  1. I've got digital and physical copies of 250 designs by Jack Kirby done for Hanna Barbera shows in the late 70s. I bought them from Dave Karlen, who bought them from an animator who worked with Kirby and Hanna Barbera. Some of them are from the Super Friends show and have Batman and Superman, most are from other 70s shows like Space Ghost, Teen Force, Space Stars and even Scooby Doo and the Lord of the Rings animated movie. The designs get pretty crazy, and if the reason Kirby left Marvel was over Kirby wanting to be more creative, this is Kirby unleashed. A few of these pages can be found on the internet in various places, but 80% of the pages I've got haven't been seen by the public. They haven't been published in a book, either, to my knowledge. Since I'm in Australia and postage for 250 pages would be expensive (like it was the other way around), I can sell a link to a downloadable zip file containing the 250 1-2 MB photos for PayPal funds. We can discuss the price. Alternatively, if multiple people want to split a price I can post a link here for everyone. If you're interested send me a PM and we can work something out. Some examples:
  2. I am the seller of those listings. I have around individual 250 Xerox sheets like those posted. All different. If anyone wants to make me an offer for some or all of them, let me know, there's a great mix of characters, animals, gadgets and ships; even a few of Superman for the Superfriends show and many more which I haven't shown photos of. I'm able to post anywhere in the world, I could even do a swap if anyone wanted to. @Unca Ben @KirbyJack @MR SigS @Ken Aldred
  4. Unsurprising that Beerbohm would have likely had some pretty good stuff in that stack. He was at the forefront of the market in those days.
  5. Perhaps I should rephrase this thread... Does anybody CARE that there could be all kinds of grail art that we may never see?
  6. It makes sense that we may only view the top of the iceberg when it comes to Original Comic Art. I'm considering about the rare, historical, A-grade pieces out there that are deliberately hidden by their owners, or pieces which still exist somewhere unseen. Some pieces we will only ever have one glimpse at - Fresh to auction and then they dissapear forever. Prime example number one, is the famous page from Batman #1 sold at Guernsey's auction house in 1986. Hasn't been seen since. Even pieces we assume are long gone - We have little evidence to suggest they really have been destroyed. You could fit the entire original art to Action Comics #1 in a draw. The world's a big place - with a lot of draws. And the scariest thing about this, is we will never know if this stuff is out there somewhere. Does that scare anybody else? What are your views?
  7. Bump, still looking + edited ad with more info
  8. I bought 16 comics from Raze via international post. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. Would definitely recommend.
  9. Hopefully someone could help me out in answering "How many units of a particular comic issue would typically have been produced during the silver age?" Yes, it's a vague question. Did DC or Marvel ever release their mintage stats from the silver age? Does anyone have any educated guesses on how many would have been produced for the major lines like Batman/Superman for instance? 100,000? 200,000? Thanks in advance for comments.
