  1. Phil Churchill or Rich Donnelly could likely give some insights here on which pages were worked on by Cockrum. I see it in Colossus' face on this splash. Perhaps on Nightcrawler as well. But, not so much on most of the pages from this issue. But, many times you see these pages listed as "Cockrum" pages. Not saying that Heritage is representing it that way here. It's true that he did assist with this issue, but it doesn't specifically say he worked on the page being sold. It leaves it to the buyer to assume.
  2. I don't believe it's accurate to say there are art assists by Dave Cockrum on the X-Men #110 page. I don't believe he touched every page as it was an inventory story. I believe he touched the splash and perhaps some other pages, but I don't see his work here.
  3. There were two versions of the Caps and Punisher. So, 25 of each type of sketch.
  4. Agree - this was one of my favorite ones in recent years. Classic page after classic page - most of which had great character shots/action. And, some great covers and bonus material. Thanks to all the collectors that contributed to this one to make it so great.
  5. I just talked with John Dolmayan - he'll have an update for everyone next week, starting with the dealers. With everything still very fluid here in California, he's working to firm up the venue, dates, and precautions that will need to be in place before announcing anything. He's still committed to putting on a show, but wants to make sure he works through the additional details that are required these days.
  6. I had somewhat forgotten about this rare Punisher wraparound cover until recently... I like the colors on this one. A rare combination by Larry Stroman and Frank Cirocco reprinting Marvel Preview #2 and Marvel Super Action #1 with a new story by Mike Vosburg (the artist who drew Punisher Limited Series #5). The editing on this book wasn't great as they credited Vosburg's story to Russ Heath and misspelled Gray Morrow's name on the inside front cover.
  7. Based on the stats I was seeing, it looked like 217 pieces sold on the first day out of 2729 - so a little less than 10% of the art listed. I sold four pieces on the first day which I guess is better than average. For the 2nd day, I'm dropping the prices on some of the pieces in my gallery "Chuck Costas' Cherry Blossom Explosion" to encourage some more sales. Here's what's reduced: Joe Jusko Large Hulk Painting - Was $6,000, now $5,000 Mike Zeck/Phil Zimelman Large Iron Man Steel Terror Painting - Was $5,000, now $4,000 Cerebus #167 Cover – Was $6,000, now $4,000 Cerebus #108 Page 20 – Was $1,400, now $1,200 Cerebus #166 Pages 18-19 – Was $3,000, now $2500 Cerebus #233 Page 1 - Was $1,100, now $1,000 Herb Trimpe Chicken Scratch Newspaper Strip Prelim - Was $75, now $45 John Buscema Two Double-Sided Prelim Pages (Conan & Shreiking Man/Cowboy) - Was $250, now $200 Batman/Scarecrow 3D #1 p. 35 by Carl Critchlow & Sal Buscema - Was $200, now $150 Man of Steel #94 p. 3 by Ron Frenz & Sal Buscema (Strange Visitor) - Was $150, now $100 You can find all my pieces here: https://www.comicartfans.com/comicartlive/Booth.asp?bid=57
  8. The original is actually modern sized and not twice up. But, this has to be a copy taken from an Artists Edition.
  9. Prop Store sold this "fresh to market" interior a few months ago for $1187.50 (including BP). That was right when the coronavirus hit so the market could have been impacted a bit, but it should give you a good sense of what a nice interior page goes for on the open market,
  10. I'm extremely supportive and excited for the virtual Comic Art Live event that Bill Cox is setting up on CAF 5/30-5/31. I hope it will be something that continues to evolve and thrives and encourages dealers and collectors to make available items that haven't been seen before. I wanted to start a thread so that those participating to give a little teaser as to what they'll be revealing at the show. I'll start! For my own booth "Chuck Costas' Cherry Blossom Explosion," I'll be unveiling five new Cerebus pieces straight out of Gerhard's personal collection including a rare cover! In addition to that I plan to have art from $75 to over $5k by: Joe Jusko – One of his greatest and larger paintings Mike Zeck – An amazing Zeck/Zimelman painted collaboration John Buscema – Some preliminary sketch work Sal Buscema – His inking over some other great artists Herb Trimpe – Rare comic strip art Mike Vosburg – American Flagg, Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, and a page from Cancelled Comics Cavalcade Ron Frenz – A Strange Visitor page from Man of Steel Art Nichols – Justice League Europe art Steve Moncuse – An early Fish Police splash page Bryan Hitch – An X-Men double-page splash with an amazing team shot (including a huge shot of Wolverine) Also, check out the "Prop Store - Ultimate Collectibles" where there will be a variety of film production artwork from fan favorite movies such as Batman, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars, Dune, Jason and the Argonauts, The Rocketeer, The Chronicles of Narnia, Jumanji, Goonies, Star Trek (III & IV), Gladiator, and more.
  11. They look mostly right, but the white border around the edges concerns me a bit. Typically legit copies don't have that and could indicate a 2nd generation copy was made around that timeframe. Peter and Kevin did run those off in batches so all ~50 copies from the run don't look exactly the same, but I'd want to examine them more to see if there were more signs that these could be 2nd generation copies.
  12. If you're talking about blueline copies that were colored as part of the printing process, the earliest examples I can think of would be for Dark Knight in 1986. Lynn Varley colored those on pages that were smaller than the original art. A similar process was later used for other books printed on nicer paper like the Punisher Return to Big Nothing GN, the TPB of Kraven's Last Hunt and American Flagg (Vol. 2). Those were done around 1988. The B&W art was copied on an acetate overlay and then placed over the hand-painted blueline art.
  13. The ones I got in the 80's just came in brown wrappers that you could slip the books in and out of. These are a lot cooler.
