So 2018 was an AMAZING year for me in both comics and art! I met so many great people, built lot's of great friendships and traveled around to many cons. It's very hard to choose just 3 pickups, so here's 1 big book and 2 extremely unique pieces of art.
#1 Captain America Comics 1 CGC 1.0 blue complete (My dream book )
#2 First EVER sketch/incarnation of Carnage by Mark Bagley (Check out what he wrote about it on the back, the first name they came up with was Chaos). This piece is very special, and I'm just humbled to own such an important piece of comic book history. This is the first time Carnage was put down on paper. The owner really did not want to give it up but he did buy the biggest book in the hobby (Action 1) so he needed the funds, crazy what it took for him to let it go. He said it was easier for him to sell his Cap 1, Bats 1 and Supes 1 than it was selling this piece.
#3 Original Publsihed Schomburg Preliminary Cover with great action! I love this cover Alex was comissioned to do, it has a cool Cap-like figure, same thing with the shadow and angel, and of course a bombshell Wouldn't be reminiscent of the golden age without those elements!
