Show off your Michael Turner792

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
So there's been a bit of bad blood towards Aspen after some missteps last week and then there's the whole CBCS label thing. How about we focus on something awesome like everyone's Michael Turner anything; Covers, signatures, books, whatever!

I'll start off with a book I just got today. I was amazed that I got this for cheaper than cover price (not that it was particularly cheap then) but here it is! Number 13 out of 50! The holographic sticker was apparently signed by Turner at Wizard World LA 2007!




If you have a copy of this book and haven't flipped through it recently, there's a couple of things in the gallery you might recognize!

@zab47 I would say most are fans of the artist and as such might be willing to spend more for rare and collectible pieces

@zab47 For me it was an impulse buy back in 2009 iirc. I had just returned to collecting and to be honest I wasn't even aware of who Turner was or that he had passed away. I keep it in the slab because if I were to 'trim the fat' from my collection, this would be included.

Ok so technically this isn't mine. Back in 2005 or 2006, I can't remember which, I got to meet Michael Turner at SDCC. The woman I was dating at the time is a huge Turner fan so I bought this book and got him to sign it and make it out to her.

I had honestly forgotten all about this but she reminded me of it recently and sent this picture. My memory is terrible and I had all but forgotten. Michael was a nice guy and gracious enough to make the autograph to her.

Also got her a statue, which was signed by him on the bottom.

@AndyRexia Ah yes, the ex! The things we did for them. I had gotten mine a copy of ASM vol. 36 back when it was a lot cheaper than it is now.

Anyways, I hadn't seen that bust but it is very appropriate for the subject.

The book is great, too. While I don't have that one, I do have this one:

@dielinfinite she's the one ex I can actually get along with. I didn't mind doing that for her at all because now I have the cool memory of meeting Michael Turner.

I like your book. Very cool. I have some Turners of my own but nothing spectacular and I don't have any pictures at the moment.

@IndyKMB Thanks, love that book, it was the first CBCS slabbed book I bought, also the one Fathom book I could never find when I was first collecting Fathom about 18 years ago. It's also the one book I own where I intentionally try to get camera glare.

Jesus! I didn't realize Fathom was nearly 20 years old now! I thought it was like 10

@dielinfinite I think the Aspen reboot was closer to about 10 years ago. The original Top Cow series I think began in 1997.

Correction, the slab says 2000, issue 1 was probably 1999.

More on the way, once I figure out my camera size issues.

@Bloodlikefire I used to have the Museum Edition for Fathom #1 I think. I wasn't a huge fan of the style and I think it's the only comic I've ever sold.

alright I just bought a short box of comics at a silent auction and I put these fathom comics on the side thinking that they were sexy but never thought much of them until I joined on here wow now I have a great selection and the box only cost me 11 bucks am I lucky now I need to go see which 1's I have. do I keep for the future or sell any suggestions

Unless it's a particular valuable variant, I don't think many Fathom comics are worth a significant amount, though at $11 for the box, you'll still bring in a profit. Really it boils down to if you like the books enough to keep or do you prefer to make a few bucks selling them.

I like the covers

Fathom is a fantastic sci-fi story. Once Hollywood finally gets this thing going the books will take off in value. It's been in development hell for a few years now.

The variant covers have held some good value because of their rarity. Because of the regular issues being cheap it's a good time to fill any gaps in your collection.
