Well the TOS thread was so much fun so why leave the TTA's out. Just picked this up from Namisgr.

9 later in the run Ohios.

 

Had the chance to grab some of the earlier ones, but the price/grade just wasn't right.

Another ASM collector has been corrupted by "other" books.

And now you know why I love Northlands so much. The TTA's are extremely sharp. thumbsup2.gif

 

I have the two Northland issues before that one.

I have the original artwork to the # 98 cover framed and hanging on the wall in front of me - it's awesome!

This is a tremendous cover, so thanks for giving us a peek at the artwork 893applaud-thumb.gif - any chance you could provide a larger view of the terrific cover art?

Absolutely wonderful to see the original artwork. It must be even more spectacular in person.

Hi there

 

Thanks for the interest in the two TTA cover originals. Yes, they're both spectacular in 'the flesh' (each measure approx 20" x 13.5").

 

Larger scans are on view in my CAF Galleries (Comic Art Fans). Here's a link:

There's also a STRANGE TALES cover on display (featuring Dr Strange), along with a broad range of comic-book orginals.

 

Best

 

TERRY DOYLE

VERY NICE covers.........

 

Agreed.

 

Kinda puts a damper on any books, regardless of how old they are and the grade.

 

Maybe the TTA #27 CGC 9.4 could compete, but that would be it.
