Original Batman Art Left In New York City Taxi

Neal Adams Lost Bag Poster

"Holy shit, Batman!" is a phrase probably uttered by the person entering the NYC taxi cab that was just vacated by famed comic book artist Neal Adams. Neal left two portfolios of his original artwork in the back seat of the cab, which let him off at West 27th Street and 7th Ave. The books contained "tens of thousands of dollars" worth of original art from Batman, Green Lantern, Catwoman, and more.

If you found Neal's artwork, return it. Please. It's the right thing to do. Don't make Neal cry. The entire world of geekdom shall weigh heavy upon your conscience for all your days. Until some kid in a Spider-man outfit finally tracks you down and billy-clubs you from behind a mailbox. It's just not worth it.

Neal sketched the driver, which is kind of an honor. So all you fans out there that want your portrait done by Neal, you know what to do.

Seriously though, if you have the book or any information, you're being asked to call 212-869-4170.

J.K. Woodward original from G.I. Joe Cobra #6

J.K. Woodward is offering a couple of his original G.I. Joe paintings for sale on! That's right, YOU can own a piece of comic book/G.I. Joe history. Gouache on heavy artist paper. Price, not bad. Not bad at all for these monumental originals. Go buy em quick, before someone beats you to it. He's only offering two pieces, both of which were seen on this week's episode of Pete's Basement, by the way. So if you want to clone us, you just might be able to find our precious DNA clinging to them as well. I wouldn't advise that though. Our clones would most certainly be evil, or at least real pricks!
