I came across an EBAY auction the other day where someone was selling the one piece of “Saul” memorabilia from my days publishing comics that I don’t own. I was going to write about this last week but I didn’t want to drive up the bidding.
The item in the auction is the original cover art for Eclipse and Vega : Super Sized Special drawn by Bill Morrison. Bill is the top dog at Bongo Comics (Owned by Matt Groening and publishers of all the Simpsons Comics). I love this cover and so did Bill since he wouldn’t sell it to me when he was done. I had heard he had donated it to a charity auction a few years back (because he is a good guy!) and that it got some good money for the cause.
I was all giddy when it popped up on eBay and I got into the bidding action right away…but instead of putting the full amount of what i would have paid I kept raising my bid in increments.
Long story short (it is probably too late for that but….) I fell a sleep before this closed and never saw that I was outbid.
Oh well…..I hope it is in a good home!
