They will definitely sort it out for you...I've found them to be a little on the slower side in there responding to emails though.

Yep. Though I requested an address change after ordering so I'm a little paranoid that it went out to the old address without a ship notification.

I've been cataloguing all the artwork in my house to prep for an upcoming move and came across a Beckett I wanted some advice on.

Here's the backstory: I went to MondoCon last year and Burlesque was selling overprints/samples and I found a beautiful Black Sabbath piece that was from a show near my hometown (and on my birthday no less). I shlepped it over to Richey and he kindly signed it, we had a chat and he remarked on how it looked damn good for a test print. Cut to now, I finally did the research I should have done and realized it's a one-off from Sabbath's final tour, but a totally different palette. The back was clearly used for ink testing, but it looks perfect on the front.

Is this redheaded stepchild worth anything? As a relatively new poster collector, I'm still trying to figure out the resale side of this hobby and would appreciate a few pro tips.

I'm gonna guess and say your test compares in value to the AP run of 66, give or take. It's a fine test but i think the olive paper on the regular run was def the better choice which creates a better contrast with the other colors. The ink on the back doesn't subtract any value imo (and probably adds value). Though it looks like it might have a crease. Go ahead and add your photo to the database using the add image link. Actually it would be cool to see any other tests out there. Great image.

I would say it is worth whatever you paid for it.

That’s a pretty good one and definitely a few of us out here that dig test prints. Mine is on white and a little more, testy?.

^Nice. Tests are cool that reveal a bit of the process.

Thanks for the responses! @fallstaff - You're definitely right about the original... the olive green makes the whole thing pop in a way the gray from mine doesn't.
I'm going to assume it's worth what I paid for it, but who knows. Maybe somebody will be dying for a stark test print if I ever decide to sell. Love the white test print! Gives it a bit of a smoky vibe...

Absolutely honoured to have my LABYRINTH artwork featured as a variant cover for @boom_studios latest comic, huge thanks to @boom_studios and @mondonews for this. By some curious serendipity I found myself walking to the comic book store this morning with my wonderful hosts @michaelwconrad and @beckycloonan only to find that my first foray into the comic book world hit the shelf today
