Not to "invade" the Invasion thread, but I wanted to thank the Mars Attacks folks for hooking Monsterwax up with Mark Finneral. (They both emailed and phoned to urge getting him before we released the series.) Yes, Finneral's art IS kick ass, and he WOULD be a perfect addition for anything Lovecraftian. So I'm delighted to say we just signed him on to the Legendary Lovecraft series (due out for Christmas).

I can't wait to see his contributions, 'coz based on his Mars Attacks sketches, they are really going to be something. Our other sketch artists are terrific too, so this is going to be an especially exciting series.

Default Tim's unknown artist

The artist in question is Patrick Giles. Can Adam or anyone confirm that Scott Rorie sketches , Anthony Hochrein sketches, and Keith Giffen autos are actually in the packs? Chasing smoke is very frustrating.

You can also set up a sale thread here: NON-SPORTS SINGLES BUY/SELL/TRADE - Blowout Cards Forums

I didn't realize this, and no one said anything when I posted, before. Now I know. Thanks.

Nice! Sounds like a match made in heaven for collectors!

Those are all awesome, Russ!


Hey, heads-up everyone - I don't want to post the link (probably not allowed anyway), but another online retailer has boxes of Invasion on sale today for $56.95. This makes me think these may end up on special during BO's Black Friday deals.

I have two Blank MA returns left primed for paints, what do ya'll think would make for a decent piece? More Boobage or more guts and brains?

No need to get touchy about it. It wasn't intended for you specifically. In case you didn't notice, the preceding post was also an artist advertising his own ebay auction. Its against BO rules, plain and simple. This forum is for discussion. There are sections dedicated to selling and advertising your auctions.

For those interested, Comikaze has permitted us to sell a small quantity of the Stan Strikes signed prints via our ebay store.

We've just posted the version signed by Stan Lee and will likely make the other unsigned edition available shortly.

These will only be available for a limited time, whether they've sold or not.

I usually don't like responding to snide remarks, but if you'd rather us throw the rest away, let me know and you can shred them yourself.

and you wonder why most folks from card companies don't casually post here...

Well, what do you do with your excess stock after a product has shipped and the replacement period has expired?

I'm not a fan of seeing these destroyed, but given the value is in the scarcity and these were advertised as convention exclusives, I'd be a little annoyed if I went to the con to get one of these only to find Topps selling them online.

I know, we're bitchy collectors...
