After signing my name at least 20 times, my signature becomes Sal Horowitz.

I stumbled across his videos on youtube, and loved his inking style. His 'Faust' video is my favorite.

Thanks for the reply. I know the name, but am not familiar with his work. I'll have to look up his yt stuff.


Warning! Warning! Vigil is a twisted little monkey. Faust and Grips.


I know it- he gave me a signed sketch collection that's pretty much demon porn :lol: But a great artist.

Hey, very cool. Was that a surprise to you or did you already know it was in there?

I've never read one of those before, but I love those kind of mags.

I wasn't aware of it until after I paid for it. I honestly don't remember the description mentioning it until afterwards, but that isn't likely, and at $25 it didn't stand out as having something special about it.

No worries, please- Just going from my limited Con experience, I imagine sig hunting has to be a chore.

It appears Lieber, Steranko, Wein, S Buscema, Romita Sr, Claremont, Conway, Sinnot, et al will be at the Dallas show this month.

Too bad I'm not a siggy! :lol:

Great guest list! I'd definitely have some things for them to scribble on.

No doubt, I'm sure you do. :lol:

Even though May holds the largest Dallas con, (with Stan Lee, and Walking Dead stars) this month's line up seems to have a more classic taste.

Picked up two gap fillers (289,290). The Annual is a raw upgrade. I have a few of these- I keep buying them every few years.

Going to the PO to pick up a page from Dick Giordano's last published work (Colony).

I just purchased 17 pages of Rich Buckler comic art. The seller is kicking himself for not raising the prices after Buckler passed away and I got a bargain at a $55 average.
I'm pretty sure these are unpublished, so who knows? If a publisher decides to print his previously unknown work, they may need these.

Hurry up, USPS!

Awesome Vigil pages. He had a Venom cover he did for sale on his Instagram account that is so tempting.

There was a time when both of those were $25 books...in 1992 dollars! ;)

I was at Wonder Con in 1991 or 1992, when it was still in Oakland, and I stumbled across a #289 in some dealer's bin for cover price...I was on cloud 9. At the time, ANYTHING Hobgoblin was worth "$$$".

Little did I know that it would soon revert to being worth cover price again, and would remain that way for the next couple of decades. lol

Same with Annual #15...Miller and Punisher, together? Now, it's perhaps $5, $10 in really nice shape. Since it's not the first appearance of somebody, no one in the current market cares. :thumbsup2:

I know, you'd think the Miller/Punisher combo would mean something with the Netflix generation. Of course, if it did I wouldn't have purchased this upgrade.

After signing my name at least 20 times (at work) my signature appears more like a bolt of lightning followed by a horizontal line. My sig is more difficult to read than a Medical Doctor's.
