How do you find the Kevin O'Neill page?
I mean there's probably no way i'll ever be able to afford anything but it's nice to dream occasionally!
This is the page I was referring to:

Man that is a fantastic page. While its 'just' an Annual page from a lesser known DC title there's so much Kev O'Neill about it!

Yeah, it's distinctively grotesque! I thought it would go for more, but maybe the title and lack of a big name character counted against it?

I had a nosy on HA.com and Kevin O'Neill prices seem to be all over the place. I really don't understand the pricing of original art.

Speaking of wildly under valued art Patrick Goddard has some more of his insanely cheap art up for grabs at the moment. This time from the lastest Aquila - if you could all just avoid the page I'm considering...

If it had been a Nemesis page (pretty much any O'Neill Nemesis page) the price would have been higher - maybe around the £1k mark?  I suspect you'd be able to pick up some O'Neill's earlier US-based stuff for fairly low prices, while LoEG-related art is going to be much more in demand and therefore have a higher price tag attached.  Not that I know much about O'Neill art prices, having only the cover I got when he sold some pieces through a gallery some years back and the 'Search for Excessus' page that popped up through a third party on Artdroids.

I really don't understand the pricing of original art.

Nobody does.  It's all over the place and you can put whatever price you like on something if you're selling but that doesn't mean anybody's necessarily going to pay it.  'Value' of art is entirely subjective; people can and do pay huge sums for stuff simply because it means a lot to them.

Picked up a couple of Noam Chimpsky pages from the ever lovely PJ Holden - first up one of my favourite Dredd page without Dredd.

And second one from PJ featuring Chimpsky - cover to 2178 - I love these two. Together they really give a sense of Chimpsky and his place in the city.

You did well to get that cover. Think that is a definite contender for cover of the year.

Thanks to the lovely Wiggz - who hangs around here. I managed to grab a couple of Henry Flint pages when he offered to help sort folks out with Proteus Vex pages - first up one from that series.

I've loved the concept of the pilot and so this was my first choice from that series - though might go back for one with the space ship in as well if I get greedy!

Next one supplied by the wonderful wizard that's Wiggz. Think this just about qualifies for this thread rather than the none 2000ad one.

I adored Hell Machine on the recent Action Special and asked after this page when buying the Proteus Vex page and was delighted when Wiggz (and Henry of course) came up trumps.

Nice stuff Colin.

Always welcome to see new stuff on this thread, even if it's personally a hobby that has cooled off significantly.
