Here’s the splash page to the GREYSHIRT tale in Tomorrow Stories #5. Script by Alan Moore, pencils and inks by me and lettering (on the board) by Todd Klein. The musical notes in the gutters were pasted up by Todd and are in perfect condition as is the whole piece. I normally get $300 for a GREYSHIRT splash like this but for Retro Week I’m willing to take $275. E-mail me if you are interested.

This is the last splash page I have from the Tomorrow Stories GREYSHIRT stuff. This is from the crossover with COBWEB and appeared in issue #12.

I’m going to put up a bunch of original art pages for sale this week, with the theme being “retro”. Being known as the “retro artist” can be a bit of a pain sometimes because I work in lots of other styles and don’t like being pigeonholed. But at the same time, I love doing it and have been fortunate enough to have collaborated on quite a few faux-silver age stories with Alan Moore. Here’s the first page I’m offering:
This is one of the last pages I have from 1963: MYSTERY INCORPORATED. It’s story page 13 with script by Alan Moore, pencils by me, inks by Dave Gibbons and lettering (on the board) by Don Simpson. It’s in perfect condition and I’d normally ask $275 for it. But for Retro In Regalia week its only $250 plus shipping and insurance. Shoot me an e-mail if you’d like to make it yours.
Here’s a DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD from Tomorrow Stories #5 which I’ve just added to the Original Art Gallery. Click on over for pricing and to see larger versions of both pages.
This piece was done for the cover of GREYSHIRT: INDIGO SUNSET #2. It’s in perfect condition and I’d like to get $650 for it. If that sounds like a lot bear in mind one of the other covers in this series just sold for $1600, so I think it’s a fair price (and a good investment). If you are interested in making it your own, e-mail me.
Here’s a lovely color I’m offering up for sale. It was the first cover from my miniseries GREYSHIRT: INDIGO SUNSET. It’s in perfect condition and I’d like to get $550 for it. If you are interested in making it your own, shoot me an e-mail.
It seems like the original art that sells the fastest here on my blog are the double paged spreads. People seem to like the double wide size and the elastic effect it has on storytelling. Here’s a double page spread that takes that elastic effect even further by rotating it. You would have had to turn your copy of SGT. ROCK #359 sideways to read this piece.
This 16″ x 22″ spread, which I’ve had to reduce to 470 pixels here, is a striking “BATTLE ALBUM!” about the fire-bombing of Dresden in 1945. A really great short script by Bill Kelley. Art and lettering by me and I was very proud of it when I showed it to Joe Kubert. Because this double page spread is so unique I’d like to get $450 for it. If interested owning it, shoot me an e-mail.
With the holidays fast approaching, here are some reasonably priced, highly pedigreed pieces of original art that will make lovely gifts. These character designs were done for Alan Moore’s recreation of the Awesome Universe back in the late 1990’s. Each is executed in pen and ink by me on a half sheet of Image illustration board. If you are in the USA these can be Priority Mailed to reach you in time for Christmas. International may be a little more problematic, but we should be able to figure something out. Either way, shoot me an e-mail before some grinch grabs the one you want!
