  1. I think this might qualify as a one-pager . . . A single page incorporating two GARTH tryout strips from early in David Lloyd's career (V for Vendetta was years away at this point). Interestingly, David illustrated these at same size of the printed page, not realising that originals were illustrated much larger in size!
  2. Half-page (self-contained) painted strip by Cyril Holloway that featured in the UK's EAGLE comic of the 1950s. Some missing paste-ups of text and photo of the actual DFC Medal used for the opening panel.
  3. Stumbo the Giant one-pager in my collection. Warren Kremer, I think.
  4. It's the Thetan from the OUTER LIMITS episode, 'Architects of Fear'. It's a 'Watchmen' seed story
  5. I don't do guesstimates but think the SSS # 6 is likely to smash previous records for a Woody EC cover. To tie into Lee Benaka's efforts, the # 6 cover originally sold for $2.288 on March 30, 1983 in the Russ Cochran EC art auctions. Pretty strong price for back then. I bought two complete EC stories in the same auction, including one from # 6.
  6. Totally agree with you on your No. 2 peeve. Instant turn-off for me as I really can't be bothered investigating lines and lines of text..
  7. I usually provide detailed descriptions at the time of uploading artworks. The only fiddling I do is to periodically change what's on my Featured Gallery Pieces - which I limit to nine representative artworks: Comic Art Gallery of Terry Doyle at ComicArtFans.com
  8. You have a great CAF Gallery; I've visited many times.
  9. Steranko ain't no Stinko. As much as I like Matt Baker's work I'd go for JS.
  10. The artist's looking for commission work, so you're not exactly harassing him if you send gentle reminders that you're still interested in hiring him. Just keep your messages polite and courteous, as I'm sure you do, and there shouldn't be any problem with that kind of approach. Personally, I'd limit myself to two gentle reminders if my original enquiry is not responded to (maybe a week or two in-between communications) and leave it at that.
  11. Recently acquired this Spanish video-sleeve painting from a collector friend . . .APOCALIPSIS 2024 (A Boy and His Dog) an 1975 American black comedy science fiction film directed by actor L.Q. Jones, from a screenplay by Jones based on the 1969 novella of the same title by fantasy author Harlan Ellison. The film stars Don Johnson, Susanne Benton, Alvy Moore and Jason Robards. It was independently produced and distributed by Jones' company LQ/Jaf Productions. The film's storyline concerns a teenage boy (Vic) and his telepathic dog (Blood), who work together as a team in order to survive in
  12. Thanks, CC, saves me some further explanation, but not all. Yes, examples were asked for and, in my case, a valid example of attempted fraud was given (if you don't like the answers, don't ask the question). Not something for the OP of this sub-thread to explain away or justify by saying they can ask what they want for the art (asking prices and fraudulent listings are two different things). The subject of the Donnellys cropping up time and time again is down to their actions and their actions alone. Yes, there are keyboard warriors out there on social media, but on this art forum most peo
  13. I have had similarly (bad) experiences with Steve Donnelly and I listed just one example. Social media is just a communications tool where people share their thoughts, ideas and experiences (same as you're doing yourself) No different to real-life exchanges (assuming the on-line guys are identifiable and/or well known).. As for the business of asking Romita Snr to sign artworks he never touched with a pencil or ink brush, if you don't think that's a valid criticism, I'd love to hear your definition of what constitutes one? Pricing based on a high-end artist's work that doesn't actuall
