  1. Assuming French is the original language for the art --and now you mention it, the text does seem to be lettered directly on the board.
  2. How cheap are OA collectors?

    Has anybody else left obnoxious (because they were true) comments on non-premium member's pages knowing they will have to delete the whole listing to get rid of the comment, or am I the only one?
  3. Huh. Is that even a US Spidey page? Kinda looks like a South American version or something.
  4. COMICLINK CONCERNS

    Yes, and even different stat papers and/or stat adhesives. I had a Marvel page from the late seventies on which the stats were violently turning the paper brown, while on many others the stats are still white and having no apparent effect.

    I will venture a proposition, based on what I have finally gleaned from the Melvillean detail provided. See who agrees on this: masking tape on the back of a page, due to it's destructive acidity and difficult removal, is a significant condition issue which may not always have been disclosed in the past, but ought to be. Fair?

    Raw Sewage, now even more user friendly!

    Please tell me the thread's not dying...
  8. COMICLINK CONCERNS

    I believe the latter group to be very small in number, but willing to go into a lot of detail about it.

    So you're saying that back scans are typically supplied only when there is something interesting on the back, right?
  10. COMICLINK CONCERNS

    As I read the already legendary 7000 word opus, M2 does not take issue with the clear tape on the front, but with the undisclosed masking tape on the back. Masking tape is different from clear tape. It's beige (always in those days) and paper based, and in my experience much more discoloring and harder to remove, especially when it's forty-plus years old.

    Man, without color, Conan's prodigious endowment, I mean extra leg, really pops. I know you wouldn't want to change Barry's lines, but damn, I know he can draw drapery that doesn't look like muscle...

    Thanks for pointing this out, Scott, I did not know. I don't follow the BWS market enough to have an opinion on the valuation of these, but, without having seen the original, I would put the published version much, much higher. None of this is to say that the OP didn't get reamed by the late catalog publication! I'd be hella pissed off too.

    That sounds pretty bad, but for what it's worth, speaking for myself as a buyer, the catalogs are mainly souvenirs. I am 100% aware of all C-Link, HA, and ComicConnect auctions involving OA, way before I get the catalog, and it seems like most of the usual suspects are too. Did other pages in that poorly-promoted auction sell at bargain basement prices?
