rick, how do you view pre-hero DC's at the moment, and for the future?

How big a factor is the cover artist (Flessel, Sullivan, Guardineer, etc.) for these very tough books?
as we know, the entrance of even 1 or 2 serious collectors for these type books can affect the entire market (positively)...a single exiting collector will typically not affect the market negatively, as there are generally enough seekers to prop up, but if multiple collectors exit, future uncertain ..., at the current moment, the emergence of some new interest, has caused an uptick in demand, and hence prices (I think that was obvious at sdcc this past weeks)

without question much of the appeal has to be the artists (covers as well as their corresponding interior work)... I believe that, along with great scarcity, is a premium determinant of demand


So - and I'm being serious here - prices can surge or stall on a whim? What price Price Guide in this reality?

we've seen what even just a single new collector entering a small niche segment, can do to pricing \(thumbs u

True enough, but how dependable is the Barnum factor? hm

\:o Woah Steve!

I just caught up to Fleisel Who's this Sullivan guy?

[Of course Fred is so passť]


Vin Sullivan, he did a lot of the early DC funny covers - he doesn't really hold a candle to Flessel or Guardineer, but I'm finding his output mildly charming.

Thanks rick - the pre-hero market is definitely niche, but the guys who go all-out (I consider myself just a dabbler) really bring the passion to the table.

The raw, early history of the books is probably the greatest draw for me (along with some of the classics covers too, of course).

that's my biggest draw to centaurs...the history, the evolution of the artists, etc... I like the DC's too...

Centaurs also have the advantage of being pre-Timelys ...Everett, Burgos, Gustavson, Mills, Thompson, Simon, etc.

Love 'em.
