I'll play.

The Mighty Thor 219 page 17

I love the Sif and Silas Grant panels.

 

Alan Davis (own 2 pages)

I have 2 pages from the first 3 issues of Excalibur so this one is tougher. I went with this one because I used to look at in Gary Land's gallery dozens of times a year until I finally owned it. 

Excalibur 1 page 24

George Perez (own 8 pages)

Brave and the Bold Trade Paperback Cover

Jim Lee (own 2 pages)

Superman Unchained 4 pages 16-17

I love that page with Meggan surprising Kurt in the bath, I laugh every time. Perfect example of the humor I love from the series. Congrats!!!

I've got lots of Sean Murphy - of my 17 pieces in my collection,  ten are SGM... This is still thrilling to look at and makes my brain happyHeHT0HA71rbCyPM4M5t68A73.thumb.jpg.5deaaff8bf620c8d59082ac304248e4e.jpg

First, I'd keep this page from my Evan Dorkin Eltingville pages I've got. Tough to pass up this Kirby homage in a book about toxic fandom.

Second, I have a couple pages from Dale Eaglesham's run on Hickman's early Fantastic Four (which is Solve Everything might be my second favorite FF arc ever). The Multiverse Council of Reed Richards is the obvious choice, with Dale's crazy tight pencils and no inks. Mounts colored all of the pages digitally direct from the pencils.

Last but not least, another Hickman series, Secret Warriors. It's a tough call since Alessandro's Vitti's stuff on the series was incredible, but I'd go with Nick Fury finally putting one in Baron Strucker's head after all these years.

In your collection, of artists which you have multiple pieces of artwork and are you favorites. What single piece of artwork would you pick if you could only keep one example by that artist. You can choose more than one artist, just have to have multiple examples in your collection.

I would choose three artists who I have been collecting for years and are some of my favorite artists.

 

John Buscema (Own over 100 pieces)

Silver Surfer #14 page 3. The top image has been burned into my brain since I first read the issue when I was a kid.

Hard to beat the Peanuts Sunday... it’s a good one, very funny!

I really like the Byrne Black Panther cover, do you know who the inker was?

Reynold Brown BEHIND THE HIGH WALL (1956) movie poster painting.  Not necessarily my best Reynold Brown painting, but I'm a Film Noir fan and this one fits the bill for me.

Steve Ditko AMAZING SPIDER-MAN # 32 splash.  Content is far from ideal, but Ditko Spidey splashes are very thin on the ground and this one was affordable - so I'm happy.

Tom Chantrell THE 300 SPARTANS (1962) movie poster painting.  Frank Miller was a fan of the movie and would later revisit this childhood love.

Favorite Bagley, Ron Lim, Alan Davis, and Coipel pages.

 

It's hard! The Lim & Coipel are newest but I love all their work.
