  1. DPS from my favorite UXM period.
  2. Totally different price points, but these two were shocking to me as well: https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/panel-pages/george-perez-and-mike-decarlo-tales-of-the-teen-titans-annual-3-page-16-original-art-dc-comics-/a/121929-15176.s?ic2=mytracked-lotspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyTrackedLots-101116 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/panel-pages/marc-silvestri-and-dan-green-wolverine-50-page-14-original-art-marvel-comics-1992-/a/121929-15200.s?ic2=mytracked-lotspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyTrackedLots-101116 And what's up with prices for the Davis Excalibur pages at the Sunday auctions over the last couple of months? More than 2k for a page form issue 44? Is there a movie in the works? https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/alan-davis-and-mark-farmer-excalibur-44-story-page-20-original-art-marvel-1991-/a/121921-17033.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515
  3. Holy s...! Is 4k the current market rate for pages like this? 1.5k would have been my absolute highest guess... Unbelievable!
  4. Does somebody have the email address of the owner (or the manager) of Huberty & Breyne Gallery in Brussels? Many thanks!
  5. Just got charged sales tax by Comiclink for the first time. I’m in CA, does this mean they opened an office here or was there a change in tax law?
  6. Does anybody have experience with shipping art between France and the US? I'm buying a framed page from someone in Paris and wanted to make sure that we're using the best provider possible. The page is fairly expensive so I would also love to be able to insure it up to the full value (around 8k). I had good experiences with DHL from Italy recently (Milan to Los Angeles in two days, I was speechless), but not sure if they are good for France as well. Alternatively I could have the page shipped to Germany, not sure if this would change the answer (if anybody even has one :-)). Thanks so much!
  7. Does anybody have experience with importing comic art from Europe into the US? I bought a page for around USD 3,500 in Sweden and was wondering what I have to expect with regards to costumes fees if the seller declares the full value on the package. On the CBP website I found the following statement: Original works of art (i.e. paintings, drawings, pastels, collages and decorative plaques) with or without their frames are duty-free under Chapter 97 in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS). https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/360/~/importing-personal-and-commercial-original-works-of-art%2C-paintings%2C-drawings%2C This would lead me to believe that a comic art page would be exempt from customs fees, but I wanted to hear your opinions/experiences. I also would appreciate if anybody could let me know how the seller should label/declare the content of the package on the customs form. Is this something like: illustration, comic art, artwork, drawing? Thanks so much!
  8. She-Hulk 6 was also done on large boards. Here are some pics of my pages from She-Hulk 6 and FF 287.
  9. Issue 287 was on large board as well. Inks are by Sinnott so no bleeding here, but also not a lot of Byrne left :-). I have pages 1 and 2, if anybody's interested I can post some pics when I get home.
  10. :-). ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/323590803306?ul_noapp=true Comicartfans: https://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1519440
  11. Does anybody know where the originals of the John Schoenherr Dune paintings are? I just remembered how much I wanted to own one of these extraordinary paintings when I read the Dune novels as a kid. Well, knowing what I know today I’m sure there is no way they would ever be for sale, but I would love to see one in person if they are exhibited somewhere. Does anybody know more about their whereabouts?
