Information on Ordering Artwork and answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
Please Provide the Following information when Placing an Order:
1.) The name of the
artist's section the page is listed in. Even if there are multiple artists
listed, it is important to list the artist whose section the page is in.
Example, when ordering an Amazing Spider-Man page from Scott Hanna (who inked
the issue over John Romita, Jr.) please list Scott Hanna as the artist.
Due to the volume of pages and artists we represent, if this is not done, order
processing will be significantly delayed and it is possible we will be unable to
locate the page for you to complete your order.
6) If there is no scan of the page, please briefly describe the first panel scene. This is to make sure the page numbering is the same (i.e. you want story page 12, not line-up page 12) and many pages are without lettering on the pages now, so word balloons will not be helpful in all situations. Please do not e-mail the scan back to me as part of your order. I do not download attachments from people I do not know due to the threat of computer virus.
The only means of ordering is via E-mail Confirmation. Please
E-Mail all requests for pages to SpencerBck@aol.com.
Please note due to the volume of requests, sometimes delays occur in the
order confirmation process. All order will be processed in the
order they were received (i.e. if you placed an order on May 1 but don't
receive a confirmation immediately, if someone else tries to order the
same page on May 5, the page is still on hold for you).
1) ORDERS : MUST be emailed to SpencerBck@aol.com . NO EXCEPTIONS. Telephone and fax orders will no longer be accepted. We apologize for any inconvenience.
