  1. I can let others address the word balloon questions (personally, I'm not a fan of the glue residue, but sometimes it is nice to see the artwork hidden underneath them), but the inking definitely looks like Pablo Marcos. But, his daughter, Judith is listed in the credits, and she did pencil a few pinups for Savage Sword of Conan a few years earlier, so I wouldn't think there is enough evidence to change that credit. It would make sense for him to be selling his daughter's artwork. Silvestri is the credited penciler.
  2. I've added some new pages this week. It's just a fraction of what Jim has available, but they are representative of the different titles he still has, as well as the prices. I'll be adding more pages over time, but contact me directly, either here or via CAF, if you have any questions or want to see additional pages. https://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=191605 Jason
  3. Just a few left. I’ll send you a PM. BTW, to everyone, all the 3-D Man pages have been sold now, but I’ll be adding some new pages to the CAF folder next week.
  4. Hello everyone! I've started selling some pages for Jim Craig, a Canadian artist who worked on several Marvel titles in the 1970s, as well as some in the mid-90s. First up are some pages from Marvel Premiere 35, the first appearance of 3-D Man. You can see what's available in my CAF gallery: https://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=191605 Prices are listed in the CAF postings. Let me know if you have any questions. More artwork to come! Jason
  5. New pages for the British reprints were produced by Marvel's British Department in New York, between 1973-1979, before they moved operations to London (and became known as Marvel UK). In addition to the new covers and splash pages mentioned above, they produced new pinups/centrespreads, for use in their landscape format comics (which these are both examples of). In total, about 2,300 new pieces of artwork came out of the British Department. It is where you will find the first published work of John Romita Jr, Marshall Rogers, Mike Nasser, Bob Budiansky, and many others (including Steve Stiles :)). I spent a few years working on a project to catalogue and identify the artists for these pages. If anybody has any British pages they want help identifying, send me a PM, I might be able to help! Jason
  6. I can confirm both these centerspreads were published in the UK. You can see both of them via tlatner’s link to Andy’s site. I didn’t know the identity of the artist to the FF one until now, so it’s great to finally find out (after 40 years)!
  7. Have finished uploading all the pages to CAF! GI Joe is sold out. Still a couple of pages with Batman available. Jason
  8. Hi Terry- All she has from that story is a stat copy of the cover, but not the original art. Jason
  9. Seems he’s deleted my comment as well now, but to be fair, he has changed the artist attribution to Espo as inker. Maybe he’ll know more once he gets the art in hand, or maybe not.
  10. I come across misidentified artwork on auction sites on occasion, but was wondering what others thought about it. Usually one finds artists misidentified, but in this recent case both the issue and the inker are wrong. It sold surprisingly high on Heritage yesterday. https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/marshall-rogers-and-al-williamson-marvel-comics-presents-81-daredevil-story-page-3-original-art-marvel-1991-/a/121842-13161.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515 This page is not from MCP 81, but rather from an unpublished Rogers MCP Daredevil story, partially inked by him most likely. Several of the pages from this story have been previously for sale on a few dealer sites, including this page. I let Heritage know about the identity of the page, but they chose to ignore the information. There was another example at a recent Comicconnect (or Comiclink?) auction which had the wrong artists/volume number of a few Ka-Zar pages, credited to Larry Hama instead of Brent Anderson. In the Heritage example, having it being a published work and inked by someone like Williamson, likely helped up its final sale. It bothers me on a few different levels, but is this a concern to anyone else? Does this happen more often than I notice? Is it done on purpose? Jason
  11. Just in case anyone is in the area, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore is currently holding an exhibition of the late Billy Graham’s artwork until October 25th. It’s mostly artwork loaned out by the family, but also some nice pages from collectors. Entrance is free! Here are some links with more information: http://www.moselygallery.com/billy-graham.html https://www.umes.edu/PR/News-Articles/2018/Mosley-exhibit--No-Longer--The-Irreverent-One-/ Jason
  12. I'm wondering if this could be Adam Kubert pencils (layout looks like his work circa 1998-2004), though still no idea where it would have been published. I've attached a better picture.
