    FACT if I stop posting, trillions and trillions of transistors would be out of work.

  1. No issues, she's very supportive, but relatively speaking, I spend peanuts and focus on keeping it in check. I'd be real surprised if most didn't find the level of pushback proportionate to how well or poorly they manage to keep within their means - or are we really looking for real tales of horror with this thread? Now to just wait for a similar thread asking female collectors if their husbands hate it (I'll be waiting awhile I think).
  2. That's a real bummer, I've been there. I don't even bother with these sales anymore, they always start in the middle of my EST work day and I'm typically in a meeting Grats to the winners, they're damn fast! Good luck to the OP on finding the pages they're after, Tradd does special work.
  3. I still like some of his work, I just really hate how the lifted faces tend to "jump" out of the images.
  4. Tell us how you really feel, don't hold back! For what it's worth, not a big Larsen fan either, but I'm still impressed and feel his longevity, and commitment to, Savage Dragon is an accomplishment. Especially in this day and age where creators are constantly moving on to the next thing at a quicker and quicker pace.
  5. I happen think charging $15k for a commission is a bad look, that's just my opinion, highly subjective and all. I know others share it, and many others don't, it is a topic of discussion but no one can call right or wrong... not objectively. Having said that, I would never dump on people's commissions or experiences. I honestly wouldn't have been surprised to see this thread get moderated after some of the recent comments. I feel this is more in objective territory... don't be a jerk people.
  6. I have to wonder what you even mean by 'sane' here. There certainly must have been something about the environment the Crumbs were raised in.
  7. One of the best documentaries I've ever seen focusing on a living person. He is shown as a fascinating individual - in every sense of the word - even to those that know nothing about the art. Worth everyone's time in my opinion.
  8. I also thought about adding Frank Quietly. His influence will only continue to grow.
  9. Oh, I somehow totally blipped over that! I'll edit it out, thanks for pointing it out.
  10. Art Adams Neal Adams Miller Edit: poor reading skills on my part tonight
  11. I'd probably take this cover over #21, but I'm a Constantine fan. I imagine if all of them are on the table many may opt for #53.
  12. If you go to the trouble of putting a sticker price on an item in an open market place and wildly, wildly whiff on the price you land on I have trouble seeing the whole "shame / taken advantage of" storyline getting too far unless many other details emerge to support it. I certainly have some sympathy, but like I said earlier, I can't fathom the series of events that culminated in this transaction. The most minimal of due diligence should have thrown up some red flags... Not even necessarily OA specific research, just a quick search into the comic it came from would likely have resulted in a different outcome to this story. Here's hoping it wasn't a grandma setting up an OA booth to pay for her dialysis treatments.
  13. It certainly never happens to me! I can't imagine the run of events that led up to that cover going up at that price.
  14. I never say anything regardless as I'd feel odd telling the artist not to do their SOP. Now I have has an artist in artist row *ask* me if I wanted him to sign it and I said 'No!' so quickly he found it funny. Clearly I'd been hurt before!
