I wonder who has all the pages to Avengers #7. The list includes it but I have never seen a page from that issue.

AF #15, AMS #1, FF#1 etc. are they locked in collections or are they out there.
The Library of Congress has the AF15 OA It can be seen through appointment.

Thank you for your interest in the collections of the Library of Congress. Yes, we permit individuals and groups to see Steve Ditko's original art for Amazing Fantasy #15. Please let me know if you are only interested in the Spider-man story.

The Prints & Photographs Division is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. I work from 6:30-3:00 and offer appointment times that start between 8:30 and 1:30 (to allow researchers a proper amount of time to view art). I tend to take my holidays in August, and intend to be away from the Library of Congress from Friday August 13, through Friday, August 20, 2010. In addition, I may not work every day the week of August 23 through August 27, but can make myself available.

The Prints and Photographs Division is located in room 339 of the Madison Building of the Library of Congress, 101 Independence Ave., SE, between 1st and 2nd streets. The nearest
Metro station is Capitol South. We are a quick walk across Capitol Hill from Union Station.

You may bring a hand-held camera that can be operated without flash using available light for reference purposes. The drawings are housed under mylar and will not be removed during your appointment.

If you do not already possess a Library of Congress researcher card (available with one form of picture ID that contains your current address, you will need to stop in room 140 and get one before you arrive in the Prints & Photographs Division): < http://www.loc.gov/rr/security/readerreg.html >. Everyone in the group will need one.

I cannot show the comic book to anyone younger than 16. There is no exception to this rule (even my own son is counting the days until he is old enough to see it). There is a Young Reader's Center in the Library, and I suggest it as an alternative arrangement for children.

I look forward to meeting you. Please let me know when in August you intend to visit, and how many people will be in the group.

Sincerely,

Sara W. Duke
Curator, Popular and Applied Graphic Art
Prints and Photographs Division
Library of Congress, Washington, DC 20540-4730





Would love to see that.
Steve Ditko is one of my favorite artists, AF#15 is the most expensive comic I have ever bought and my most expensive page of OA is by Steve Ditko.
I wonder why no kids allowed.
Thanks for that info. \:\)




Any guesses as to what that would bring in an open market?

I think that you could just class this up with any piece of art at auction, it would attract investors and collectors out of the field of comics and break all records for OA as we know it.

I expected the same when the art of X-Men #1 was split in 2008, and this didn't happen.

BTW, X-Men #1 was in Vartanoff's list but Jack didn't receive a single page of it. It was STOLEN in complete form, with a great relief for Marvel's advocates who were scared to death that Jack could use that art to claim rights on the characters co-created by him.

How about pre-1965 DC covers? Me? I'd love to see some of Swan's Adventure Covers from the 60s and earlier stuff as well.

I have an original art page from Fantastic Four #62 and I think it would be very hard to part with it, just in case, especially because I personally met Jack Kirby at his Thousand Oaks home, in 1991.
In fact, I was struck by Jackís uniqueness as a man, by his humility and other virtues, that itís not about "possessing" the piece, but just for what represents.

In fact, I was tempted to tell him I had that page (and I even thought to give it to him, seeing the controversy he had with Marvel over the art) but in the end I did not have the courage. Later, I somehow regretted it, but when he died I thought itís something which helps me remember heís close to meÖ \:\)
