Now where have I seen page 57 from?
Didn't someone from the threeA boards own that?

Can't recall. Gah!

Previously posted on page three of this thread, Paul.  Not popped up on the 3A board (I checked, just for the sake of your sanity).

Ah yeah, I posted a pic of page 57 a good while ago, apologies for any confusion. Just thought I'd put them all in one post together :)

Just for posterity sake, that page also came from the same stall in Canterbury. So all of these pages went from John's dad -> the two sellers I bought them from and that's it.

I dug out my Best of 2000AD from 94 which had the whole story printed in it. Pages 57 and 58 are side by side, kind of made me want to get the two of them framed like that together! :)

A quick question for the users on this thread; as a neo-novice collector of original art / sketches / art prints etc. I was wondering if any of you could recommend a decent folio / folder for holding the art in?
Ebay has resulted in bupkiss.
Would help if the supplier is located in Eire, as postage fees are extortionate these days!
Cheers.

I frame mine and hang them on the wall so I can see them! Why would you want to hide them away?

I got an A1 jobby as I have a habit of buying art without asking the size lol.
Theres some nice fake leather looking ones out there. Spend good money on the wallets as the last thing you want is for the image to transfer. Forget the material now. Ming will know as he was looking into it.

Anyway I got a job lot deal from an ebayer on the outside. I'll try to find out.

Mylar, thats the name of the wallets!

Hello,
I'm not 100% sure if this is the correct place to post this , but it seems the most obvious. My apologies if I erred.
I'll be at the Thoughtbubble festival next weekend, as I'm hoping many of you will. I'll be at table #172 in the New Dock Hall. Come and say hi.
I'll be trying to sell a lot of artwork that I will have brought with me across the Atlantic. Among witch will be 2 Nikolai Dante splash pages and 2 covers. I don't sell many covers or splashes , so this is a bit exceptional. I've been putting them up on my blog, so you can see what's on offer.

That's it , go about your business.

Simon.

A quick question for the users on this thread

I buy my folders from Staples - there not too dear, and are very strudy. They come in all sizes, catering for 2000ad (older) interior page to DPS sizes, but not sure if they have branches over in the Republic?


Why would you want to hide them away?

Hope your slapping plenty of Sun cream on 'em first,  ;)

Just checked- there is indeed a Staples.ie, although I must confess I've never heard of them before.
Will have a browse.
Cheers JJ.
