complete 22 pg color guide for "Choices!" story from Amazing Spider-Man #423; signed by Bob Sharen; COA included
This complete issue color guide by Bob Sharen (coloring pages by Joe Bennett) features our favorite Web-Head battling it out against one of his most dangerous foes, the newly restored Electro, who feels he has the power of a god! This issue sees a Morbius-weakened Spidey defeated and begging for his life from the electrified bad guy after some intense fighting! Also feared prominently are The Rose, Madame Qwa, and Meiko the Dragonfly. Bob Sharen's colors are absolutely stunning as every panel pops off the page!

Prior to the digital era, color guides were used to inform the printer on how to accurately print the colors of the comic book. These are ONE OF A KIND pieces of the production process of each comic book. Although they vary in size, most color guides were normal note-book paper sized photocopies of the comic book's original art, that were provided to the staff colorist, who would hand-color, water-color, or paint the color guides. The work was pain-staking and required a high level of attention to detail, as well as consistency! Often times a coding system of numbers and/or letters was used to indicate specific colors, shades, and information that was vital to ensuring the printer accurately printed the comic's coloration. These are sometimes drawn right onto the color guides themselves, and in some instances the colorists would mark them up on an acetate or rice paper overlay. Color guides are a unique, one-of-a-kind collectible aspect of the production of a comic book, and as such they have historic value, because they provide insight into the studio and artist's vision of how the comic book should appear in print. Often times the color guide colors are more vibrant and richer than the actual printed comic book, since colors often degraded when printed onto the cheap newsprint paper that comics were traditionally printed on. In addition, some of the nuances of shading and color gradation were sometimes more complex than the print house was able to recreate (or cared to take the time and effort to recreate) and so the color guides often have a truer sense of what the comic should look like, than the actual comic book itself.

In today's digital age, color guides are no longer used, and therefore, vintage color guides are garnering more interest from collectors who are looking for a unique piece of a particular comic book's history and production process to own.

Pg. 24; George Perez breakdowns, Dan Green inks & finished art; image size 15" x 10"
Page 24 of Avengers #200 shows Iron Man battling a T-Rex while a biplane flies about in the background, while one may think this scenario is something out of the "Night at the Museum" franchise, issue #200 of the Avengers actually has some wide-ranging implications and controversial content. In the issue Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel has an "immaculate" birth of a boy that gestates for only three days and becomes full grown in a very short time, as this mysterious offspring matures, he toils away at creating a device that is meant to control a flux in the space/time continuum that was caused by his birth. It is soon revealed that the boy is Marcus, the child of Immortus, (aka Kang the Conqueror aka Rama-Tut, rumored to be the next big MCU supervillain) whose presence causes the Avengers to have to battle a bunch of confused foes who appear through time portals; knights, warriors, snakes, and even dinosaurs, hence this thrilling page rendered with great skill by George Perez and Dan Green.

Taken on its own this individual page is a exceptional slice of Avenger action, with Beast, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Iron Man featured in the panels, but when placed into context of the Marvel Universe, a page from this issue may loom large in the MCU before long, so now would be a great time to sneak in there under the radar and grab this piece of Avenger history.

Harvey
VF: 8.0
Lee Elias pencils, inks and signed; image size 11" x 15.5"; comes matted
Black Cat was an early comic book heroine that appeared in the pages of Harvey Comics from the early 40s to the early 50s, guesting in Pocket Comics, Speed Comics, and All-New Comics, Black Cat was rewarded with her own title in 1946. This book went through several permutations, from Black Cat to Black Cat Western Comics to Black Cat Mystery Comics to Mystery Western back to Western and finally settling on Black Cat Mystic, the fiery redhead was subject to the whims of an ever-shifting comic book landscape, even disappearing from her own title at points. This cover to Black Cat Mystery #30 by Lee Elias manages to combine some of the best elements of the title's strange journey into one bizarre piece of art.

Here we have Linda Turner aka Black Cat, backed up to the edge of a cliff by a menagerie of strange creatures, a fish with a human body and tentacles, a giant, angry bird, and what seems to be a praying mantis with a human head are all rapidly closing in on the titular hero, and Lee Elias' superior talents and fertile imagination make it all seem feasible. Fans of Golden Age curiosities are already lining up to bid on this unique piece of comic book history.

Pg. 15; Jack Kirby pencils and signed, Frank Giacoia inks; 10" x 15"
The release of Captain America #200 coincided neatly with America's bicentennial, giving this milestone issue dual importance. The page on offer here features the Falcon in every panel, drawn with the typical panache and skill of Kirby. The action focuses on Sam Wilson racing to prevent the Elite's William Taurey from detonating the Madbomb "Big Daddy," and every corner of the page is chock-full of unmistakably Kirby-esque details, assisted by Frank Giacoia's rich, moody inks. The Falcon is a major player in the MCU, thanks to his inclusion in the Avengers film franchise, and his upcoming show on the Disney+ streaming service. This wonderful page is a perfect display piece for fans of Kirby, the Falcon, and Silver Age Marvel art in general.

Dark Phoenix (Jean Grey), Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, Colossus, and Nightcrawler Cover
Dark Phoenix Saga Part: 7

Feel the rise of the Phoenix Force! Witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational Dark Phoenix as X-Men are blasted every which way. This beautiful illustration, signed by Steve Lightle, expresses how much we truly must fear from this cosmic entity. This cover serves as a powerful reminder that Jean Grey is no more, there is only Phoenix. Every character on the cover tells a story. Nightcrawler looks on in wonder and fear as Cyclops, so close to the blast, could only have been trying to reason with Jean, and he is the one who would always get hurt first, and worst. This dynamic cover from Classic X-Men #41 recreated the pathos that defined this tragic character so beloved by fans everywhere.

Wraparound cover, Joe Kubert pencils and inks; 13.75" x 20.5"
House of Mystery
Very few artists in the history of comics have made as deep an impression on the industry as Joe Kubert, not only has he left behind an enormous body of work that spanned decades, but he also fathered two gifted artists in his sons Andy and Adam, as well as tutoring many young students in his school that would go on to be respected talents as well.

His work in the 1980s showcases the culmination of years of honing one's craft, a deft sense of design, pinpoint control of his medium, and freedom born from years of intense study. This breathtaking wraparound cover for DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest shows the host of the House of Mystery, Cain, sitting astride the titular haunted mansion. Taking a page from Bernie Wrightson's playbook, Kubert weaves a magical spell with this piece, playing with scale and perspective, he creates a loving homage to the long-running frightfest. Fans of Bronze Age DC and second-wave horror comics are doubtless waiting for their chance to land this masterpiece for their personal collection.

Okay, now this is sweet. The page comes framed with an image of Jack "The King" Kirby posing with a pair of young fans, and is signed by a roster of Marvel royalty. From the beloved second FF annual, it features not only a smorgasbord of vintage Thing panels, including our boy Ben handily wrecking a classic car, but also the original FF lineup, PLUS the Fantasticar! Your 10-year-old self wants you to have this precious (and awesome) gift, one that can't help but palpitate the hearts of any true Marvel-ite-iac.

Wouldya look at the hands that this page has passed through over the years -- Neal Adams, Gene Colan, John Buscema, Marie Severin, John Romita, Marv Wolfman, Len Wein, and even Stan "The Man" Lee, all have signed this incredible piece of Marvel history. Original Silver Age comic art can be a solid investment, sure, but it's incredible pieces like this that get the fanboy in any collector all giddy, and transform collectible investments into treasured heirlooms.

Joe Kubert pencils and inks; image size 10" x 15"
If there are two things Joe Kubert is known for drawing (besides soldiers), they are dinosaurs and cavemen so it can be theorized that Joe had a blast while designing this cover which features his favorite subject matter doing battle with fighter jets in this time-travel mashup. Kubert's kinetic style breathes life into the frontispiece for From Beyond the Unknown #12, a pterodactyl dominates the action, as the background explodes with intricate detail, and the missile streaming toward the reader provides the icing on the cake for this awesome early Bronze Age offering from an industry giant.

Frank King pencils and inks; 02/17/25; image size 20" x 5.75"
Gasoline Alley bears the distinction of being the longest-running comic strip currently still in production in the USA, created by Frank King, the classic newspaper strip first appeared nearly 100 years ago in November of 1918 and has been treasured by fans ever since.

This strip was printed in February of 1925 and features a charming domestic scene that shows patriarch Walt Wallet reading a humorous letter, regarding an old rattlesnake, to his adopted son Skeezix. The simplicity of the design of the panels allows viewers to enjoy King's talents without distraction, obviously a skilled draftsman, Gasoline Alley's creator would build a loyal fan base over decades that would watch his characters age along with his readers, by the time WWII rolled around Skeezix would be a young man who enlisted in the armed forces. The familiarity the public would develop with comic strips would be a major factor in the continuing success of the industry.

Greg Hildebrandt mixed media on blackboard and signed; 30" x 20"
Matt Murdock has evolved throughout the Daredevil Netflix series from a man just beginning his mission to a lost soul in search of his path. Not knowing if he should risk opening his heart, and unwilling to give up his fight against Wilson Fisk, Charlie Cox beautifully portrays the complexity of Daredevil's character from start to finish. Greg was awed by this show with its incredible choreography, set design, and storytelling.

Inspired by the graphic nature of the Netflix show, Greg began a new process with his black boards that he calls, "splatter boards."

This piece is made with Acrylic Paint and Colored Pencil on Black Board.

Signed by Greg Hildebrandt.
