The Frisanos are legends here in France for their works on super-heroes characters. Some of their most wanted OA are really expensive (in the $6000-$7000).

Pages are really scarce, most of the OA are in the hand of less than 15 collectors. And 75% of the collection belong to one famous and wealthy french collector

 

Hello! Who's the famous guy that owns most of the art? Of the hundreds of covers that Jean & Thomas did,now I know the reason why it is never seen on the market! Do you know the history of how the Frisano art was sold? I heard that when LUG returned alot of the art back to Jean in the mid-80's,they advertised the art in France and it was mostly sold like that. I would love to see a book on the art of these guys! Unfortunately,here in America,we missed out on seeing any of their art on our covers back then.I wish I could get images of all the covers they ever did,I'd make a website dedicated to those 2!! Classic stuff!!

Gman, I'm really sorry about grabbing this one from you. No hard feelings I hope. It's one of the prizes of my collection.

Sorry, i don't think i can give you his name. flowerred.gif

I met him once, and his collection is really incredible.

I can just say that one day he met the Frisanos at their home and offered them big $$$ for the whole lot of covers. I mean, really big $$$ blush.gif

 

There is a book printed here in France which contains all the covers done by Jean & Thomas Frisano. There is also this web site (even if the scans are not really big).

I agree with you on the Daredevil page, even without a costume, it's very nice work.

Probably not considered much by you guys' standards, but it's my second piece in two months and only my fourth overall in twenty years. 27_laughing.gif I guess that means I'm an actual OA collector now! insane.gif

 

Late period John Byrne, but I really like this page because it features both Spider-Man and the FF and I could afford it.

Nice page. I saw it on ebay both times it was listed and I would've tried to have won it if it only had lettering on the page.

 

Very nice pick up though.
