  1. To be clear I am not knocking the process. These artist have a craft that I appreciate and admire....and yes it's also about the finished product. I'm just stating from a collectors point of view that tends to frame and display as apposed to collect and store, it is more appealing when the blue pencil is less visible.
  2. Here is a good example of what I was really getting at. I am interested in this cover but a little turned off by the heavy use of the blue pencils. If it was graphite I would most likely purchase without hesitation.
  3. On some of the older pieces I don't seem to noticed as much, perhaps because inks were done over them. An example I was thinking would be like the piece I purchased below. Love reading the Scooby Apocalypse series so I picked up a Scrappy splash. Done by veteran Pat Olliffe the blue just seems to overwhelm the page, I still love it, but it is a bit jarring. Again, still a sophomore in collecting, maybe I will grow to appreciate.
  4. Not talking about a blue line scan. Some artist will use a blue pencil to set the scene on a page and then go over it with traditional graphite. The look is not very appealing as for a collector you can see the blue sketches on the page. My questions are does this effect value? Is it still considered original pencils if listing it? And does it turn you off as a collector?
  5. Nice Killer Frost splash. Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S. #2 Neil Edwards Penciller, Jay Leisten Inker
  6. Will the Egyptian Queen be purchased today?
  7. I own this one.....'s a Mike Hoffman.
  8. Throw it up () on ebay for $100 or best offer. No need to get it verified.
  9. There has to be a story behind to share?
  10. Those are fantastic. What’s the size?
  11. Would love to see any covers that the group might have.
  12. Love the IDW collections. They have done these for several years now.....I'm assuming Marvel get's a cut.....yes?
