comic book offerings and the largest original comic art segment we have
ever had in a single auction.” says ComicLink Consignment Director

it is obvious that our buyers took notice.”

Early page from the classic Wolman/Perez "New Teen Titans", featuring
Robin, Starfire, Changeling (Albeit being zapped in the face) and the
Fearsome Five's Shimmer (on the ground) and resident genius Gizmo
(proving both that small can be deadly and a man with enough pockets
covering every inch of his costume can finally have more weapons than a
member of the Bat-clan wearing a slim utility belt. Who makes
those things? The same guys as manufacture the Tardis?)
page is a real oddity, terrific, but an oddity. It appears to be inks
on paper, traced from over George Perez original pencils.
are no speech balloons, but the art underneath where they were placed on
the produced page is completely consistent with the surroundings,
suggesting it really was traced from the original. However Rick Magyar,
though a respected inker, wasn't the credited inker on this issue (Romeo
Tanghal was) and there are minor stylistic differences between this and
the final version.
A test piece perhaps? I'd love to know more about it.
The original is somewhat dicscoloured, but a little work has restored it to close to what it's original shades must have been.
(Vu: Rick Magyar worked with George Perez for CrossGen Comics in 2003. Magyar worked on NEW TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #4 (1988).
