Oh man.  Talk about a buzz kill.  Wonder where the actual art is and what sort of condition it's in? I'm sure the stat was originally created to reposition/resize the art.

Underneath ? I don’t know it, but could be, right ?

I wonder if this page will get any interest.  I have heard there are a few oddball collectors out there that think it is kind of cool.

Bah!  Those new X-Men are just a fad!

Holy $&!+   (worship)   Sky's the limit I say.

Seeing this amazing piece, it clearly inspired the Marvel Team-up Ann 1 splash published the following year... Wolverine-Storm-Nighcrawler-Banshee positioned in same four corners with Cyclops and Phoenix replacing Apache and Sunfire, plus that spidey fellow.

Yeah, but with the Sal B artwork, I think this page will go for 100X whatever that GSX page goes for.

It's always one of the usual suspects.  Usually the most usual of the usual suspects. hm 

Any chance the usual suspects have lost their shirts in the MARKET CRASH?

The only one of those new-fangled X-Men that has any potential is that Thunderbird character!  I see him becoming a big star and having lots of spin-off titles and solo movies!

LOL I never thought of it that way, but Marvel was trying to branch out after I assume all original X-men were white Americans.

New X-men were African, Canadian, native American, Russian, German, Japanese, Scottish.

At least 4/7 made the cut and were popular.

Got an interesting email from Heritage today. This snip from the email interested me the most - “Despite all obstacles, Heritage will strive to further widen the gap in Online convenience and service to our clients. We have taken in over $80 million in consignments and advanced or lent our clients over $30 million during the past 2 weeks, often with minimal advance notice. Just a few days ago, even as the financial panic escalated, our long-time primary lender (Wells Fargo) seamlessly increased our credit facility from $50 million to $75 million, so we have plenty of additional availability for cash advances to help our consignors in need of immediate funds.”

80 million in consignments ? Guessing not all art and comics but it seems that it’s beyond what they are used too.

Anyone else get this?

If I did I didn't pay attention to it, but 80m in consignments in two weeks has got to be about double the normal volume.   If they sell 1b worth of material a year as I've seen mentioned, a typical two week period should be around 40m
