There is no good reason for posting this here but...





That innocent drawing of CM by Beck reminded me of another "what if?" CC had been allowed to do more ERB work?

I'm not sure if this looks like what a violent version of Captain Marvel might appear as or what John Carter played by Fred Macmurray would have been.

Wonderful piece though.

Hey Rick,

After all the older collectors are gone, are there new crops of people going to show up to buy collections.

I ask, because I have been dabbling...again...in pre-codes and ,though I like them, when it is time to sell will there be anyone around who will buy them?

I have been in and out of collecting a few times because I wonder if most of the books I buy will end up having to be buried with me because I am not sure the next generation will see value/nostalgia in obtaining the books.

Are there younger generations coming to your store and buying older stuff?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

there is certainly always going to be "collectors"....the real question is how many and for what genre/niche...

precodes are cool and should maintain some semblance of followers for a good bit of time to come, though no collectible is ever "safe"

Truly wonderful piece indeed, always a thrill to view obscure works from the GA master illustrators. Appreciate your sharing this.

Reminds me of a quote when someone asked animator Friz Freleng towards the end of his life if he was always aware of creating high art with his cartoons, Friz replied "High art? ...all we were trying to do was fill six minutes."

If this Joker cover is going for over 4X condition guide even in restored condition, what would it be going for in unrestored condition? hm
