While I do have some really nice pieces I don't own any 2000AD art. The ultimate catch as far as I'm concerned has got to be the Judge Dredd vs. Judge Fear "GAZE INTO THE FIST OF DREDD!" If I remember correctly, Brian Bolland held on to that page. Can anyone confirm?

I think that would be the ultimate catch for most 2000ad comic art collectors. Heck, comic art collectors full stop.
Id imagine it would also come with one hell of a price tag should it ever turn up.
Not sure who has it now. Brian held onto a few pages from this story, but put them up for sale (i think all went as well) the other year. The "gaze" page wasnt amongst them though.
If i understand right he sell his art via Joe Melchior - http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryDetail.asp?GCat=9492

That'd be the one I'd choose if I could only choose one.
Or the double page from Death Lives.
...because I hate you.

Very cool! I had no idea he was selling those so recently. And two of them are still available! Well out of price range for most people though I suspect.

The last Judge Death Lives page I heard about (sold through Joe Melchior) was $15,000... That was a couple of years back, so they've probably gone up since then.  Having said that, I think a page (Peanut Park sequence) went on eBay for 'just' $4k last year, so not everyone (me included) is prepared to pay silly money, even for classic Bolland.

Nice!  I've seen that kicking around for a while; good to see it get scooped up.

Meanwhile, I scanned the Frazer Death cover, and it looks insanely good first-hand...(If I could have just edited the previous post about this, I would have.)

A simply stunning bit o' art, David. One to treasure that, and nice to see that Ron Smith Dredd colour piece as well, good stuff!
