    Nice pieces. Good stuff everyone.

    Best of 2018 is coming next month

    To clarify, is this exclusive to pieces we've acquired in 2018?

    Posting on CAF too soon

    I don’t think the comment had malicious intent. I also don’t think a comment should affect how you use CAF or appreciate your art. To answer your question, if from an auction house, right away as you did it is fine, to me. If a transaction with someone else, once in hand is probably best. I’ve had multiple people back out on pieces I’ve paid for in full, have signed up for timed payments on, they have committed to buy or even put a deposit on. I find the people in this hobby generally nice, but I’ve also had my fair share of bad apples. Twice this year I’ve sold pieces to cover new ones CAFers have promised to me, only for them to change their mind despite their promises and guarantees. Not the best!
  4. CAF FS gallery available here: https://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=174104 — GONE - Batman: HUSH / Huntress, Batman / Issue 609, Page 9 by Jim Lee & Scott Williams — Jason Fabok - Detective Comics #13 Cover (Batman, Penguin, 1st Appearance Emperor Blackgate) $2750 USD + Shipping. Timed payments spanning a few months available. 11x17 pencil and ink on two boards. First appearance of Emperor Blackgate (Ignatius Ogilvy). Jason's first-ever Detective cover. The published cover is the pencils with digital inks; the inks below are commissioned on a separate board by Jonathan Glapion. Jason's covers are typically ~8K nowadays and are ink on digital pencils. This is a rare piece in that it includes Jason's original pencils. Per his commentary, I expect his prices to go up further with the release of Three Jokers. — Batman Vs. Superman (Flash #50 Variant Cover) by Duncan Fegredo $2000 USD + Shipping. Timed payments spanning a few months available. 11x17" inkwash; spectacular in person. Published as Flash #50 Variant cover. — Ryan Ottley - Invincible #144 Cover - FINAL ISSUE $4250 USD + Shipping. Timed payments spanning a few months available. 11x17" Being turned into a TV series. Primary cover to FINAL issue.

    2019 Collecting Goals Thread

    I’ve already hit two of my 2019 goals, and will take delivery of those in 2019. The first is a series of covers while the other is a piece from my favourite artist. The remaining goal would be a Curse of the White Knight cover, I suppose. Outside of acquisitions, trimming the fat.

    How do sellers feel about selling at HA?

    Both eBay and PayPal are riddled with scams which almost always side with the scammer. Yuck. Not a fan of auctions personally. CAF messaging for the win.

    Question about Home Security Cameras

    You guys know museum glass and placement out of [direct] sunlight and you’re good, right? Art isn’t gonna fade to a degree you’ll notice in your lifetime unless it was done in Sharpies. If you’re really cautious you can put a frosted vinyl over your windows to further protect against UVs, but it’s unnecessary in my opinion. Seems there’s a lot of needless paranoia that takes away from enjoying the art. Reminds me of buying comics not to read them, but to store them in a coffin of Mylar, never to see the light of day.

    Question about Home Security Cameras

    I find it best not to look at the art directly in case it bursts into flames.

    November HA OA auction

    Yeah, I’d like to know as well. IMO, his art is reminiscent of an art school student trying to make it. So this is particularly baffling.

    Is anyone here buying into monoprints

    Not original art, a print. In my opinion, a waste of money, but to each his own. Outside of discussions like this, posts about these prints do not belong in this forum or on CAF as it is an entirely different hobby. There’s some people on CAF who post prints, people don’t realize, and they get flooded with comments about what a great piece it is. Lol.

    This is why no one likes the Donnellys

    Wow, congrats! Looks GREAT! Good on for you bringing back the piece to it's original, Donnelly-less state lol! Gem!
