  1. This Schultz piece has been haunting me for years. Schultz
  2. This was from a comic that went wherever I went. Visiting relatives, camping trips, this comic went with me. I'm thrilled to have this page. WWBN
  3. Recently I purchased a page with misplaced word bubbles. In time they must have fallen off and a previous owner did a horrible job gluing them back on. Not only did he miss align them but two were glued to the wrong panels. I had Robert Dennis correct this issue. He sent me a picture of the page with all the panels removed and I saw that in the last panel under two narrative balloons there was a building. After the narrative was added on top of the image the inker just blacked it out what little of the building would have been seen. I guess there just wasn't enough of it showing behind the balloons to make it recognizable to the reader. I love having these little peeks of the artistic process in a page. anyone else find something interesting behind a word balloon?
  4. So some silly person decided to divide the panels of an original Peanuts Sunday strip. HOORAY!!!!! A complete Sunday Peanuts strip sells in the tens of thousands. If you don't happen to have that kind of disposable cash this is your chance at owning a part of the greatest contribution to the American newspaper funnies. The auction ends tonight on Comiclink. Check it out Peanuts
  5. Did he do for you the kind of job I need done?
  6. I just got a piece that needs work. Word balloons were were re-attached and placed wrong with an unknown glue. I've been given one name of an art restorer. Who would you recommend?
  7. Well I know his first name was Mike but that's about it.
  8. Am I to assume you were the original owner?
  9. Click where it says "Willingham" underlined at the end of what I've written.
  10. An early page from the very first appearance of the Elementals in Justice Machine Annual #1 published by Texas Comics in 1983. Take a gander. Willingham
  11. If you're a Steve Mannion fan you'll like this splash page he drew for issue 3 of Galaktikon. What's better than tentacles and a hot chick? Have a look. Mannion
  12. Did the OP give the money back before the art was returned?
  13. I would much rather see the "Batpole" getting publicity then watch one more hero grabbing headlines by getting killed. For years DC and Marvel have tried to get attention by killing off a popular character. I find it painful to hear about another overblown death because you know that in about a year they just come back to life. Seams to me that publicity stunts are the new comic crutch.
  14. This is a lovely work from an artist who I feel best captured the spirit of the original Dave Stevens piece. Gerhard is brilliant. Here is the proof. Gerhard
  15. No. I got it from Albert Moy at SDCC.
  16. If the artist claims that found "stolen art" is his but he had never reported theft to the police how does he have the legal standing to claim ownership? If I have a commission made and I do not receive a receipt can the artist later claim it was stolen and should be returned to him?
  17. I was reading what Unca Ben linked but there was so much info I missed a few things. Was the art that was under "work for higher law" (legally own by the company) ordered to go back to the artists?
  18. Had this for a while but just recently uploaded it. From issue 3 of Love And Rockets. Hernandez
  19. When you read this keep in mind that I didn't read up on any aspect of went on behind the scenes of the comic world. When the great artists of years past (Kirby, Ditko, ect.) spoke of their art being stolen I assumed what happened was that they gave their pieces to the publishers (Marvel, DC, ect,) fully expecting to get it back but never did because someone ran off with it or the companies kept it for themselves. If this is the case then why did the artists continue to work for them for so many years? Was there a contract that stated the art was to belong to the company they worked for or was the contract not clear on the subject? Please fill in the blanks for me.
  20. Turns out my Larry Welz Cherry image was published. See the new info and pics here Welz
  21. I scored two Larrys at this last SDCC. The first is a drawing of Baron Munchausen by Larry Todd seen here Todd. The next is by Larry Welz (graphic sex warning) Welz.
  22. Here is one bright spot to what was a very weak SDCC. For the past few years I've been trying to get Stanley Lau to do an homage piece but it never came to fruition until this SDCC 2018. Have a look. Stanley
