  2. I agree with both of you guys. I think that there were 2 covers from the show that the scans fall a little short of capturing in their full glory. One is Andrew's because of the metallic paints that are in it. The other is Dustin Harbin's that will be posted on the blog soon. He has a yellow ink on his Richie Rich cover that is unlike anything I have ever seen. It seems to be floating 1/16" above the paper.

    Andrew was telling me at the show that this is his all time favorite comic. I think that there was an Al Wiseman Denis the Menace comic in the new Treasury of Kid's Comics that I read, but that is all that I have seen. I'll have to keep my eyes open for more.

  3. The detail in the original is impressive as it is, but the "covered" version is just so nice and refined. Wonderful pallet. Wish I could see the original.
