The sketch was a Christmas present from my wife and the custom frame and matte work was done by my father-in-law for my b-day. The matte work was done to cover up some personalization to previous owner. Anyhow, just got it today!

Here are a few of my framed pieces. I started out using fancy frames on some things, but realized that for most comic pages I like a very simple black metal frame with a white matte and black edging. I have also done black matte too but for whatever reason I really like the white matte. (shrug)


The Crow by James O'Barr. One of the earliest pieces of OA I ever bought -- I started collecting art in the very early 1990s. I bought some O'Barr Crow sketches, a couple Iron Man pages from John Romita Jr., and a painting from Dark One. My wife really liked this piece so we gave it a nice fancy frame -- I think the framing might have cost more than the art! lol






Avengers 3 page by Jack Kirby. Here's the plain white matte mentioned above. I think I like the white because it doesn't compete with the art for attention.






TOS 84 featuring Cap vs Super Adaptoid. I framed this with a copy of the page as printed in the comic as well as with the cover of a TOS 84. It's one of my favorite stories from childhood so I gussied up the presentation a bit.





Journey Into Mystery 125 splash. I thought about using a big fancy frame for this splash, but decided again that less was more. The images of Thor and the witch doctor just jump off the page. I wonder sometimes how it would look with a black matte. hm
