  1. Amazing Adventures (Killraven) #32 page 10 by P. Craig Russell and Dan Green. This is undoubtedly the most psychedelic art in my collection!
  2. That's great! FYI that I looked through both issues of the Fantagraphics Ditko Collection books and it's not included in there. Those books only go up to 1976, so it's possible this was done a bit later.
  3. This is from an 80's era Dave Cockrum Nightcrawler sketch, which I've been fortunate enough to own since 1999. You can see the drawing and more details here: https://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=1450251
  4. Sorry for the belated reply. This was used for a house ad for the Human Fly. Dave didn't remember exactly, but thought that someone in the bullpen might have added the stats as a joke before it was returned to him. I owned this for about 15 years before selling on Heritage in 2017.
  5. 1. John Byrne 2. Dave Cockrum 3. Jim Lee 4. Paul Smith 5. Mark Silvestri 6. John Romita Jr. Cockrum is my personal favorite, but I have to credit Byrne as he probably had more to do with the X-Men's success than any other artist. I'm not ranking the #1-93 artists, otherwise Jack Kirby and Neal Adams would have to be up there too. I've also omitted the last 15 or so years as I'm not overly familiar. Whoops - I forgot Paul Smith, who had a great run after Cockrum's second time around. I went back and added him above Silvestri.
  6. I have a collection of Dave Cockrum prelims which you can see here: https://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=188397 It's hard to choose favorites, but probably these two, due to the amount of detail. The Black Panther prelim was pretty much used as is for the published cover, while Gil Kane went in a slightly different direction for Captain Marvel #53.
  7. Dave Cockrum for me for both #1 and 2. (This includes several X-Men pieces not currently up on comicartfans).
  8. They don't look right to me. Some of Dave's later work wasn't so great, due to his health issues, but I'm skeptical. Dave would also typically sign somewhere with his trademark signature -- so unless there's a signature or note on the back, I wouldn't bet on these being his work.
  9. That Dr. Strange page is amazing! Any idea what Bechara was asking for it? I'm guessing around 100K.
  10. I have several commissions that I love, but this is probably my favorite, because the execution far exceeded my expectations. Bob Layton was having a commission sale back in 2007 and I just asked for a drawing of the Starjammers facing forwards. He delivered this publication worthy piece with title stats and tons of background detail. I was a very happy camper when this arrived!
  11. That Xenozoic #13 cover is amazing!!! Here's my one example -- the alternate cover to Fantastic Five #2 from 1999. I believe this may be Mark Schultz's only Marvel cover (not counting Xenozoic reprints), but let me know if that's not the case.
  12. Nice! Thanks for posting! I skipped the show, but will hopefully be at the art con in April.
  13. You're right -- I missed the Titans link the first time around: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/11237574@N07/sets/72157642895409823/ These are really cool! I've only ever seen the original art for about 2-3 of them. Hopefully more will turn up.
  14. Very cool! It looks like those were penciled by Steve Stiles and inked by Frank Giacoia. The FF splash was published in Super Spider-Man #174: https://www.comics.org/issue/536511/ That series reprinted American Spider-Man stories with some occasional new art, such as this piece. You can see a picture of the published splash on this website: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/11237574@N07/sets/72157642901275784/ The Captain Marvel art was most likely published in The Titans #14, another British reprint comic: https://www.comics.org/issue/537074/ Unfortunately, I couldn't find a scan of the centerspread, so I can't confirm for sure that it was published, but it seems very likely.
  15. Jim Sherman and Tom Palmer were there last year too. It was a good show from my perspective -- not too big, but still enough dealers and artists to be well worth the trip.
