  1. Coming late to the party but what a thread!! Congrats to Rick and all the buyers of these amazing books!
  2. I thought the same thing when I saw the banner. It actually belongs to the comic dealer on the other side of Albert's booth.
  3. Glen My recollection is that it is all oil.
  4. Not a big fan of the painting. Saw it several times when the consignor had it for sale at SDCC about 10 years ago. Will be interesting to see where it closes.
  5. This single page may sell for more than what the whole book sold for way back in 2002 IIRC.
  6. Judging from the location of the white out in the inked version ("N" in Returns for example) as well as other areas, it appears that Frank inked the pencil version which I posted. Happy to hear other people's thoughts.
  7. I would have your friend reach out to Josh. Perhaps he could reach out to the new owner to see if he is entertaining offers.
  8. Yes. The original pencil version was published in one of the trade paperbacks. This is the first time I have seen it inked.
  9. I would contact Josh at CLink and see if he can ask if the buyer is willing to make a quick flip.
  10. Congrats on the happy ending. Gotta love the USPS. Reminds me of a story back in the 1980s when I was completing my EC run of books. Tracked down a copy of Tales of Terror Annual 1 and the guy shipped it to me using "ME" as the abbreviation of Massachusetts instead of "MA". Package was lost for TWO years. It did eventually get delivered to me in a very weathered package. Unreal.
  11. Take a look at the final results. It says sold for 50K. Yet when I was watching the auction live it was closer to 80K. WTF??
  12. Yowza!! You don't see that everyday! Congrats!
  13. Yeah, not having Tom Orzechowski's signature was a deal-breaker for me.
  14. Th "old timer" being interviewed is 52. I hear he is selling much of his collection to support his Geritol addition. Very sad.
  15. I'm going to date myself with this post but I believe All Star Auctions sold the cover to FF 56 nearly 20 years ago in one of their sales (ahh, the good ol' days)
  16. Since it was published only once, I feel that it doesn't have the emotional pull that other classic (i.e. widely published) images have (EQ, Death Dealer, Snow Giants, etc). That might hurt the final sales price.
  17. Now THAT is an interesting painting!! After being used as the cover to Child of the Sun, it was never reprinted in any other Frazetta book that I can think of. As the description states it was sold to the consignor in the early 1970s. I was told that this piece popped up at the Windy City Pulp show a few years back with a price tag of 200-250K (can't remember) with no takers. Going for sale in the Illustration auction and not the Comic Art auction. Will be fun to watch.
  18. I just talked to a collector who consigned page 21 to Heritage!!! Be on the lookout!
