    Could someone direct me to where to buy Amanda Connor art? Looks like at one point she was with Albert Moy, but i couldn't find any pages

    Didn't really want to start a different thread for this, so I'll ask here. Does Fanfare ever have any sales? I recently came across some Immonen pages I'm interested in, but they are from several years ago and i have other financial obligations atm, so not exactly priority for me right now. Thanks

    Mylars for OA

    So i recently moved my modest collection into an itoya. Was i wrong in thinking this alone was sufficient to keep? These comments make me feel like that alone is not adequate
  6. Apologies if this didn't deserve its own thread. Browsing CLink auctions and to my shock i came across this particular cover I loved from my formative years (lol). Been collecting some OA for ~2 years, and this his is the first time I've seen a piece like that at auction (seen plenty in others' collections) so excuse my excitement. My question is, I was a little taken back the original differs pretty significantly from the published image: Original Published In this case, who would be responsible for the changes? Did the colorist just take it upon himself? Or did the artist know in advance the effect he wanted and just sort of wing the bottom half as a result? Seems weird to draw and ink it if that was the case. Does this happen a lot?

    Hey guys, first time in this part of the boards. These covers are great. I recently purchased a Star Wars cover sketch by Medina from Court and am having him submit it to cgc directly. Will it be a yellow label since he's his rep? Doesn't really matter honestly, having it cgc'd more for the case/display. Why do you guys prefer the books to just regular commisions? Just curious. I'll post pics down the road!

    Noob here. What's this buyers premium? Don't HA get a cut from the seller? And does is this premium included when people talk about what a piece sold for?

    Sketch covers and CGC

    I just bought my first sketch cover and will be getting it slabbed. My thought process was mainly for presentation (as it is a wraparound piece) and authentication. I could care less about the grade, personally, as the book is just an annual, but that matters to some, so the higher the better i guess in that regards
  11. Thanks for that. Not sure if anyone else is having issues, but the link worked when i checked it.
  12. In case this wasn't apparent, i will consider any reasonable offers.
  13. PM if interested

    Art behind glass: Show off your framed art!

    Hey guys, new here! Here's two pieces i had framed a couple months back. The kylo is the cover to Force Awakens #5 and the other is a "rare" commission from Sean (he's no longer doing those afaik). Hope you enjoy!
