  1. I'm interested in possibly buying, or trading for the cover to Marvel Transformers #64. For trade, I have some G1 toy box art from Action Masters, Micro Masters, and G2 Autobot cars, Skyscorchers, and more. I would also consider involving Marvel Transformers interior panel and splash pages I own. If you own this cover, please PM for trade details. Thanks!
  2. Did anyone here notice the Norem Rampaging Hulk #9 cover that was posted on eBay by nicktiiempo005? First sale: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Earl-Norem-painting-framed-AVENGERS-/192643751904?nordt=true&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137 Second sale (best offer of $2500) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Earl-Norem-painting-framed-AVENGERS-/192643751904?nordt=true&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137 Everything about this seller seems suspicious to me, but I'm not sure if he's just an amateur at selling art or actually doing something underhanded. The blue-text caveat in lieu of provenance or some attempt to prove authenticity sure seems as if it could be an attempted Get out of Jail Free card for knowingly selling non-original works. Many past listings have a strange sale-relisting behavior. Prices seem to good to be true; I don't have experience with Picassos, but that apparent original sure seems like a screaming deal for $2750. The Hulk cover also seems it's a bargain considering recent auctions such as, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Earl-Norem-Roboto-Original-Art-From-He-Man-And-The-Masters-Of-The-Universe-/332748965244?hash=item4d7962457c%3Ag%3AqdMAAOSwH~ZbVQAc&nma=true&si=u5f0g5cn1hFXreYJfohaQQS%2FD%2FY%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Also does anyone know if Norem ever did art on canvas, as the seller claims? I only know of his finals being done on art board, regardless of gouache or oil. Thoughts?
