A friend of mine was offered this art from a fella in Australia going by name of Ardath Bey.

He was told the Steranko/Buckler art was valued at $20,000.

Thing is I knew id seen the Steranko Cap piece before, and sure enough its in the collection of Jim Warden.

Is this the work of Richard Rae ?

Whats the chance of this being legit ?

 

 

heres the art being offered, and the art from Jim's collection

Ardath Bey? As in, the Boris Karloff character from The Mummy?

 

Seriously?

 

Probably shouldn't pull the trigger on this one.

Highly suspect piece(s) offered by a seller using an obvious pseudonym.

Chances of it being legitimate?

Likely less than zero.

Richard Rae had those pieces and is in Australia- I am sure that is not a coincidence.... the Steranko/Buckler is light boxed- if you search the archives here, you can see the whole glorious conversation about it, lol..............

If your friend passes on these pieces please pass along Mr. Bey's contact info. I believe my friend

Doctor Van Helsing would be very interested and being a doctor has funds readily available.

Well to be fair, technically this is the zombie version of Richard as I believe he claimed he died several years ago.

How about, "This is the late Richard Rae, R.I.P."?

Here's where he "died" in 2012.

The Royer looks authentic, meaning authentically light boxed by Mike, not touched by Jack.

Everything about this guy is "fake". "Fake" art; "fake" death; "fake" names. It's all "fake". Everything about him is "fake" except unfortunately for his scams.

Was he able to bite or scratch you? If so you are likely infected and already turning.

:-) We started talking via a comic art based forum on Facebook. Once he reveled to me his name I ended our conversations.
