  1. Is the location of the published Princess of Mars painting known? Since Frazetta never got it back from the publisher initially. Did Frank ever get the original back? Considering its one of his most famous and coveted paintings, did the Frazettas after try and recover it?
  2. This isn't a DPS but might be similar to what you are looking for. I commissioned a five strip sequence and them framed them together. Plan on doing something similar when I find the two remaining Sky Masters strips to go along with the three other consecutive strips.
  3. Tales of The Zombie #6 DPS by Pablo Marcos Uncanny X-Men #153 by Dave Cockrum and joe Rubinstein
  4. But that is different. They were never intended to be published. The thread started talking about pages drawn intended to be published but for some reason they never were. With the Byrne Fan Fiction its artwork he did for himself with no intention of printing it. Since he hasn't worked for Marvel in years this is the first time new artwork has appeared on the market of Byrne drawing the classic X-Men from the early 80s. Its the high demand for this work. While the page prices seem high they are not compared to vintage X-Men published pages inked by Austin.
  5. Also be care to distinguish between unpublished and prelim pages. A good example is John Buscema's Conan The Rogue. He penciled and inked the whole thing but was known to redrew pages some finished and some unfinished. Also be careful of newer art that can have both pencils and blueline/light boxed inks. They are both considered published as they are part of the process for the page. Just the inks were what was reproduced. The pencils (usually done on the same piece of bristol in older comics) are on seprate sheet but not considered unpublished in the term you are using, ie rejected for some reason. Most unpublished comic book art come in the form of covers. Story had been written and drawn but editor changes the cover at the last minute or the artist is late with the cover. But I have seen splashes and panel pages (my example above). Most times when a page is changed usually the artist or editor will change it by altering the physical page (older art) whiteout, stats (copy of artwork) repositions or panels cut out. Newer comic art, changes are done digitally in pre-press. Be careful new art if changed ditally will be different than the physical comic but doesn't mean the artwork is unpublished.
  6. That isn't always true, that unpublished pages are worth less than published. Something like the unpublished original pages from Uncanny X-Men #137 before Jean Grey is killed off drawn by the same artist team as the published is probably worth more. Though pages from the issue published or unpublished are very expensive. I good example of unpublished pages worth alot more than the published is Fantastic Four #286, Return of Jean Grey. John Byrne originally wrote and penciled the issue with Terry Austin inks which included a flashback of what happened in X-Men #100, Jim Shooter decided he wanted to change the flashback sequence and brought in Chris Claremont to rewrite three pages and Jackson Guice to redraw it. John Byrne didn't like Jim's messing with the issue so he refused to draw the rewritten sequence and had his name taken off the issue (credit for writing and pencils is "You Know Who"). Guice decided to ape John and Terry's style to keep consistent and he did such a good job many readers never knew the flashback is by a different artist. Flashback has four pages (one page Guice didn't redraw) I used to own three pages by Byrne from the flashback and I still own the three Guice did. Ended up selling two of the Byrne pages. The Byrne page went for 10x the corresponding Guice page went for. Here is the Byrne unpublished page I still own.
  7. New Teen Titans #38 cover Eduardo Barreto and Mike Gustovich New Teen Titans teaming up with Infinity Inc.
  8. I am not a fan of the word grail, no one piece if I own it would stop me from collecting. There are a number of pieces high on my want list some specific some are general (great example of this artist on this series). I have been collecting for over 30 years and I have found one thing is true patience is the most important thing in collecting. I buy art I like, not as much now, being more selective recently. I have filled in many of the holes in my collection. I am still on the lookout for certain pieces, many not cheap but if I do get the opportunity to acquire it I have options (some nuclear). If it is for a very special piece with strong nostalgia.
  9. Brave and The Bold #187 Batman and Metal Men by Jim Aparo
  10. Artists (males) who draw silicon breasts and have no idea what real women look like outside of porn.
  11. Wonder how many times this image has been inked by artist over the past 40+ years?
  12. John is well known to drawn on the back of artwork ment for publication. Usually its just quick head or figures sketches. Not sure how finished the drawing Roy saw but was enough he thought it worth finishing and them using it for publication.
  13. On the back page of this Wizard of Oz page by John Buscema and Tony Dezuniga. written on the front is "Roy's comments asking Tony to have someone ink the drawing on back then Roy would vouche it. " I think Tony Dezuniga inked the figures Advertisement in Savage Sword of Conan #8. "Stop Dagon your tail - and subscribe to The Savage Sword of Conan"
  14. A few other selections Alan Davis (Own about 30 pieces) Comics Interview Cover #56 (Paul Neary inks) Frank Thorne (Own about 2 dozen pieces) Wizard and Warrior Women portfolio plate #6 Bill Willingham (Own about 50 pieces) Ironwood #6 cover
