I saw a comparison with his silver surfer side by side with a marvel one, in a link in another thread yesterday (cant rem where), it was pretty much the same too

Yes, a link from the clusterfuck thread. Francovilla or something? I didn't see the image, but heard about it.

yeah that was it

Yeah not as blatant as the punisher one, still cuts a similar image. have to say though the francavilla is the better piece

francavilla is amazing though - one of the best guys in comics at the moment IMO - did you see his 1930s/1970s Batman series? they were fantastic - was gutted when he pulled out of TB last year (or was it the year before? I forget) :(

Indeed , no doubt a rare occurance ...

Just like when I said to the yonder lass "verily young maiden , where for soothe thine petroleum garage?"

And her reply laid me asunder "ya wa' Chook?" And nutted me in the bollocks.

It certainly was and I was indeed caught up in the wedding :)

I am happy to facilitate this now but two things need to be brought to your attention.

Mainly, it turns out that they had been selling us a particular mount as acid free which wasn't. It was a black core mount which they claimed was acid free. We discovered it wasn't when Chris swapped out his Reservoir Dogs to find a black shadow around the border :( To cut a long story short he argued it wasn't their fault (which it quite clearly was) and were pretty rude about it (banned Chris from the shop)!

Eventually they settled with Chris when they realised they had been mis-selling the mount boards which were not acid free.

Secondly the cost of the UV acrylic has gone up.

If you want a white core mount with normal glass we can still get a deal. If you wish to use this framer! I would suggest that they are ok as the white core is acid free and you will be framing the art yourself so care will be taken.

Let me all know your thoughts and I will either forget the plan or crack on with it!

What about this as a possible perminant solution?

Put the UV protection film over the windows of your house and just use normal glass in the frames.

It may start getting you refered to as "the guy who lives in the creepy looking house" and cost about 50 million quid to get done properly , but hey , what price a mint looking Spider-Man Mondo poster in 100 years time eh?

Having skin so pale that it burns when I open the fridge, I tend to use the age old option of blackout curtains. This eliminates the need for UV glass

I had heard that all black core mounts were not acid free but could be wrong - still I am amazed it affected the paper so quickly - that really sucks. I am just going to use someone local I think as I do want the UV resistant acrylic or glass.

Has anyone got a Bertmer Hellraiser that they are happy to get rid of?

I am hunting down a few things I want to frame and I want this to make a little Hellraiser wall.
