Thanks, I believe that was the same year he was there at that show. I managed to get him to sign my Shi Hardcover he did the cover art for. I was told he never signs outside of official stuff. Sweet guy wish I'd met him before his many strokes. Was funny you were eyeing me suspiciously while I inspected the painting. I'f i'm not mistaken you were doing Black Panther then.

I thought most were well through the sketch cards months ago? The initial plan for release was 2014, of course, and the reverse of the sketch blanks had a 2014 copyright date if I'm remembering correctly.

Yet? Mine were finished 5 years ago.

A response from Mr. Jusko himself! Sounds like this set will definitely be worth the wait!

I'm still looking forward to this set!

Have dealers received preorder information on this set yet? I would think that would hit soon-ish if this set is still on track for a 2015 release.

No, no solicitation of this one yet.

And yes, they need to get that done if this is going to be a 2015 release.

Anyone heard of any updates?

NSU had something about MM being in their next issue but I don't see the information on their website anymore.

Default Update

I emailed NSU about the cover switch. Their response:

"Thanks for getting in touch. As we were finishing the issue, we asked for the final artwork for our cover (the Thanos piece that you mentioned was a low resolution image we used for our preview image). At that point, we learned from Upper Deck the series is considerably behind schedule as they finish up obtaining the balance of art from Joe they need to put the series together. We had not been informed of this until our issue was in the layout stage. Upper Deck asked us not to run the cover as it would benefit no one to feature something on the cover that would not be available to collectors for months and months."

UppderDeck's facebook page replied to an Oct. 4 comment asking about the release date by saying that Joe is wrapping up the last few paintings.

This is too bad. I am still looking forward to this set, but I know some artists turned in their sketches over a year ago. That seems to be a long time to hold off in selling their APs for this set (basically their biggest form of compensation).

On the other hand, it is nice for Upper Deck not to rush out the set with another artist filling out the base. In this day in age, you would think most companies would cut their losses and release the set. So, you can't say Upper Deck lacks patience (in this example at least).

I honestly think Retro 2015 was rushed a bit to fill this set's gap in the schedule when it blew past its previous release dates. And Upper Deck and people who broke a lot of Retro 2015 took one in the nose with that set. Retro 2015 was a far cry from the 2013 set in both terms of quality and fan interest (which factored into the low, low prices on eBay -- for the most part).

Don't forget some of the Jusko art for this set has already been released in other forms.

They explained the cover switch inside the issue.

I tried that on Google before I asked for the link; nothing comes up and I don't have a Facebook account.

Any update on this set? I know Upper Deck gets a lot of grief, but they have been exceptionally patient with Jusko to delay so long in putting out this set. Hopefully it still sees the light of day!

Joe posted an update on his facebook page yesterday
"Finishing a Thanos vs. Drax card. Over 130 paintings in and this is one of my favorites. Still enjoying the hell out of this project. I can count the pieces left on one hand!"

UD catches a lot of crap, some of it deserved, but kudos to them for undertaking this challenge and, of course, to Jusko for creating what is certain to be one of the best sets ever.

Any of Joe's original artwork gonna be in the set?

Will he do sketch cards as well?

How can one obtain his original artwork for this set?

Sorry for all the questions. Stuff is top shelf.
