  1. The summer of 1986, Daredevil issue 232...I was 13 years old. My ritual, that entire summer, was to ride my bike to town to pick up comics at the local five and dime. I'd return home with my loot, drenched in sweat, and park myself in my parents bedroom. The air conditioning window unit set to "max". I was partial to Marvel, over DC. Marvel comics felt more "adult" (I was 13 years old, after all, and not a kid anymore!). Nothing I'd read in comics felt more real than what Kingpin was putting Matt through and nothing shocked me more than the murder of nurse Lois. The scene in the prison cell is, to this day, some of the best sequential storytelling. I read issue 232 and subsequent issue 233, every day, all summer long... the issue really stayed with me. PS still looking to buy Daredevil Born Again original art 🤑
  2. Thanks! I pre-ordered the paperback, loved it so much I bit the bullet and picked up the IDW Artist Addition on ebay for $220. Now all I need is the OA and I've got the trifecta!
  3. Everything in my collection is from current artists on recent titles, would like to start filling the nostalgia holes David Mazzucchelli - Daredevil Born Again would go a long way in checking off many boxes on my list
  4. "Lots of detail does not necessarily = great art" I tried to ask master kim jung gi about this...his details are insane, however, an Alex Toth (to me) is more question was lost in translation and I came off like an All that being said, if I hit the lottery tomorrow...I'd bid this up to $800k - heck hypothetical money be darned - make it $900k!
  5. Im a firm believer in quality over quantity. I'd rather have an A+ example over 5 B+ examples. So one might think I'd go with a more desirable cover (especially when thinking resale value). However, sequential storytelling is hard. All things being equal, I'd probably take 5 pages of well paced, well structured storytelling, and if there is a sweet splash page in there... win/ win!
  6. Neal literally saved Batman from cancellation. His art is fantastic, his stories iconic. He took Batman out of the daylight and put him back into the shadows... I went to every one of the Batman 75th anniversary panels at SDCC (five years ago?) and loved all the behind the scenes stories Adams & O'Neil shared...I guess, in my late 40s, I'm just old enough to appreciate?
  7. Finally, Sean Murphy, Batman White Knight, issue #4 pages 15 & 16
  8. My collection is pretty small, but what I've curated thus far is mostly multiple pages that capture a moment, share your examples Gerardo Zaffino, Conan the Barbarian (2019): issue #8 pages 2-4
  9. The premium version was 40% off after the security issues they had so I recently upgraded. Prior to that I would screen capture the image within the app to avoid the watermark
