  4. Probably everyone else thought that too! Ha!
  5. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/12/opinion/mad-magazine-last-issue.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage ive read a few of these articles with no mention of Harvey Kurtzman, from what I’ve read in the past, Kurtz was very involved in the creation of Mad.....thoughts? Insights anyone.....
  6. Great! I used to own one of those! I sold or traded all my Marvel twice ups, so I’ll have to live vicariously through the posters here.
  7. Ha! I bought some of those for driving back in the 80s! I was maybe 19 or 20.......

  10. I watched that, very uninspired bidding, I read somewhere the estimate was around 2 million +
  11. I have not heard the story, I personally think it’s more of a style thing than incompetence as a draftsman.....he isn’t the type of artist as the guys you mentioned, more of a stylist, and if someone is interested in getting close to “realism” Calkins isn’t for them....he’s quirky but his lines are confident enough that I trust what he does. He also creates some real weirdness that complements the strip in many cases. Ive seen quite a few out there over the years, but not a ton....so maybe he did destroy many of them....that would be too bad IMHO id also just throw out that Ditko could be quite odd at times, and that made for a heck of a lot of charm and humanity to his Spider-Man.
  12. Wow, that’s a great early one! Too bad you didn’t land it. Prices on those have really been up and down over the years; I was happy to see the solid result at heritage.
  13. I love those, Calkins has a great style, nice heavy lines......they’ll be others.
