I took a look. I think $18,000 is a little bit of a crazy ask for his work.

As much as I love his style, I wouldn't feel comfortable paying that much for the pieces he has listed.

I feel like truthfully he probably doesn't want to part ways with the originals since its his legacy but if someone is willing to pay over 10k for a piece of paper he wont say no

Completely agree.  JSC knows how to ride that supply and demand wave better than just about anyone in the industry, but that is some sticker shock for brand new work.

It'd still be original.  It's not like he's photocopying them.  He's just merely drawing a second copy which would have subtle differences from the first.

It looks like you have the black & white virgin variant. The pencil sketch virgin is the presumed 1:100. There are 5 covers total.

My favorite is the regular colour one with the title on it. The virgin looks empty on top, and I just don't care for b&w versions of colourized books. Which is your favourite?

I completely agree. It looks more like whats its swiping. The others are ok too, but color trade dress is best. (thumbsu

Oh right that's what I meant, the Blank and White VIRGIN variant. Thanks for the correction.

Well after I found out that there was a 1:100 sketch, I would say that would be my favorite as I am a big sucker for anything sketch cover by my favorite artists.

Yeah, the problem with virgins like this is that the cover art was create to accommodate the trade dress, so they look out of whack without it due to the large empty spaces in the layout.

Does anyone know what the breakdown was for the WD #19 Campbell covers other than the 1:100 pencil sketch cover? It seems like the B&W sketch and both virgin variants are plentiful for all covers.

Thanks. Looks like I did close to expected on the 20 copy order of #1 (10 regular, 6 color virgin, 3 B&W, 1 B&W virgin), did one book better than expected with my 20 copy order of #19 (9 regular, 4 B&W, 5 Color Virgin, 2 B&W Virgin), and lucked out with the 5 copies of #7 - two regular, two Color Virgin, one B&W virgin.
