH ANNUAL #5, which marks the 1st or 2nd published work or Travis Charest and probably his best published piece to feature DC characters. Shown here are the origins of both Barry Allen and Wally West, as well as a truly great Flash running image. I'm looking to trade it for great examples of artists mentioned in my CAF want list. Thanks, Gal
  10. Norm approached me in 2016, mentioning this piece, while actually locating and scanning it in 2017, so it was indeed years. Since Norm was already post stroke, I didn't want to be pushy (regarding shipping) as I wasn't sure what physical toll it would require of him. While he offered to ship quickly, I told him to take his time with it. Also, he told me he might have some other items he would be able to locate and possibly offer to me to purchase (he even got to scan a few), so I figured maybe I might buy another one down the line and have both items shipped together at some point . I thought "there's always tomorrow" ...until there wasn't...
  11. The family has acknowledged that the piece was supposed to be sent to me (by Norm) and said they'd send it my way if they ever locate it. I'm thankful for that. Also, Norm himself had stated publicly (on a FB post of his) that he'd sold that piece to me (he approached me and offered it to me to begin with...), I even helped him stitch the scans on Photoshop so we could both post it online (he did on FB and I did on CAF) and of course the purchase is well documented. There's no need to negotiate ownership, I just want it to be known that I'm looking for it and whoever has it at hand should contact me so we could resolve the matter. As for the refund - I paid Norm and not his family, so I don't feel comfortable trying to ask them for a refund, especially if they don't have the art to keep in return. I look at this piece as a memento from Norm as a friend, he approached me with it and I was happy to become its supposed caretaker, I had no plans of reselling it and once I (hopefully) get it, I'm hoping to keep it for the long haul. Thank you for taking the time to address it and I hope I could soon update with a resolution, in the meantime, any further advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Gal
