  1. Ironic that you mention archival adhesives given that many of pieces feature old glue (from word balloons) and tape stains. In many ways, comic book original art is one of the few collectibles where imperfections are often tolerated!
  2. Thanks! I used to take my stuff to a framer, and some stuff I still do, but the cost can add up in a hurry. Trying the do it yourself (read Michael's) these days.
  3. Yes. i know if you have a mat, you're okay, as it keeps the art from the glass, but I want to float some of my art so you can see all the editorial comment/marks. Turns out you have to buy frame spacers online, and it's like $50/100 ft.
  4. I've been told many times that when framing art, the art shouldn't be in direct contact with the glass. What is the reason for this, and how is it different than having art in a mylar sleeve?
  5. In addition to page rate, don't artists also get royalties these days?
  6. Breakup value aside, classic Vampi just doesn't resonate with today's collectors. The other issue is that other Vampi collectos are also in sell mode.
  7. Me! You've neglected to mention the Bill Ward contribution!
  8. They aren't reading, they're playing video games. When's the last time you saw a 12 year old in a comic book store?
  9. Original Attributed Watercolour on paper Image size 8.3 x 11.7" 21 x 29.8 cm Framed size 14.9 x 18.5" 37.8 x 47 cm Signed by Artist Provenance details available "Attributed" is never a good thing.
  10. sig is horrible in the first, and only slightly less horrible in the second one. Neither looks legit to me. Also, anything from Hungary does not count as provenance to me.
  11. I agree. I don't, for example that Spider-Man pages have gone up in value because of the films. Two totally different audiences.
