(If there's anything I've learned from my Hicklenton pages is that tipex is okay!)

Not just okay, but compulsory!

I will say this though...it's one of the most expensive pages I've ever bought, and it's something that you lot probably haven't seen before.

To be continued...

Interesting. Very interesting.

That's a familiar looking ship...

Got this Simon Coleby page at the London Comic Mart last month. I'm more of a convention sketch guy and this is my first original art page. I fear I'm on a slippery slope now.

If this is another Hicklenton Nemesis page I've missed out on...  >:(

Love me a nice city-scape and that one is a beaut!

"I am all these things and many more…"

This my dear Ladies & Gentlemen is my current crown jewel....Clint Langleys 'Try out' piece for the Nemesis gig way back in the early 90's. I'm a huge Nemesis fan, and I absolutely adore it.
To my knowledge it hasn't seen the light of day before (unless Dale has posted it previously).

A very big thank you to Dale who I know was very reluctant to let it go. Fortunately for him, a weak Euro means he's probably having a bath in £100 pound notes as I type.

Great piece, Link, and indeed rather Hicklenton-y in its organic nature (though Langley seems to prefer a more snub-beaked take on the Warlock.) Here's another Bad Company piece from me, which features one of my absolute favourite moments from the original series - "What about Thrax? What's his problem?" If I'd been given the free option of owning any page from BC1, this would have made my top 5 easily.

Cheers me ol muckers.

Greg- a superb Bad Company page, and one that seriously struck a chord with me as a kid...that 'casual murder' scene- brilliant.

Chiefy2shoes- that's a brilliant Coleby page. I absolutely love his stuff on the new IDW Year One series. If you have the contact details for the art dealer you purchased that page from I'd appreciate a PM.

And a general / unusual request for you all; I'm looking to purchase a Jim McCarthy 'Bix Barton' page (hey- I liked it!) but literally cannot find any of his stuff anywhere online. Any pointers would be very welcome.

A 'Bix Barton' page would be lovely!

Very nice that Link, so this has never popped up anywhere else before?
Its always nice to got hold of the original art, but nicer still, to get something a bit unusual.
Good stuff!
