  1. I reached to him when that issue came out, and [edit] he said doing Batman was the reason he had gotten into comics in the first place [edit] and he didn't want to consider selling. The excitement was just too much and separating from the work too soon was not in the cards. Looks like I should have reached out a little later, as it seems he changed his mind! They are all tremendous. Many kudos on keeping the issue together...every page is wonderful. Bob
  2. One of the three DPS in the Detective #27 story by Scott Snyder/Sean Murphy, showing different incarnations of Batman in Gotham.
  3. Tom Mandrake. Spectre #51. Joker's conscience gets reconnected after taking over Spectre's form...the Jason Todd in the crowd is heartbreaking.
  4. Great podcast. The “I paid more than I was comfortable and had a panic attack” and the other guys effectively says “hold my beer”...classic OA collector stories. Loved it.
  5. Success! Locke & Key: Head Games #3 cover in hand! And if anyone has any more Locke & Key covers by Gabe Rodriguez tucked away, let me know for a healthy cash offer! https://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=1603750 Bob
  6. DM sent. And I guess I should specify Locke & Key art by Gabe Rodriguez.
  7. Imagine Santa asks, "This year, you been a good socially-adjusted man-child who still reads comic books...what OA would you want for Christmas?" So here's that list!!! 1) Still on the hunt for Y:The Last Man interior pages (from the first 12 issues only). 2) Any interiors or covers from Locke & Key. If you have any L&K art by Gabe Rodriguez, don't hesitate to reach out and receive a very healthy offer! 3) Also: Looking for any pages from Detective #526 or Batman #366, both of which are Newton/Alcala on pencils/inks. 4) Also, also: Jerry Bingham pages from Batman: Son of the Demon 5) Needle in haystack: Looking for the six covers from IDW's Wild Blue Yonder, by Zach Howard. Bought directly from the artist, and poof, just like Keyser Soze, they're gone. Happy holidays! Bob
  8. Was hoping for a similar result on the Hush DPS, but alas, someone took it one increment higher than my absentee bid. The vig + sales tax was suffucating, even after sidestepping the 8% iCollector charge.
  9. I bought three Y:TLM pages from Cadence two months ago. From my payment date to getting the art, it was two weeks max. Smooth and with no drama. That being said, I think they had the art in hand and ready to ship. Sorry to hear of the multiple stories of delays and buyers getting ghosted, but I had a completely different experience. Bob
  10. Last one for me. Brave and Bold #199 (1983). Clearly the doubling up on leg days have done wonders for Spectre...
  11. Prefacing this with "yes, I know these are covers and not interior double-page splashes". But since there hasn't ever been a topic for interlocking covers, and since these are SO cool, I'll quietly drop in these four covers done by Jerry Bingham for the Millenium cross-over in 1989. Kind of like a QCS instead of DPS...
  12. Yep, its the old Hindsight Trading 20/20 phenomenon. Of course he would never have sold those covers for hundreds in the 70's since they would eventually be worth hundreds of thousands each, and only he would be the one to figure that out. My read is that its a case of very sour grapes, but that bitterness is fueled by the work-for-hire ambiguity.
