  2. Thanks - nope this one was inked by Jim. Page is sold/on hold - thanks for looking everyone.
  3. This is the quintessential Jim Lee page - Batman vs Joker from Batman Europa (Issue 1, page 3). This was the page used in many of the promotional materials as it shows the two face to face and sets up the story. It kills me to have to post this here, but my wife and I are having kid #2 in just a few weeks and need the funds. Let me know if you have any questions. $SOLD
  4. As the title says - this beauty is the first appearance of Batgirl in the New52 - Batgirl 1, page 3. Selling this page to pay for a comic I recently purchased. Pencils: Ardian Syaf Inks: Vicente Cifuentes $550
  5. Just use Conroy - most of it would be voiceover anyway and he is THE voice of Batman. I would love to see that and he has the look
  6. Yeah the artist edition is amazing. I also had Peter Steigerwald do some hand coloring in mine:
  7. I searched for a long time and have two pieces by him - one, a great Supergirl head sketch, and the other a page from an all time favorite story - Superman/Batman: Supergirl
  8. DC Fans: "PLEASE fix the DCEU - make it brighter, give us more Wonder Woman and a hopeful Superman again..." DC: "Here's our darkest, most twisted character - twice. By two different actors...shhhhhhhhhh...just like it"
  9. Really hoping all the changes over the last 6 months will get the DC movies on the right track. I've enjoyed them despite their obvious lack of perfection, but would be great to see some really consistently great films from them.
  10. I was surprised at how low the Superman 204 cover went. I thought that'd clear $50k as it's probably the most recognized Superman cover in the last 20 years maybe even 30 with the exception of the Death of Superman book.
  11. Interesting. The blue line looks very "Jim's Batman" style to me and pretty tight to his final ink. Unless Camuncoli was intentionally trying to emulate that, I always assumed that was Jim's work and since it was blue line further assumed it was digital - I hadn't considered it could still be hand done? Not trying to hijack if this is too far from topic - these feel like the relevant type of questions someone like me might be curious about (though, obviously, not having confirmation on them didn't dissuade me one bit from buying the page)
  12. Similar to what others have said, I think I'm most interested in being able to capture the word "original" when I buy art. If there's a chance a copy could exist out there (or could be made in the future), that lowers desirability for me. That said, the process you've proposed lends itself to that only insofar as you'd ever choose to use the same structure to cry and re-draw the same (or very similar) piece - so it wouldn't be much of a factor for me. Especially if it's all 1 artist, I think I'd still be 99% concerned with final product as opposed to the digital prelim process. That said, the 1% would appreciate something executed all by hand and the skill/time investment I know is required for a great piece. I think one other factor would be considering what is standard for an artist - for some artists that is the only version of an original (like Fabok's ink over blue lines being standard for almost anything published that wasn't 100% digital). If it's the norm for that artist, and was the process for their best stuff, I think that lessens concerns. But, for example, I have an original from Jim's Batman Europa issue and I'm pretty sure Jim's process for that was similar to what you're describing (his water color/ink over his own blue line). I love my page, though there is an asterisk in a way knowing that's not his standard process (or the one he uses for his most well known work) so it could be perceived as being less "authentic" in that sense. I'm a fairly young collector I think - been doing it only about 7 or 8 years, currently in my mid 30's.
  13. Well, Batman 608 2nd printing is Jim without Scott so.... Scott is a master (and gentleman if you ever get to meet him) no doubt, but let's not be hasty with our declarations haha As to the commission prices - Jim talked at length about it on his stream. It's his way of limiting the volume based on market pricing. He doesn't have (or want to make) time for a long commission list and has several avenues for obtaining his art in other ways (gives away more than a sketch a week, silent auction couple times a month, not to mention all his published stuff available through Albert). It makes sense to me that he can offer a premium option like this to someone who highly values having a custom original of just what they're thinking. With all the demand (in person at shows and online) for a sketch from him, I think he works really hard at finding creative ways to give people a chance to own one of his originals across the range of economic means - and without just drawing 24/7 for every person who asks (or would even be willing to pay several hundred dollars).
