Joe Satriani, the “Silver Surfer”

This custom encompasses more than 27 years of Silver Surfer and Joe Satriani history...

This custom encompasses more than 27 years of Silver Surfer and Joe Satriani history...

The focus of this Silver Surfer/Joe Satriani custom is the original relase 45 “Surfing with the Alien” off of the album with the same name. 

The artwork for the album, released August 1987 was “borrowed” from Marvel Comics’ issue #1 June of 1982 Silver Surfer, page 6, panel 1.  No permission was ever granted for this although the album was re-issued in August 2007 for its 20th anniversary.  That  Legacy Edition artwork is displayed with the 45 and the comic is on the left surrounded by the USPS first day of issue stamps and postmarks commemorating Marvel Comics.

On the right, a photo of Joe Satriani is autographed and displayed with a Limited Edition “Silver Surfer” guitar pin.

In sleeves on the back you will find each item’s provenance as well as a duplicate comic to read.  No other gathering of entertainment fine art will you find to match this History in Vogue original and one of a kind.  It is the pinnacle of assemblage.

Everything is contained within a custom-built wood frame and protected by conservation glass.

We build customs occasionally by special request.  We have several pieces already finished and ready for purchase at www.nwlimited.com so come claim your piece of History in VogueTM!

May 2 is Free Comic Book Day


Free Comic Book Day is here (Saturday, May 2nd), so get yourself to your nearest comic book store and inquire about participation and rules.  On the website, you can insert your zip code and find a local shop as well as learn about which comics will be available.

The idea behind Free Comic Book Day, which was introduced in 2002,  is to help introduce newcomers to Comics, most notably children and thus encourage literacy and healthy participation in the hobby of reading and collecting comic books.

Dark Knight vs. Iron Man

If you ask Robert Downey, Jr, who seems to have an opinion on the matter:
He admits that DC Comics’ Dark Knight made him feel “dumb” and in need of a college education, likening the movie to a Ferrari engine.  Downey also alluded that there was too much going on in the plot.
His parting shot was (and I quote): “You know what? F**k DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”

Ironman Comic from the movie signed by Robert Downey, Jr.

Robert Downey, Jr. is Tony Stark in Marvel Comics' Iron Man

Heath Ledger portrays the Joker in DC Comics' Dark Knight

 
Have you an opinion on which is the better bit of entertainment?
Or do you think they’re both great movies, just different?
Go with the numbers (Dark Knight took approx. 155 mil its first weekend, and is the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time with $442 million in sales as it topped the movie chart for a fourth straight weekend, Iron Man raked in about 107 mil opening weekend…) or cast your vote:
Either of the above are available for purchase.
