For a while there, Marvel made some miraculous matchups of title and artist.

Colan and Dracula is one of those -- perfect for each other. The fact that Colan stayed on the title for its entire run suggests it wasn't lost on anyone how well they went together.

Colan's pencils are gorgeous.  I actually enjoy them more than inked work.

A couple of Video/DVD cover pieces from Bill Morrison whom I met at a local Comic Con.
Side note, this was my first comic convention since the late seventies. Good to start small, only about 30 people max while I was there.

I am told this is the only work in oil Mr. Byrne has done. No idea if the tale my stepfather told me is true.

Not oil, acrylic. And not the only one. Sorry.

Some fortuitous antiquing yesterday netted the original to this, black and white, ink on paper, about 10x15 inches. Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson.

Checking online, I found what Carmine's pencils actually looked like!!

YOIKS!!!

Story behind this:

As many of you know I used to frequent United Housewrecking, a huge antique/consignment store in Stamford. They closed down a while back, and one of the owners relocated to a storefront downtown. I've stopped in a few times since I discovered the place.

I wandered in yesterday, discovering to some degree of disappointment that they've switched over almost entirely to patio furniture, all new.

Andy, the owner, was showing me some of their other goodies, and in his office in the back of the store he had a stained glass window he thought I might like. This piece was leaning against the front of his desk.

I immediately texted Jim Warden, my art dealer, to get his best guess for a price, and when I offered that to Andy, he took it. More than he'd paid, apparently.

This is not really a favorite vintage for Batman, but it does have historical significance, so it fits one of my three requirements for buying original art:

Special to me

Significant to the industry

Both
