  1. I reached out to Rob a week or so ago....crickets I work with another artist who knows him/used to work with him. I've reached out to him as well and waiting to hear back. Thanks for the info!!!
  2. I've seen some art pop up lately that is allegedly 8" x 11" in format on Image Comics bristol board. Is this a thing? I'm trying to determine if the art is legit or a good forgery and have never heard of that format for artwork. Of course...I will be brave and say it's "Liefeld" artwork (braces himself for the onslaught of anti-Liefeld criticisms)...but hey, it was a part of my childhood and I dig it. Thanks for any help!
  3. As long as its effect is no worse than neutral, I'm good with that. It's more for my own benefit than anything else, I just didn't want to destroy the value of the piece (and I still may not do it). Frank Castle has been my spirit animal since I was about 10, so having signatures of all those involved in his creation is a goal of mine, lol!
  4. It was never published as far as I know. I totally get it though...hence the struggles. It's also why I'm not cracking open my 8.5 ASM 129. Once I pay for signature and reslabbing, I'll be over $200 into it, and it doesn't enhance its value to ME for that amount.
  5. Do you think it's different in this situation, since he created the character and the basic look?
  6. I have an original piece of Punisher artwork drawn, inked, and signed by Gil Kane. It's a really nice pinup piece as it is. However, Gerry Conway (the co-creator of Punisher for those who don't know!) is coming to the local comic shop this weekend and I'm wondering if it's a bad idea to have him sign the artwork as well. I'm not doing it to up the value, but I also don't want it to bring it down either (you never know when you'll need cash in a pinch...sick kid, etc). Any thoughts on this? Thank yoU!!!!
  7. That's interesting. I'm glad you chimed in Mr. Zipper. The FF 72 shown here with the member opinions as being fake is being sold on EBay right now for $300. Keep the legit, pawn off the fakes?
  8. Those dots in the last name felt wrong to me, as well. It's a shame...but I guess perhaps not because of the sky high price that's being asked. The irony is that the PSA/DNA quick opinion service that I got on it said "likely real"...SIGH. I've heard about PSA/DNA problems with forgeries as well.
  9. My gut is that it's quite possibly a fake, but seeing I have no real experience in this, I figured I'd put it out there to more experienced folks like yourselves. The comic also has a series of stamps on the back from the old comic shop "Comics and Comix" out of Berkeley, CA. I've seen other comics from that shop who got the same stamp treatment on the back cover as well. I mean, it could work towards it's authenticity, but my paranoid gut also tells me that it may have made this comic a more likely target for a forgery. The ultra premium price that was being asked also makes me hesitant...moreso than even the Marvel Masterpiece X-Men #1 and FF #1's from Dynamic Forces. SO hard to find ones with good provenance.
  10. Anyone have any tips on being able to spot fakes with these Kirby signatures?
  11. I'm just getting into the hobby of getting signed comics, and of course, I pick Jack Kirby as one of my first goals. I've done a good bit of reading and looking at confirmed signatures, the DF comics, etc...however, I haven't seen anything that kind of chronicles things to look for in fakes of his signature. I've seen the terrible knock off ones which bear no resemblance to his signature, but picking out the key things that all genuine ones possess has been elusive. For example, here's one I've looked at recently which in some ways compares favorably, but in other ways it looks fake to me (the "y" and the dot at the top of the "b" like it was start/stop). Does this one look genuine? The quick opinion from PSA/DNA was "likely genuine", but I know its still up in the air til they had it in-hand. I guess I'm looking for both opinions on this one, and what qualities or red flags tend to be rules with his autographs. Thanks!!
