  1. A take on a current CGC thread. Being relatively new, I'm curious to hear from folks that been at this for a long while. Does the desire to own a page or an example from an artist ever die out? Is there an example or artist you wanted - never managed to get - and now are okay (even happy) about it?
  2. Modern: Tradd Moore- never appreciated his style still SSB. PERFECT marriage of subject matter and artistic style and finally got to appreciate his sequential storytelling. Here's the rub, now while he's done many things only a SSB page can scratch that itch. Nostalgia: David Mazzucchelli Born Again - a supply side issue 😄 Mike Mignola - recent Comic Art Live #15 most everyone mentioned Mignola as an artist that isn't represented in their collection. Just haven't found/seen the piece that speaks to me. Doesn't even have to be HB. Darwyn Cooke- really want a New Frontier page with Wonder Woman. Another supply side issue 😄
  3. Tradd Moore SSB page David Mazzucchelli BA page Nice Mignola published example
  4. Walt Simonson was on a Drink and Draw where he explained selling his first piece of art, then he spent the cash and didn't have the cash or the art.
  5. Came to know the books a few years ago. Still looking for my first published piece to add to collection... Thanks for sharing, everyone
  6. Couldn't find any history on the majority: Issue 5 of Curse sold complete, the splash was up for sale by the owner on his website for 3,600 euro and sold for $6,600 on HA
  7. Sean Murphy Batman pieces have been commanding some (I think) impressive numbers at auction. Todays HA auction seems to be continued confirmation of the trend with a few more strong data points. Recent HA auctions: 10/3 S ean Murphy Batman: White Knight#2 Splash Planche 24 (DC, 2018)...: $6,250 10/3 Sean Murphy Batman: White Knight #5 Planche 20 (DC, 2018).... $4,000 9/12 Sean Murphy Batman: Curse of White Knight #4 Page 17 (DC Comics, 2018).... $2,640 (Albert Moy was selling at NJ con for $3,500) 7/10 Sean Murphy Batman: Curse of the White Knight #5 Splash Page 22 Original Art (DC Comics, 2020).... $6,600 Recent CLink auctions: 6/2 Sean Murphy Batman: White Knight #7 Page 4 (DC, 2018 $3,600 + 3% buyers premium = $3,708 Is todays strong showing because the art was part of the European comic art auction - Sean has a strong EU/French following and seeing more of his art on 2DG. Also, based on todays HA auction prices that CLink page looks like a steal! Congratulations to all the winners! All fantastic art.
  8. Exercise in futility - bump. Price range $10k-$20k depending on example.
  9. Got to talk to the artist, Merwan, and ask about the difference in dialogue between the OA and is what he had to say: Eh! Yes the first change is importante! « Alors tu te ramènes » means « come on! » « Alors tu prends racines? » is an expression that means « will you stay there like if you were a plant? » And that’s Wallis problem, he is not moving in his life and at the end he is trying to suicide him by planting his legs in the toxic solution like a tree. The difference is that Aster is always in motion. The second change is not so important but it shows that Wallis is very accurate with the model of the bomb that reenforce there recycling way of life.
  10. I was there - got there right before 11am - had to wait maybe 30 minutes in line for the room. Max capacity was 50 people. Moy was mobbed! I was pleasantly surprised to see he had a recent HA auction piece from Sean Murphy's Batman White Knight for sale for $3500. Think it's the first time seeing Sean's work sold by another dealer other than Galerie 9eme
  11. Replace comic art with wine and that was me... Buying every interesting varietal.. My liver couldn't keep up with my wallet and soon had over 300 bottles. Similar to art you start by casting a wide net, then dial it back to what you really enjoy. Luckily learned my lesson with wine (which you can drink) and have been pretty disciplined with my art purchases.
  12. I've been using Collectibles Insurance - was recommended to me by Jason at Essential Sequential. They are easy to work with. Recently had to ship a piece I sold and, to my delight, turns out the shipped art is insured through my policy. So got to save on insuring via FedEx - that was a nice bonus.
  13. There's the question, here's the backstory.... So recently got to know and chat with a French collector who turned me on to the works of Merwan and his book Mécanique Céleste. I enjoyed the art enough that I picked the book up on Kindle, got through it in French and then found there was a kickstarter to publish the book in English!! I just picked up a page from the book and am so happy that it was actually available! Now here is the question: The art has word balloons/dialogue on the page, it's in French. However, the French dialogue on the OA is not the same French dialogue as what was published for the French book! Do you think it matters? Buying one of the best pages out of a 200 page book - all this time after it was published - I thought myself very lucky. But now I am left to wonder, do people frown upon this sort of thing? That it's not the "published" page? I love the page. The art, all done in watercolor, is fabulous. To my mind having the dialogue on the OA not agree with what was published is just a glimpse into the artists process and doesn't diminish the work. Curious to know what you all think . Here is a link to the Kickstarter if you have interest:
