I actually also thought this owner was known.  In fact, I thought this page was discussed in detail about a year ago on these boards?  It's not my cup o' tea, so I didn't pay that close attention, but I think there was a thread about it...

It was discussed, but nothing about an owner. Hit me up if anyone knows anything! :)

When we put together the Zeck Artist's Edition, the Cap #282 cover was not one we could track down. Good luck!  I'd love to get a scan of that for Mike's files if you ever do track it down.

I'm thinking it ended up in France after a conversation with Mike and the fact I found a page from 282 (the owner won't let go of though) in France... man, hope I come across it, would pay what it would ask for sure. Still hope someone can let me know of the other Nomad stuff or if anyone knows of a way to get in touch with Hawbaker.

S. Clarke Hawbaker? Try Facebook. And good luck!

Thanks Hal. Yeah I’ve reached out to him on Facebook a few times, one response many years ago about commission work but no follow up email and no response since after a couple more attempts. Hopefully something will be on the wind at some point and I can get out my net ??

Call me crazy, but any artist that hard to get a hold of just to ask about doing a commission would be on the bottom of my list of people I'd want to get a commission from, unless payment was sent after the work was done (rare). So many artists are all too eager to take the money and deliver whenever they get around to it. One that won't even get back with you before it's even started sounds like a giant commissioning red flag.

 

But that's just me...

Has anyone ever seen the cover to Batman #451 or even seen any pages from it?

Anyone remember who posted the Gambit and War Machine paintings from the 1996 Marvel Materpieces set on the boards a few years back?

Funny...I had this book when I was a kid, but I don't remember the part where they all fly into a giant flaming vajayjay.

One of the 7 rejected covers for issue #1

Anyone know where this? SSM #200. I have always loved this cover and would equally love to see the art for it! 

Thanks detectives!

Hi all,

Does anyone know where this art from Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall is?  I think it is by Vess and Kaluta.

...and here's the ONE LAST PAGE :pullhair: to complete the interior set of an issue of the Micronauts (IMAGE 2003).

Penciler: STEVE KURTH

Inker: BARB SCHULZ (no relation to Charles)

Likely somewhere in the Midwest, happily willing to pay a finder's fee to any 3rd party who points the way:

Still looking eagerly for this one.

Much casting about, kicking of bushes and shaking of trees has revealed no trace so far.

Both penciller Kurth and inker Schulz claim no recollection of where this page might have gone. 

It is therefore reasonable to presume that, (assuming it was correctly returned to one of them), it was sold, gifted, or donated fairly early on. (2003-2004-2005 or so)

Both artists are local to the Midwest, so it's somewhat more likely that the page is somewhere in the Minneapolis/Wisconsin/Chicago area, but a few pages from this series are confirmed to have gone as far afield as either coast, so it isn't beyond imagination that they might be found far from home.

I have checked with Devil's Due executives Josh Blaylock and Mike Norton, as well as writer Dan Jolley.  No joy there.

Look at this page, it just can't be someone's diehard favorite.  While I concede it's possible that the current owner is aware that I'm looking for this page (and for some inexplicable reason isn't coming forward), I think it far more likely that the owner isn't aware of my interest, and the page is stashed and forgotten in a pile 'o stuff.

People, this is a page that would have set you back (in 2004) fifty bucks If it was in an art auction, it probably would have been less.

I'm still offering  ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS for this page.  I'll pay a finder's fee to anyone who points me in the right direction.

Put me out of my misery, please!

If anyone can verify if this 11 X 17 card art piece was published, I would appreciate it.  I did quite a bit of searching, and came up empty.

But, I got it anyway just for the image.

Signed John Lucas.

Thanos vs. Champion Of The Universe.

AND...I just got it in the mail (thanks, Donna!) and it does not disappoint.  It has a heretofore undisclosed "MONSTERHANDSLUCAS@YAHOO.COM"

inscription on the reverse, if that helps date this piece.  Any help appreciated.

AND further update I sent John Lucas a message with an inquiry about the piece.  Great to see he is active in the marketplace, not easy for an artist.

MONSTERHANDS is a character he created and is looking for an outlet, apparently.  Seems like a good one!

inscription on the reverse, if that helps date this piece.  Any help appreciated.

The light coloring around the force field is whiteout carefully airbrushed, or cleverly toothbrushed accents.

Thanks for looking, comments welcome, David S. Albright

Think that would be me, I sold Gambit early on and War Machine a few months ago, I have other Marvel Masterpieces paintings left and will have more in hand and for sale on CAF soon.

Be really careful with Hawbaker - one of my worst commission experiences ever and I had to write another PRO to get Hawbaker to deliver -- he has outstanding commissions for over 10 years so I would NEVER EVER commission him to do anything.  Nor would I buy anything from him unless the item was handed over at the very moment I paid the cash.  I would rate Hawbaker's ability to deliver on time as a F.  To deliver ever is probably also an F.

I'm looking everywhere for comic strip artwork by Ray Moore. He was an artist who drew The Phantom between 1936-1947.

There are no more than 20 examples of his art (Sundays and dailies) that I know exist. 

If you know anything about the whereabouts of any of his artwork not posted on the internet, or you have traded in or have photos of Ray Moore Phantom OA, please contact me. 

Ultimately, if you are in the possession of Ray Moore artwork which you are willing to sell, I am offering high prices for high-quality examples.  

Here are some images of his artwork:
