  1. I run a FB group for Movie Poster original artwork: https://www.facebook.com/groups/131047770909401/ Currently at over 1,200 members and growing. It's (obviously) not comic-book art, but if you're a fan of the movies might be worth joining. You don't have to own any paintings to participate and can just sit back and enjoy the eye candy. For example . . .
  2. I still love CAF but, yeah, it's become a bit of a chore trawling through all the junk that gets posted (bit like eBay). Lately, I'm not really following new art being posted, preferring to opt for searches of those artists I admire.
  3. The painting's now been cleaned-up, matted and framed with recreated captioned materials currently being prepared. Here's a photo of how it now looks (excuse the glass reflection). . .
  4. Good luck to the show's audience . . . they're going to need it.
  5. I'd liken him to someone who produced bad fan-fiction back in the day . . . and never really progressed much over the years with his attempts at writing.
  6. Chibnall was from Formby, Merseyside, so it is him.
  7. NEW IN TODAY . . . an unused movie poster design for the 1968 film, THE POWER. Not 100% sure who the artist is but I lean towards Gray Morrow, who is credited with painting the used movie poster design (and to my eye, there are strong similarities). The movie was both George Pal and Byron Haskin's last outing on the big screen (WAR OF THE WORLDS is probably their best-known and loved collaboration).

  8. You could use it to line the bottom of your budgie's cage? Maybe he'd like the bright colours if you wanted to go that route . . .
  9. I agree with most that having this unfinished page inked was not a wise move. Sinnott is rightly regarded as a terrific inker, yet the way he's inked the Surfer's face looks off to me. Might have been a better option to have asked Sinnott to ink a separate version to keep the unfinished original artwork intact, but what's done is done. The BIN price-tag seems horrendous to me and I'm struggling to see how having an interesting (unfinished) page of artwork altered can justify the ask-price? If anything, what's been done here is more likely to have a negative impact on value. Would be very surprised to learn that this one finds a buyer anytime soon. Not angry, just saddened. One to be filed under, "It seemed like a good idea at the time".
  10. I'd be absolutely shocked to hear that this drawing saw print, professionally. Let's be honest, it's not very good, is it? Maybe for a fanzine?
  11. Have the painting matted, so it's not touching the glass directly.
  12. Maybe they're offering some of Steve Donnelly's fake cover artworks and are under strict instructions not to disclose any visual information that might get tongues wagging?
