  1. Just wanted to get a pulse on the boards preference. Do you think it takes away from the piece or do you like the personalization? It's all up to personal preference, I don't have a hard stance either way.
  2. Question associated with thread topic. Let’s say if I insure a package and send it and it arrives bent to the recipient, who’s responsible for filing for insurance reimbursement? The sender or recipient?
  3. Got this cool Baron Zemo from Cory Hamscher today.
  4. Drats. I moved from Charlotte to KC a few years ago.
  5. You inspired me. Yvel Guichet Aquaman commission based on his run.
  6. So I have my sights on several of these pages. Is there any reason to believe that his pencils are not present under inks during his Kamandi run? Don't think I have heard otherwise but I know with Kirby sometimes it can be tricky. Are there any runs that I should be skeptical about?
  7. Na, just talking about getting to that next level. Without having anything to flip or sell its pulling from disposable income.
  8. But I really really want a Kirby! I do believe once I get a desired page it will mean that much more to me. Working toward a Kamandi page that is within reach.
  9. Also it seems that most of the larger collectors out there are from the NY area. Makes sense as that is where most of the raw artwork was floating around when first available.
  10. I just feel like I am going to go broke trying to get to where I want to be. I think unless you started years ago new collectors may have missed the boat.
  11. Did you amass most of your collection in the 70's and 80's? With prices today and just starting this passion a couple years ago I feel like I am stuck in the low to mid range of what is available, nice pieces that I enjoy, but nothing I could eventually turn into gold and go for something bigger. I guess my direct question is by collecting early on did that allow you to end up with high value pieces that you were able to leverage for other high value pieces....or are you all just filthy rich ? As much as I want it I just don't see myself with a couple Kirby's and covers from some of my favorite artist...and that makes me sad.
  12. Not to discuss specifics on sketch/commission pricing but is he the type of artist at a con that enjoys giving back if you are there at the right time or is he priced as expected for an A lister?
  13. I missed the boat on these. Were they popular in their time? Is there a market for them today?
  14. New page I got. Seems like a so so page but why "I" love it is because... Sucker for a page #1 splash Fast Car Fantastic Four Salvador Larroca pencils under ink. (pretty sure he gave up the graphite 10 years ago)
  15. Yikes. That’s like the spoilage amount for most runs.
  16. Wonder what the monthly units sold look like on modern Savage Dragons? I don't think I have seen someone have an issue in hand since maybe the late 90's.
  17. The Pete Rose or Cal Ripken jr of comics.
  18. Not trying to take anything away from Perez, just if we are looking at say the top 5 or maybe 10 important/impactful living artist he is closer to #10 than #1.
  19. Todd was successful in launching the third largest comic book publisher in the industry. No Todd, no Image. Plus McFarlane Toys and Entertainment.
  20. An argument I would like to see is who was/is more impactful to the industry Neal Adams or Todd McFarlane?
  21. IMO. The thing with Perez is that he is very workmanlike. He is the definition of a comic book artist. Solid at everything but does he excel at anything that would make him one of the most important or impactful artist living. Has he pushed the industry forward in anyway or inspired others to take on his style? Now if you are taking into account his body of work then he is without question a Mount Rushmore figure....but his art falls just a bit short.
