The original artwork pages from comic books are also collected, and these are perhaps the rarest of all comic book collector's items, as there is only one unique page of artwork for each page that was printed and published. These were created by a writer, who created the story; a pencil artist, who laid out the sequential panels on the page; an ink artist, who went over the pencil with pen and black ink; a letterer, who provided the dialogue and narration of the story by hand lettering each word; and finally a colorist, who added color as the last step before the finished pages went to the printer.
Yes, your comics are insured while in my care. In fact, return shipping insurance is even covered, which is quite a savings considering USPS & Canada Post charge an arm and a leg for this service. Since a $1000 deductible is in effect, customers may wish to purchase this amount from USPS/ Canada Post when I arrange return shipping for them. To take advantage of this coverage, customers must submit a comic book value form when initially submitting their books – this form will be sent to customers with the submission package. Also, in order for the insurance to be in place, return shipping must include USPS/ Canada Post signature option (that is, customers must sign for their comics upon return to them).
