The Felix Comic Art Podcast is back to our monthly schedule for May 2019!

And it's a big month for our hobby as Frank Frazetta's "Egyptian Queen" is up for auction at Heritage, and is expected to set new records for comic/fantasy art. So the time is right to welcome Frank Frazetta's former art rep, Dr. Stephen Ferzoco, to the show!

Steve and I talk about "Egyptian Queen" (including Steve's prediction for the hammer price), Frazetta's market, and his legacy. And more. A lot more. Frazetta fans, especially, enjoy!

It was a great podcast, Felix. I could’ve listened to another hour. I hope all is well with your family now.

Gotta love podcast drop day! Listened to it twice already, another great one. From these podcasts, it seems that there are a lot of good guys in the hobby, thanks to Felix for introducing us to them.

On that note, this weekend I went down to Fan Expo in Dallas to see my art hero John Byrne. While there I had to the opportunity to chat for quite a while with Albert Moy and to a lesser extent Scott Williams (because of his long lines), both were supper nice and they shared a few fun stories. Add them to Gene Park and Dan Pottick (brief conversations at Comic Art Con NJ 2 years back, brief because of there was SO much art to see) and I have to say all were a treat to talk with and wouldn't have met any of them if it wasn't for Felix... thanks!

No need. Just be ready with $80k to spend in the next twelve months...one or more will pop up somewhere.

They always do. Now.

Sold for 50K.

An outrageous sum back in the day.

Great episode, Felix.  I always enjoy hearing stories from  the old timers in this hobby.

The discovery of Hulk 181 is exciting.  Can't wait to get more details for that.

All you have to know is that it turned up and sold for more than any piece of Magic:The Gathering or videogame art ever will.

I have a maybe delicate question about the recent podcast.  In the interview the two people were referring to their age range (as in people at their age) but there was no context to what their ages actually were.  It was assumed that the listener would know how old they might be.  If the doctor had the DKR art and sold it to pay for medical school, then should we assume they were now both in their mid 50s?

Late 40s/early 50s

Wow then they are pretty accomplished to have collected so much art at such a young age, and for the doctor to have been Frank Frazetta's business agent.  

Why was the Hulk 181 sold privately and not at Heritage?  I would think Heritage might have brought out more bidders.

Wow a little salty are we?  🤣 I love that six and seven figure game art sales pizz you off this degree 😝   And never say never.  After all the three certainties in a day are that the sun will rise, the sun will set, and Gene will make an incorrect prediction about collectibles :baiting: love ya :p;) :kidaround:

No salt, just taking the pizz (and succeeding at it, I see!) lol :baiting: 

I don't even know if the Hulk #181 has sold or not, let alone at what price. (shrug)

I know you well enough to know you're little annoyed about it ;) 

I was wondering about the price/ whether sold.   You made it sound like it was a done deal, but I guess not!
