Like the original page? It’s currently available on eBay for $325. Too rich for my blood, but hopefully the piece will find a good home with a Match-head.

My thanks to Eric Sellers for the heads-up on this art work! Thanks, Eric!

Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!

    Great page….but $325 for a page that doesn’t even have Firestorm in it…OUCH!!!

    I do love how all of the old art pages have the word balloons on them, I miss that!

    $325.00 isn’t bad for a vintage Perez page, which is why it’ll surely sell for more before the 13 days are out. Personally, I have no real interest in published sequential art, and even covers/pin-ups have a limited appeal. I commission stuff I want to exist in the world from people who can manifest it far better than I ever could. Truth to tell, I’m not even particularly concerned about keeping most of them in my possession once that conception has been acknowledged through publication. I just love providing the motivation to bring the art into existence. This already exists, and I can get a color copy of the entire story for $1.49 in another current option. I guess I’m to art collecting as Chester Brown is to romantic relationships. My brain just doesn’t compute the compulsion to own this stuff.
