Wow!

 

Crow 1 CGC 8.5

 

Being an O'Barr Crow collector is becoming a very expensive endeavor.

I know this isn't the book but though you guys would appreciate it. I got this commission from James O'Barr back in 2009.

He does a lot of conventions or you could email him. His rates are very reasonable and a really nice guy. I have never seen one as nice as this one though. He was really busy at the con I got this at so I told him don't do mine take your time. I gave him money for shipping and told him to just mail it to me. Worked out for me. He said he bought new markers at the con and my sketch was to see if he liked them. :)

A few months back he told me he starts at $125 or $150 for sketches. Extremely reasonable IMO for all he puts into his sketches.

The artist is Jason Metcalf but I got this from his inker Jeff Balke. I believe the art itself is a print that the Balke then customized. I saw him working on it at NYCC and bought it off him right away because I liked it so much.

I believe it was like $125. He is very reasonable for the amount of work he puts in. He is also a really nice guy.

The Crow Reportedly Moving Forward In March With Corin Hardy As Director

 

The on again off again remake of The Crow is finally back on again, according to a new report on TheWrap. The project is scheduled to be Relativity's first production project post-bankruptcy.

 

While there's currently no star attached to play Eric Draven in the film, Relativity has signed director Corin Hardy to a holding deal. The remake will center around Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to track down his killers with the help of a mystical crow.

 

Looks like this is assumed to be Relativity's jump from bankruptcy.
