I once emailed his FB page and received a response within 24 hours.  You could give that a try.  It goes without saying, but despite the crappy situation you're in, it's best to be respectful with your message since I think it's actually Artgerm who's managing the account and not some PR rep.  Best of luck.

I will be...thanks for the advice. It’s only 23.00 and I’m sure it’s just a mistake. Will try Facebook.

I've often wondered what some original art from these artists cost, but it's probably more than some books that I might rather have lol

Thanks for posting! It looks great!

Not mine, just from his website : )  Only got the Vampirella OA from the previous page or two, after selling a piece to a good boardie -- you're right about the cost, and they def trend up over time!

that's honestly better than any of his cover art which I find all too anime-ish after a while.  I would be very interested in buying a charcoal piece like that.  that's simply superb.

I've found he can do pretty much anything he wants, in any medium.

I’ve been passing all his Catwoman covers...... I don’t know. Even his Captain Marvel seems mediocre to me.....

I really like his Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Harley. 

I think it’s his dark background, that throwing me off.

His Catwoman #4 is probably one of his best covers imo.

I mean, I like that cover.  But i'm not willing to spend $120 to get it.  Between his and JSC's prices, I just feel like these artists are growing more out of touch with the fans.  Sure, the books sell out, but it's increasingly feeling like something specific for high end collectors.

It's expensive, but not quite that bad.  $60 for a set of 2, so $30 each.

I must have missed that.  I only saw the set of 3 (trade cover/retro/virgin) for $120.  Didn't see a set with only 2 covers.

Just the two trade dress. No virgin. Too much:eek:

Plus the "cream of the crop" artists have to take into account the secondary market.  It's not logical for them to sell at a low price point, given a limited supply, only to see issues rocket up in price on ebay due to high demand.

Just like any regular artist, they deserve to decide the price for their work... rationally.
