Default My favorite pick-up of the month

I thought I would start a new thread featuring my favorite pick-up of the month... whether it be a pack pull, an online buy, or a commission.

Mandy/Cherry crossover puzzle by George Webber (done on Mandy Meets ZvC and Cherry AEs)



Lets see your favorite pick-ups from this past month!

I like that one a lot as well--the repetition of the curved shapes creates a nice flow.

Sorry to keep everybody waiting so long to find out what my favorite pick-up from March was! (hehe... like anybody cares)

March was mostly commissions so its really difficult to chose. I got some really great stuff from Amber Shelton, Mary Bellamy, and Kelly Everaert... but my favorite pick-up comes from George Webber. It combines everything I love: zombies, cheerleaders, Cherry, and Mandy Plus I think it has an unfair advantage being a 2 card puzzle!



I just love the look on Skoots. George nailed it! And why does Cherry have a hair dryer? Who knows, who cares? Its AWESOME!

You can see the other (ALSO AWESOME) Cherry/Mandy crossover puzzle I got from Mary in her art thread, and you can see the spectacular zombie fighting cheerleader and a super cute Manga Mandy I got from Amber in her thread. I've also updated my Cherry collection thread with both Cherry/Mandy crossover puzzles and the Kelly Everaert AEs. I highly recommend you commission some cards from these guys while you can.

Amber Shelton: https://www.facebook.com/ambernshelton (or on Blowout!)
Mary Bellamy: Zorilita - The Online Gallery of Mary Bellamy (or on Blowout!)
Kelly Everaert: Keltic Studios
George Webber: George Webber's No Cash Comics Blog - George WebberArtist - Cartoonist - Illustrator

Feel free to tell them Spider-Fan sent you... not that it will get you anything

So what was YOUR favorite pick up last month?

March was crazy...can't really pick a favorite so here are the highlights

This was one of the first arrivals of March


Lots of Stargate stuff including








I finished the quad costume card set for Avengers Assemble with this (special thanks to ricksam for buying it from a US seller who would not ship to AK)


Picked up a Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life Master set that included



Didn't get much sketch card wise, but did receive this Kat Laurange AP


And this Avengers Aseemble sketch for my collection
