Just heard the news :( Rip Earl Norem.

 

Would love to see everybody's books of his.

Sad to hear this...so sad. The man was a giant in comics for decades.

 

His paintings form some of my best nostalgic memories of comics and magazines from the 70's and 80's.

 

I had the chance to meet him and speak to him at Heroes Con in Charlotte a few years ago and get him to sign a bunch of magazines and prints. Nicest man and very appreciative of the attention.

 

Here's a pic of Mr. Norem and Myself (pre-weight loss). He will be missed greatly.

Wow those are great! I'm glad there's people who loved his work as much as myself.

 

Here is one (confused by the grade), will resub it eventually I think, but love it all the same.

RIP

I loved his Conan covers, he was greatly unappreciated IMHO.

Does anybody know if this is the only copy signed by Earl? It says there are 2 9.4 SS on the census but I'm betting those are signed by Stan Lee hm anybody have any to step up?

 

6.5 or not, I still love this one.

Hey Lloyd - I am 90% sure that the other was signed by Lee and Sinnott. I feel like I have seen it in the last year or so. I actually look at books signed by Lee that he worked on. It is a lot of work to find them, though.

 

lol

Yeah, that's probably why I had the scan handy.

 

The rest of mine were in a box I couldn't get to.

lol Great! Thanks Sean. Kind of cool to see that I might have the only book signed by him, regardless of the grade, it's still very cool I think :)
