  1. Unpublished - Son of Satan commission by Michael Golden
  2. Unpublished - silver age Scarlet Witch commission by Ramon Fradon
  3. I have 2 big gaps in my OA collection that I’d love to fill in 2021 (so if someone wants to help me out, I’d be happy to talk further!) 1) silver Age page featuring Mr Fantastic (doesn’t have to be by Kirby, but the earlier the better) 2) sliver Age (Marvel) Ditko page
  4. Put this one down in the “pages I never dreamt I’d own” category... John Romita Silver Age, twice-up, key issue (Peggy Carter’s first appearance)! Thanks Anthony for working with me to make it happen!
  5. A commission I ordered from Michael Golden during the CAF Comic Art Live Con arrived today! Daimon Hellstrom
  6. Neal Adams from 2018 and George Perez from 2014
  7. The X-Men 2 Beast page that I got for 19.5k (in trades) earlier this year, and then I subsequently traded for a different page from the same book, ended up on Heritage and sold for 32,000 (38kwith BP)! I suppose I could be bummed about money left on the table, but I’m actually happy as I figure it raises the value of my page. for those keeping score it sold for 13k in 2017... that’s a crazy jump!
  8. “Yes, he has a template and lightboxes over it, so that it is still all original art. For characters not on file, Neal has said he used Google search. For the price those headshots are going (quality is still awesome), they are relatively affordable and should be considered more like a glorified signature, or an upgraded remarque. It really doesn't matter if it's lightboxed or Googled for me - it's still Neal's handwork. But your mileage may vary.” I didn’t know that. I was fortunate to meet Neal at a smaller comic-con with less foot traffic than average I suspect. He dr
  9. It says “lemme down” I have a page from Avengers 9 where Stan seems to be making a playful dig at Don Heck, but for the life of me I can’t quite decipher it!
  10. I sold all of my comics, a huge collection of marvel silver age keys and first appearances, so that I could buy art instead. Now I buy pages, then try to get a CGC copy of the book the page is from, a reader copy, and any reprint (ie Marve Collectors item Classics, Marvel Tales etc) the story might appear in
  11. X-Men 2 for sale $400 plus $15 for shipping PayPal, or check accepted. 30 day return
  12. My X-Men 2 page has a correction note that says Cyclops. I wasn’t sure what needed to be corrected, but on investigating it appears that the figure in the panel was drawn by Kirby as Angel, but Stan had it changed to Cyclops (which was the right call as a panel on the prior page makes it clear that Angel is on the other side of the room with Professor X). my guess is the inker Paul Reinman made the corrections (you can see an erased line where the wings used to be, and the shadow toward the bottom was modified from what I suspect was meant to be the bottom of Warren’s wings) pretty c
