Super cool piece of art. Well done. Definitely worth keeping if you do not need to flip it! It will definitely increase in value.

Picked this one up recently for what I consider to be a steal....

This is a great grab for me. I loved, loved, loved Mike Ryan's work on Iron Man vol 3. And at the time the introduction of Temugin - the Mandarin's son was actually met with applause as a great way to get the Mandarin back onto the page and into relevancy. I remember reading this book the Wednesday it came out and I loved this confrontation. And although I've cobbled together some other examples of Ryan's work on Iron Man vol 3, I never imagined I'd come across these two pages on the market.

I've managed to grab a number of pieces of original art over this last year or so, but this 2-page splash is going to have a special place in my PC very likely for some time.

:thumb: I know how much you like Iron Man!

CGC has been posting some fans rooms on its FB page. It’s really fun to see other people’s collections. And how they live with them.

Thank you, brother....

I'll have to check out the thread there. Nowadays the majority of my stuff is in one of two configurations - kept on a uniform and modular display in my photography "studio" for this "Wave 1 Collectibles" thing I'm doing; or otherwise I have a storage unit I rented that could practically be a brick and mortal comic store at this point. :lol:

I've gotten away from the "basement collection" or the "spare bedroom collection". My thing nowadays is to keep displays modular and rotate items instead of trying to display as much as possible.
