You've started several, and this thread is the merger of two. There may be more threads. If I find the posts, I can lasso them into this thread.

Here is an altered and cropped version of the ebay photograph.

I'm mirroring this post that Starbrand made in another thread:
____________________________

Here's a link to the Warriors of Plasm 6 cover that recently sold for 240.32. I've also added a pic of it to this post.

I think smartphone use is the bigger root cause.

Didn't I have a thread where I listed closing DEFIANT art auctions with the ending price and a picture on the post for long-term reference?

What sucks is visiting a site designed for a smart phone when I'm viewing it with a 32 inch monitor.

Didn't this thread used to have images of original DEFIANT art that sold on eBay?


I found another one and merged two more threads. That makes 4 threads where you were posting DEFIANT art listings on eBay. Smiley

I saved the image, but it was low resolution. I'm not going to take the effort to display it here. You can if you want. Less than $20 when the same seller is listing select Stray Bullets pages for about 40 times that with a BIN. Something is out of whack or it's proof that certain DEFIANT artists were overpricing their pages.

Noticing that the original cover art to Birth of the Defiant Universe is being sold on a BIN for $1200 and eBay is saying that it previously sold for $2600. Isn't Greg the seller? Who is taking a $1400 loss on this piece?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Defiant-Birth-of-the-Defiant-Universe-1-cover-Art-David-Lapham-/173274404361?oid=172646745566

In all honesty, I quit buying DEFIANT art at the right time. People are jerking around buyers with the prices.

Neither had I. The owner attempted to post it on the Facebook group that Mark started, but the image link was blocked. I found a way to grab it. I attempted to square it up with only moderate success.

It's cool to see Lapham was still doing the next Plasm cover after the Schism event. I remember the Lorca character was left on earth after the Schism storyline according to the last pages of Plasm #13. This cover looks like he was going back to the Org again.

The report is that the entire issue was penciled, not just the cover. {Cool}
My goal was to recompile all of that for the fans. Too much greed stepped in the way. Buying the art made people split it up the art and try to sell the individual pieces for more. That's why I quit buying Defiant art. I wasn't trying to corner the market. I was trying to reconstruct the unpublished stories. I felt robbed when Defiant shut down. I felt like great things were set before the fans and the rug was pulled out from under our feet.

Did he work for DEFIANT? How did he get a picture of the color Schism page I own?

This seller has a bunch of Plasm/Lapham pages:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/zisette/m.html?item=132930428552&hash=item1ef3455e88%3Ag%3AM9kAAOSwtcRcS846&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

And this seller has a Schism cover:

I thought about buying art from Lapham directly through a web link I have saved. The prices would have been better by buying larger quantities, but I opted against that. I think that is his eBay account. I've seen the account before, but I might be wrong about it being him.

Hell would fucking freeze over before I'd pay even $200 for a piece of DEFIANT art and it would have to be the best of the best. $1200 is not even remotely tempting. The eBay ad is wrong on the second link also. It was published as the cover to CSN (Comic Shop News) #366 (June 29, 1994) . The ad states that it was unpublished. I do not believe that it was ever intended to be the cover to a Schism comic book. CSN ran artwork on their covers that were not used on the comics themselves. Where would the title logo have been placed? DEFIANT didn't have small title graphics. CSN did.

Furthermore, I think Valman51 is Greg. He can go fuck himself. I wouldn't buy a damn thing from him even if he was charging me only a penny.

You stirred up memories I'd forgotten about. It brought out my colorful language.


I dug a little. I thought Valman51 was Greg. He's implying online that it isn't him. The seller is being identified as someone in Illinois. I don't think it's former board member Vaultkeeper. I think he would've mentioned owning this if he'd owned in in 2002.

I don't even like thinking about the people on the Valiant message board. Some of those names piss me off because they're obnoxious slime balls. Some annoy me because they're ignorant about how obnoxious the slime balls are.

That same seller has the Birth Of Defiant Universe art cover too. I think he once listed that as 5 grand some years back and slowly he marked it down. I think even 12 grand one time before that. Looking at his auctions, he sells current vei artwork too so I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of those forumers. I thought as a forumer there, he would have more knowledge that this was just an ad and at least have more info on the artist.

The only Schism promo art I remember seeing is this one on a promo card and the ads with the Zahnree character floating over earth. Never saw any solicted cover art.

This artwork has someone named Holdridge on it.

I don't know of a Holdridge. I really don't want to think too deeply about it. I've said it before, but I lost interest in DEFIANT art when the artists started jacking up the prices. There was no market for the art before my site. As soon as my site started sparking interest in the comics and art, prices escalated ten-fold. Does it make any sense for a person to drive up the prices of something they want to buy? They can ask what they want, but I'm not going to drive up the prices and then rush out and pay those prices. I have some degree of self-respect. I really only wanted the unpublished art so that I could recreate the stories. The creators started splitting up the artwork when they found out they could sell it. My moderate interest dropped to zero at that point. As far as I'm concerned, Lapham's art is in less demand than ever. He simplified his style and in my opinion he devalued the worth of all his art.

Buying art is just a novelty thing for me. I'm not yearning for the best. I don't want the worst at all. My collection is just a random whim to have a representation of the artist's work. I'm more likely to buy art now if I'm meeting the creator at a show. It'd just be a reminder that I met the creator.
