A few choice pages from Detective Comics #1 (New 52) - Art by the amazing Tony S Daniel
Origin of Two-Face from Detective Comics #66 (1942)
'Crazy Toys' Last Stand Wolverine. £30 from eBay. Amazing
Here is my newest addition - Wolverine #1 CGC SS 9.2 signed by Chris Claremont, Herb Trimpe and John Romita Sr.
It’s taken me a long time to find one of these without Stan Lee’s signature. As much as I love Stan, he had absolutely nothing to do with the character but the majority of SS books for sale have his signature scrawled over them. Very odd!
This book is pretty much perfect. The writer of the series, the original artist from the character’s debut (Incredible Hulk #180-181) and the artist who originally designed him all one one cover.
It’s little known fact that Romita designed the look of Wolverine which can be seen from his original sketches above. Trimpe then took these designs and brought them to life for his first appearance
I’m really pleased with this one. Wolverine is up there with Cap as being my favourite Marvel character so to have those responsible for creating him on a signed book is a big deal. All I need now is to get Len Wein added and I can officially retire this one
New commission: recreation of Jack Kirby and (I assume) Don Heck’s cover art to Tales Of Suspense #80. Some of the linework reminded me of Giacoia, so I tried to play that up a bit. I also tried to get a little more Sinnott with the energy lines. So, you get a nice mashup of Heck, Giacoia, Sinnott, and as little McCorkindale as possible. :-)
