Justice League Of America #100 Batman page #4 1972 Comic Art

Dillin and Giella.  From JLA #100, Metamorpho appears.  David

Dillin is my Sal.

Now, how, exactly did Batman land that punch and kick with any power and without falling down?

This page would be nice, or anything from this issue UXM 267 would be just super.

Apart from a few very specific pages that carry a very strong emotional value for me (for example, Hulk 206 and 207 splashes with the Defenders by dream team Buscema Staton or Defenders 50 DPS by Giffen):

- A killer Kirby (ideally Kirby Sinnott)

- A strong interior by Perez from his '70s run on the Avengers (ideally Marcos inks)

- An interior by Starlin from '70s Captain Marvel or Warlock

- A Silvestri cover from his X-Men run from the '80s

Perez Avengers is particularly difficult as his stuff from that run seems to be quite concentrated in some collections...

Actually this calendar year I filled the one major and last several minor holes in my collection. Thought I had them all filled, but actually there is one thing I don't have that I still want:

A good silver age Infantino Flash page with Flash in costume fighting either Reverse Flash, Mirror Master, or Captain Cold.

This bring up a good point for me. Some holes are never fully filled. For me, this is Sal Buscema, Keown, McGuinness, Pelletier, etc. Even when I add a great piece, I still want more examples from different arcs, etc. 

I was able to add a great page from an arc this year (Subby 34) which will keep me happy from that specific arc but not for the artist. 

Happy hunting!

I used to own that page. I bought it from Jim Lee at Wonder Con 1990 for $125, he even drew me a Wolverine head on it. I sold it about a dozen years back to a collector in Europe.

Aye Caramba! Thanks for the update. And yes indeed, if the buyer is open to communication I’d love an introduction. I’ll even adjust for inflation...

A Ditko ASM page.  I actually owned two interior pages at one time but later traded away one and sold the other to help raise funds for an expensive purchase.  I should have kept one of those pages and have deeply regretted it ever since.  Maybe one day I'll get to rectify my own stupidity . . . :wishluck:

A lot of my wants are basically to pieces I sold like Sienks Moon Knight and John Buscema. Would love to add a A+ panel page or cover of  early Darkhawk by Manley and Marvel Fanfare pin-ups when I can afford it. Was finally able to add a Spidey page to my collection this year at least.
