I love that Tharg cover. There's been an Eric Bradbury Tharg page over at eBay for a while now tempting me  but I've been good. I'd love to own a good Tharg piece. I do have a wonderful picture PJ Holden did for me which guards my 2000ad collection, but I mean a printed one.

What was it that Oscar Wilde said about temptation?

"Those that resist temptation with ease and good grace obviously never started collecting 2000AD artwork."

I think that's the one you had in mind.

 :)

I'd love a good Tharg page as well, but for now I'll settle for a pasted-on Ezquerra Green Bonce at the end of a Redondo Future Shock page I have.

Anyway, I'm definitely slowing down these days (I've said that before).

Glorious!  Insanely lovely art by Bolland; any one of those characters would be fantastic, but all three?  Well worth the trade you made, Dale - I think you got the better deal.  I have very fond memories of that Annual (I found a £20 note during a wet walk on a family holiday and that was the first thing I bought - the Annual, not the artwork, unfortunately).

Any chance of a close up on one of the characters on the page Dale? Looks so perfect.

Oh wow. That Bolland cover is, indeed, about as good as it gets. Some close-ups would be great!

Dale, do you have a website where you show off your collection? I'd love to know how many pieces you have and some of the stories behind how you've acquired them.

Also, no-one ever seems to mention how much is generally paid for original artwork - but I've got to ask, because this has to be right up there in Bisley territory (which seem to go for thousands).
