listened to the podcast.  agree with most of what was said with the exception on frazetta.  I think his art touched different fandoms and has a broader appeal than just to the comic art crowd which should support his prices. 

RE: the Quality vs Nostalgia debate. I think in the long, long, run quality will win out. How many collectors ever even heard of Carol Day let alone read or thought to collect the original art from that strip. A lot of people into Carol Day art are NOT buying it for nostalgia reasons. They just really appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry of it. These are almost entirely mature collectors.

First, there are not a lot of people buying Carol Day strips.

Second, no one is buying them for direct nostalgia reasons anymore. 

That is why they sell for chump change as beautiful as they are.

Earlier this year, I got an unexpected e-mail from the artist, Stephen Bissette. Especially surprising since we had never communicated before. He was reaching out to me because he had gotten my contact e-mail from John Totleben. Now John Totleben was someone with whom I HAD exchanged e-mails in the past...over 10 years ago! At the time, he maintained his own website, and had some beautiful art that he was selling on it (those of you around back then will remember). Except that by the time I had contacted him, he had decided to keep the pages that I wanted. No problem, I wished him well and didn't bother him about it again.

Well, incredibly, Totleben hung onto my e-mail. So when Bissette asked him if he knew any serious collectors he could approach about a SWAMP THING page he had kept all these years, Totleben passed mine along as someone who wouldn't give him too much grief!

Here's the page, #19 from arguably the greatest single issue of all-time, THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #21. Alan Moore, Stephen Bissette, and John Totleben's game-changing "The Anatomy Lesson". Many thanks to Stephen Bissette (and to John Totleben for, fittingly, providing the crucial assist!).

Stop dilly-dallying around with emails like that and get back to cranking out podcasts. Sheesh. Your wasting time acquiring this page does me no good.

Another great podcast, Chuck is always a great person to talk with. Love hearing the history of him getting all the Punisher covers/posters back together. Though its always painful to hear the original prices on some of those covers sold back in the 80s. Being on the west coast, access to artists was very limiting.

Even though I live in California, I did get to attend one of Chuck's Cherry Blossom Spectacular back in 2011. I was back in DC on vacation and just happen to be there during the Cherry Blossom. It was alot of fun got to meet a number of collectors who usually don't get to come out to the west coast. Plus got to meet Mike Vosburg, he didn't bring much artwork but I got a chance to talk with him. On his website was a fantastic Avengers painting (Steed and Emma Peel) which I loved. Asked about it and he said he still has it. Was able to do a deal for that and he would do an iPod commission for me. Also learned we are both BIG Hitchcock fans.

Never was able to goto another Cherry Blossom Spectacular but have had the pleasure of being at Chuck's get togethers before SDCC and the first LA Ultimate show. All were alot of fun, looking forward to this year's.

Here is the Avengers piece.

The only problem with you updating this thread is that it reminds me of how much I like that ST21 page you got.   Just awesome

From episode 36, wouldn’t a contender of highest marvel piece of art be the Captain Amrica Comics #1 cover from the golden age?
