There's a really cool 1976 Marvel splash page up for auction crediting artwork to "The Tribe". I remember something about the great Neal Adams using the pseudonym "The Tribe". Can someone give me more info on this? Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the link;

No, the Tribe was a primarily Filipino group of inkers, not connected with Adams.  Adams inking group was called the Crusty Bunkers.

Any idea how much do the missing word balloons affect the price of OA?

Not much. However much you decide it is worth less to you.
