  1. That Brainiac piece is some next-level insanity. Jim is absolutely killing it with these ... calling them 'sketches' almost seems to be a disservice to the incredible detail he's putting into these.
  2. That's awesome! Bill is a true gentleman, and so are you for doing these auctions.
  3. Hi folks, I'm working on a video feature on Kirby's Fourth World and I wanted to include a few scans of OA from those books. I'm looking for a couple of nice splashes and/or panel pages from any of the 3 main titles - New Gods, Forever People, Mister Miracle. If any Kirby collectors would like to provide a scan of their art, it would be greatly appreciated. we'll also credit you . DM me if you can assist. Thanks!
  4. 1000% THIS. I'll never understand why some people feel the need to all over someone for their artistic preferences. It's nobody's $ but the buyer's. If he's happy with the commissioned piece -- and every single one who posted a Jim Lee commission in this thread sure seemed thrilled -- why throw a wet blanket on it? SMH
  5. not surprised to hear this. Mike B. has always been incredibly easy to work with on OA deals.
  6. Hi folks, Selling my Gil Kane page 1 splash to Batman #208, "The Women in Batman's Life." Jack Abel inks Great looking splash with full figures of Batman & Robin, just a really nice example of Silver Age Batman OA. Art is in nice shape. Asking $5K OBO. Feel free to PM with questions ... Thanks for looking, Mike
  7. My only Darwyn art -- a Flash/Superman race homage commission he did during the New Frontier days (there's a prelim to a NF page on the back). looking at this just brings a smile to my face.
  8. considering how awesome these three pages are, you have one of the greatest batting averages of any collector in OA history!
  9. I rarely get commissions, but decided to get one from Ron Frenz. I had him recreate a classic John Romita Captain America image, and it turned out GREAT! Ron penciled, inked and colored the piece + added the lettering. It's gorgeous. Fair pricing and incredibly fast turnaround. I also want to tip my cap to Scott Kress from Catskill Comics for a great job of keeping me informed every step of the way. Very glad I ordered this, and will definitely ask for another Frenz piece in the future!
  10. I recall seeing Becharra having a very early Marvel GI Joe cover at his booth at a Con in the past year or so. Believe it was issue #2.
  11. sorry guys, I've let the tech team at SYFY know about it so they can figure out what's keeping it blocked from international viewers.
  12. Thanks! I hadn't thought about the dust issue ... I can tell you it was immaculate. But given how John took great pains to lay out the room a certain way, I'd wager he's not one to slack on keeping the place ultra-tidy
  13. UPDATE: I am told this has now been 'unlocked' and can be viewed in all territories. If there is anyone on here from outside the U.S. please check this when you have a chance.
  14. yeah, I know. Sorry about that! I've asked SYFY to unlock it so its viewable internationally. Hopefully it will happen soon.
  15. Hi folks, I produced/hosted this video feature on John Byrne's studio, which is PACKED with great original comic art and other amazing collectibles. John was very gracious with his time, as usual, and his fandom is apparent. The guy loves comics. Hope you guys enjoy it ...and please excuse my S**t-eating grin on the screen grab -- I was giddy being surrounded by John's absurd collection.
  16. this is SPECTACULAR! what a great score , getting the OA and the stat page. one of the most memorable ROM images ever!
  17. Has the Cockrum cover been restored? I remember seeing it years ago and it seemed to have had more yellowing. Maybe I'm wrong. Also, I think you're dead right on the rankings, Allen.
  18. Hi folks, unloading some art and wanted to let the forum know. I have a sweet page from Dazzler #6 by the two Franks, Springer & McLaughlin, up for auction on eBay. It's the final page in the issue and features a great splashy panel with Dazz & Hulk facing off. Link to Auction HERE. Also, reluctantly parting with my ROM, THE SPACEKNIGHT page from issue #14. This is page 17, by Sal B. and has Rom in several panels, as well as Jack of Hearts. A cool early page from ROM. (image attached) PRICE - $950
  19. spectacular! I always loved that cover -- Jim & Scott hit it out of the park, as usual! Congratulations on a great get
  20. very good idea. I would show more of the products up for auction, and do it earlier. Your audience for the videos is potential bidders, so you want to show them as many of the items they may be interested in as possible. let the conversation/interview serve as the V/O narrative bed. Just my two cents
  21. By the way, has anyone ever seen Norem's original painting for this issue?
  22. Agree. I know a couple of collectors (who also check eBay regularly) that are ready, willing and able to cut a big check for that original. Everything about that seller seems sketchy
