Neal Adams searching for valuable artwork left in taxi

neal-adams-art-cropped

Neal Adams could use a little help — well, a lot of help: The artist renowned for his work on such titles as Batman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow accidentally left two portfolios of original art in a New York City taxi, and he’s trying to get them back.

The New York Post reports the books were in a beige Bucky O’Hare bag left in the trunk of a yellow cab on Sept. 4. His daughter Kris Adams places their value at tens of thousands of dollars.

Adams’ studio is working closely with the Taxi and Limousine Commission and the New York Police Department to recover the portfolios. To that end, they’re distributing fliers with a sketch of the cab driver by Adams, and an image of the bag (below). They’ve also provided images of the art.

Anyone who has the portfolio, or knows their whereabouts, is asked to call 212.869.4170. A reward is being offered.

Perfect ‘Futurama’ send-off: original art auction for a good cause

futurama art

Given that Wednesday is the series finale of Futurama — at least until it’s resurrected again — it seems only appropriate that we showcase  this eBay auction of a piece of original art by Bill Morrison, signed by him, series creator Matt Groening, Producer Lee Supercinski, Executive Producer David X. Cohen and the entire cast.

Anyone who attended the Futurama panel last month at Comic-Con International, where Groening used the piece to “cheat” in his draw-off against animation director Edmund Fong. (You can see the video below.)

The current bid for the drawing, which measures 48 inches by 36 inches, is $1,125. All proceeds from the auction will benefit TLC (Tiny Loving Canines), a nonprofit small-dog breed rescue in Simi Valley, California. The auction ends Sept. 8.

David Lapham posts art from commissions he accepted in May

So your favorite artist announces he/she is taking commissions, something done so rarely that you begin getting excited. You’ve a few hundred burning a hole in your pocket, and so you decide to drop him/her a line and bag yourself one. But now you have to decide what to get them to draw. Do you go for an iconic pose of the artist’s signature character, or a more obscure choice from an old personal-favorite comic? That old comic character you think the artist is a perfect choice to draw, but will probably never get the opportunity to? Or go crazy and get them to draw some crazy gag only you and your friends are privy to, some in-joke or fetish or shibboleth that’ll make you smile every time you see it?

Shelf Porn Face-off | Who has the best Shelf Porn? You decide!

poll_wide_shelfporn

I’ve noted in the past that Shelf Porn isn’t a competition — it’s a celebration of the diversity of collections from fans all over the world. Well, today we’re going to push that philosophy to the side for a good old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out Shelf Porn Face-off! Two collections enter, but only one can leave the champion.

It started when I received an email from Tommy Baldwin, who said that he and his friend Shawn Hoklas wanted us to help settle the question “Who has the better room/collection?” I suggested we put it out to our readers to help decide. So, I’ve posted both sets of pictures today, and I’ve set up a poll so that you can vote for the room you think is better. If you aren’t sure how to decide, you can use the same criteria they use on Chopped — creativity, presentation and taste.

You can view Tommy’s collection below, then jump over to page two to take a look at Shawn’s. Finally, on page three, you’ll find a poll so you can vote for your choice. I’ll leave it open for a week, and then next Saturday we’ll declare a winner. Update: And we have a winner! Click over to the poll page to see who won.

Special thanks to Tommy and Shawn for sharing their collections with us. Now check them out!
