  1. This nice Thor vs. Hercules page by John Buscema is up for auction ending on March 4th. https://usm.propstoreauction.com/m/lot-details/index/catalog/249/lot/58953/?url=%2Fm%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F249%2F%3Fpage%3D1%26view%3Dgrid%26key%3Dthor%26sale%3Dundefined%26catm%3Dany%26order%3Dorder_num%26xclosed%3Dno%26featured%3Dno
  2. For the record, I wanted to correct this as I've talked to Mike Zeck numerous times about this. 1) The Punisher Limited Series was always intended to be 5 issues; 2) Because there hadn't been a 5 issue Limited Series until that time, the people in production had re-used the "Four Issue Limited Series" logo on the first issue; 3) Mike pointed out the error after the 1st issue which is why it was corrected with issue #2; 4) But, after issue #2, they went back to making the same mistake and Mike didn't feel like correcting it again so he let it lie until they figured it out with issue #5; 5) Vosburg was brought in because Carl Potts was worried that Mike was too slow and wouldn't finish on time. But, when Zeck was removed from the book, Steven Grant also walked which is why the creative team on the last issue is different. To Vosburg's credit, he told me they only gave him a week to draw the issue and he had no idea at the time how impactful that Limited Series was going to be. So, for those that were disappointed in the last issue, keep that in mind - Vosburg did his best!

  7. I'll be there for my second year in a row. Chicago has some great food (in addition to a fun show).
  8. Now, you just need to start collecting the foreign variants of this book! Where's the Halloween Fest version? This book takes me back to the early days of collecting!
  9. Yes, the #35 is one of the few that are still complete along with #6, 7, 28 & 29 (and possibly #3 & 56).
  10. When you see these covers all together, it made me realize how Carl Potts was borrowing from Mike Zeck's design from Punisher LS #2 on the cover to Punisher WJ #2 (along with a little Superman pose).
  11. Yep, back in the 90's when Comic Images did a line of card sets based on artists, I found a lot of pages I owned got used for the Mike Zeck set. And also found some art I have in the G.I. Joe card set from around that same time.
  12. He still has six fingers on both versions! One of the classic cover mistakes of all time.
  13. I used to own that FF #10 page.. Forgot how much great Doom imagery there was in it, but it always bothered me that they Doom and Reed had switched bodies and they weren't themselves. Wouldn't mind having it back!
  14. True, Mike turned 70 last year - time for him to actually enjoy some retirement! He's earned it.
  15. Albedo was graded 9.4 way back in the day. Was thinking about re-submitting to see if it might get a 9.6.
