I like the idea for the thread. There are a few pieces I would not mind finding.

 

The only problem is I know there are people, who are probably reading this thread right now, who are taking notes of what everyone wants and will seek out the artwork and hold it hostage because they feel the person who wants it may do something irrational to get it.

 

I've also known people who sought out artwork on other people's want lists only to charge them some exorbitant fee for the contact information of the owner.

 

In a perfect world this is a great idea for a thread. If it weren't for the remoras firmly attached to the underbelly of comic art it would be even more enjoyable hobby.

 

 

Very understandable. For me personally, there are dozens of pieces that I would love to obtain, but nothing that I would allow myself to be a slave to. If there's a piece I'm not meant to have then I won't get it. For me, OA is basically a way to remember my youth, but its only one avenue to do that. I already own two of the most important pieces I could ever want, so if I had to stop collecting now I'd be ok with that (that doesn't mean I don't spend a lot of time hunting for OA, or that I don't pay very nice prices for things I want).

 

That said, I'm looking for this piece of insanity:

Ralph Snart (Volume 2) #5 cover by Marc Hansen

 

and of course Valentino Guardians of the Galaxy covers, like this:

This is going to be the longest thread ever :grin:

 

I'd like to know if anyone has seen Kurtzman's Corpse on the Imjin from Two-Fisted Tales #25. And more importantly is it still together or pieced out?

Does Walt not have this cover? He keeps the majority of his stuff.

Looking for any pages by Luke Ross from 'Dark Horse Presents Annual 1998' (first comic appearance of Buffy the Vampire Slayer). I have 5 pages from the McGuffins short story and would like to pick up the remaining 5. Finders fee for locating any of these pages.

 

Would also be interested in some of the covers from the first Buffy run - issues 2, 5, 9, 28.

Yes about 99% sure that it still resides with him. I guess I should have changed my post to, "does anyone know how to convince Walt to get a CAF account?"

Do you want to tap the Board's network and expertise to track down a piece of art that you've been looking for? Post the objects of your quest here and Boardies can either PM you or respond below.

 

I'll start - does anyone know where the cover to Defenders #125 (Carl Potts/Bill Sienkiewicz) is? It was the first "New Defenders" issue and was hyped as being the next X-Men #94. :roflmao: Of course, it's a dollar bin book now, but I still have fond memories of it. I've asked a lot of the usual suspects if they had ever seen it, but nobody seems to have.

Sienkiewicz painted art :cloud9:

It exists in a private collection and has been off the market for a long time...I wouldn't expect it for sale or posted on CAF anytime soon.

 

Also... I wouldn't mind knowing if this exists, even if I can't afford to own it myself. Just the fact that someone has it would be interesting to me.

Sandman issue 4, page 17

Sandman issue 4, page 18

Again, not the end of the world if I don't ever acquire them. Would just love to see them in black and white, have a chance to complete a sequence, and have confirmation that Kieth didn't destroy them in one of his art burning sessions. :cry:

It's not a cover or page from a comic, but I would love to track down this Karate Kid drawing that Mike Wieringo did:

 

Google Image Search (a pretty cool tool when it works) returned a bunch of blogs where it was used. I wonder if you could write to them and ask. Heck, it might even say in the blogs.

 

Here's the link

 

Ignore the spaces.

Oh I've asked around before, and had absolutely no luck at all. But I live in hope.

I heard that page was stashed away as well. I was looking for it to go with the splash page that I have from the same comic:

I sold this cover several years ago, best guess around 2005 or so, but can't recall to who.

I would really like to find TF 27... Something that's been in the back of my mind for a long time as one of the covers I would like to own some day.

Piling on. X-Factor #52 cover.

Yes, it's by Liefeld. Don't judge me.

 

Also looking for pages from the interior. Terry Shoemaker and Al Milgrom handled the art duties.

Ah thanks. Oh well, I'll just have to sit on my hands and wait. It was just something I thought I'd throw out there.

I see... Oh well, I'll just have to be patient and save my money, heh. That's a pretty sweet page you have there though!

Definitely! It'll have to be a dream for awhile longer, heh.

You should have put the "don't judge me" BEFORE the picture. :whee:
