Those are fantastic, and I wish they were a little closer by just having attached stats for the feeling.  David

 

Actually, Bruce gives customers the option of having recreated logos and captioned materials done by way of paste-ups (I guess, to make the illusion look even more realistic).  I thought about that option but decided flawless recreations without the need for paste-ups was fine for my needs.

Here's an example (upcoming HA) by Sprang who chose to avoid lettering and cover dress.

Highly likely that it was the original commissioner of the work who chose not to have the logo, lettering etc drawn rather than Sprang himself...

I don’t expect that Spider-Man recreation to sell unless there is no reserve. It was listed on Romitaman for a very long time at a similar price as the auction estimate.

This was brought up elsewhere but so know I’m not the only one who is not impressed with the description of the Raiders of the Lost Ark Atari art. It’s described as “Exhibiting Minor Age”, meanwhile there is significant sun damage with the Blues in the piece wiped clean by the Wrath of God.

Yep.   If I bid tens of thousands on that and later figured out half the color was missing, I'd be some pizzed.
