I should have been more specific - I'd like to get a page from every one of JB's first 30 issues (232-262).

So far, I have a page from issues 242, 244, 247, 248, 250, 251, and 260. I have a page from 236 on the way. My page 251 purchase has made me realize that certain pages / issues are probably scattered in the wind. And I know there are certain issues that are entirely in other collectors hands (I'm pretty sure someone has most of 235 and 245). I've never seen or heard of a page from 249 or 259. I'm realizing that some of these pages are just in private / off-line collections, so I can't even attempt to throw money at the current caretaker.

But it's a long term goal!

Anyhow, that's a great Ron Frenz Spider-Man!

I believe the Black Panther issue 241 is still complete. FF 233 was broken up a few years back those pages seem to pop up from time to time.

Frenz is a big time favorite of mine. His THOR run is
criminally overlooked. My next new art posting is proof
of my love for the series. Stay tuned...

So, speaking of my next art posting:





THOR #400, page 21 by Ron Frenz and Joe Sinnott. This
comic was one of the most memorable of my early years
reading comics. Thrilled to own a page from this issue.
Seth was such a great villain during this storyline.

And now for the obscure. Shiny nickel to the one that can identify all characters in this commission by the elusive MC Wyman who I believe is a pseudonym used by several artist, correct me if I am wrong and if you have met him.

How did you get a commission from a name many artists use as a pseudonym?

Exactly

I got it second hand from a guy that never met the artist. Just a correspondence through a generic email. Would have never thought to get this commission done until I came across it and had to nab it.

I have not been posting in this thread for some time.
Not new, but being able to acquire these 3 sequential
pages made me a bit giddy. The kid in me is very much
alive, when looking at them.

Andrew, I need all the nickels I can get.

Those characters are the Blue Blade, the Witness, Mister E, the Laughing Mask, and the Phantom Reporter, golden age heroes revived by J. Michael Straczynski and Chris Weston for their Marvel series The Twelve.

Fred, I can see why you'd be so happy. I'd be over the moon.

same person?

Was lucky enough to have won this on Comiclink last week. 11x17 Full body Punisher illustration by John Romita, which was drawn for his Grandson many years ago. With the help of others, I was able to confirm the authenticity of this piece, and the story behind it.

Wilson, the same owner, who acquired them individually over the past
decade. Iíve bought them from him, over the past 7 years, as heís had
opportunities to pick up other sought after pieces and decided it helpful
to finance them, by selling each of these.

Dan Hubbarde, that's a very nice piece from Romita. It's kind of sad, though, that a personalized drawing to his grandchild was not kept in the family.

Thanks Matt, and yes it was too bad that he sold his collection of art from both the Romitas. There is a long story behind it but to sum things up, Matt hasnít spoken to them in many years.

Toronto Comic Con was a success! The latest addition to my Fantastic Four Jam I started with Byrneís sketches, Mike Zeck pencilled Dr Doom and John Beatty inked it. More additions to come in the future! Mike and John were thrilled to work with Byrne. For the remaining characters, I have Art Adams, Joe Sinnott, and Walter Simonson in mind.

Reed Richards - John Byrne
Dr Doom - Zeck/Beatty

Thing (partially completed) - John Byrne

Sorry for the poor quality photo, had to reduce the resolution ALOT.

Stunningly powerful image of Batman in action. Floored
and moved, every time that I look at it.

I've been extremely fortunate in gathering several
pages from this book. This doesn't have the powerful
fluidity that the Batman/Hulk fight pages have, nor
does it have the heavy beautiful storytelling that
propels the tale forward, but it has all of the raw,
yet majestic feel that Jose's action pieces
contain...... plus it transforms me into an excited
child all over again.

Garcia-Lopez and Giordano produced magic, with this
book.
