That War Mother cover is awesome!

I love it when OA has actual color to it, and really need to snag up a Mack cover at some point in the near future. ANOTHER really good idea might be Mike Choi, who is hand-painting his covers right now. If one of those were to be published by Valiant, the original art would be a whole new level of collecting awesomeness!

Regardless, that Mack cover is a total win! :clap:

Thanks. Yeah, I've had my eye on picking up a Mike Choi piece for a while now. I did notice that his most recent stuff is painted, so adding one of those would be pretty nice.

Gotta try to keep this thread going. :)

I remember seeing this one when it was solicited, and it really jumped out at me.

:o why do I put myself through this every time. SO good.

I am with Steve on this little run of B&W where I prefer that over the colored versions. I go back through to see the XO #50 final page by Giorello every time I check into this thread - pretty sure that might be my favorite pencil ever thus far.

Would love to start on some OA soon - Divinity please!

PS LaRosa is just... on another plane some times. Incredible to have his work here.

Very nice sketch covers. I should really try to set one up myself next year at ECCC.

I finally got around to getting a scan of this cover I picked up a couple weeks ago.

Shadow man #37 cover by the great Bob Hall. Love the Shadowman covers and I probably overpaid for this but when there is only 1 what can you do. Now if could only track down the cover to issue #10

Nice.

If I didn't overpay for stuff my collection would be about half the size that it is. :)

Yup, I've been relentlessly searching for BWS's original cover to Solar Man of the Atom #10! His genius is beyond words as he brilliantly demonstrated the hidden darkness and void that exists inside othe hearts of men. Or at least a close up rendering of a sharp/flat ebony piano key.

Much like yourself, our desire to own iconic and stunning original artwork like what you have acquired is a force of nature. Well done on this fantastic Bob Hall cover!

Thank you.
Indeed. That Solar 10 cover is definitely unique, I would love to see what that looks like in person. I was always curious besides the Solar covers that are on CAF and Solar #3 which the Donnelys' are selling, have any of the others ever made it to market at some point? Its seems there is still a large chunk of Valiant art that's out there somewhere.

I was very happy to add this great painted cover by Felipe Massafera to my collection. You get the entire Shadow Seven in action.

Nice!!!. Really like his work. Always tempted to get a commission but I hear his turnaround time is really long.
Congrats on a great cover.

Yeah, I had heard the same thing, but I will say that once we made the deal he got the art shipped out right away.
