  1. Letterer extraordinaire talks about working for DC and being asked to extend the art for Neal Adams pages as the art was drawn at the wrong size. https://kleinletters.com/Blog/pulled-from-my-files-99-a-dc-check-stub-from-1977/ Interesting reading as it shows why lettering was moved on the original board in the days before digital. Enjoy!
  2. I've come across a few artists selling art there, but only via their own sites/social media. I haven't found a good way to browse original comic art in general at their site. I bought some art recently from Iam Macewan (https://www.etsy.com/shop/ianmacewan and also from an indie guy Josh Pettinger (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Goitercomics, no art up right now, but you can buy his self-published book).
  3. Would you rather... Have 5 pages by an A list artist Or 1 cover by that same A list artist for an A list title? Essentially, if you could "trade up" pages for a cover, what would be the magic number?
  4. Another question/thread could be "Should a dealer/rep write on the art in the first place?" Modern, bronze, copper, silver age, etc - they're seen differently. It's ok to write in the margin of a modern piece and we think nothing of it, but if that was done on a silver age piece, I think there would be an uproar. I for one erase the prices on a modern piece when I get them. On old (i.e., not modern) pieces, I leave them there and smile (cry) when I see them. I might consider doing things differently based on this thread.
  5. Well if that isn't one of the coolest things ever. I would have loved to have seen how a page can be removed/put back, but it's majestic. Congrats on doing that.

  7. I've had a couple of pages from the run, and they didn't have this blue tint to them. It makes me think that these are blueline inks over a scan of the pencils. I'd pass on it without getting artist confirmation it's legit.
  8. Bump for the actions! Note that the McKeever auction was ended. It was a piece of art that came, unexpectedly, in a package with another art and I couldn't track down the owner. Well, the owner reached out today so it'll be going to him after many years of being away. https://www.ebay.com/sch/gotsuperpowers/m.html Thanks for looking! Simon
  9. I hear you. Well, assuming your library has a website, they have access to digital resources including things like OverDrive* and Hoopla, which have comics. I personally don't read comics digitally, but I know lots of folks do. *Disclaimer, I work for OverDrive.
  10. Got a library card? I bet your local library has it, physically or even digitally.
  11. Finally, it's hard to get a better Death than one drawn by Bachalo and Buckingham.
  12. Though this Nowlan Vertigo Jam page is perfection too...even if it doesn't meet the original posters requirements!
  13. I started reading Sandman during the Kindly Ones (talk about being late to the party!) so this is a perfect example for me.
