| Welcome to the Thieves & Kings page index!
This is an (almost) complete image index of all the pages which are currently available and their prices. This thing took WEEKS to create, (unreal!), and it will be regularly updated as pages sell or what have you. Each of the thumbnails links to a slightly larger reference image, (about 3"x4"), but this is meant primarily to be an index, not a gallery. (I'm not really supposed to keep large image galleries on my current web-host, but I figure this isn't quite the same thing). The best representations of the pages are in the comics and collected volumes themselves. If, however, you don't have access to those or if for some other reason you need to see a larger image of a given page, then by all means, please ask! I can email larger images on request. Indeed, if you have any questions at all regarding the artwork for sale here, please send me your questions. I'll answer you as best I can.
Now, even though I've posted prices, nothing is chipped in stone. If your financial situation is such that you just can't afford a page, but you reallly, really want the page in question, then by all means, let me know! I'll certainly try to accomodate you; it is very important to me that pages go to the people who will most appreciate them, (although the prices for the first issue are pretty much fixed). Also, buying more than one page in sequence might be worth a decent discount; I like the idea of some of the pages staying in story sequence, and I'll go out of my way to help that happen. --There are in fact a couple of instances where I am not selling pages at all unless leave here in pairs.
About the Artwork
The first 19 issues were made differently from those published from issue 20 onward. The pages from the first 19 issues all used Letraset tone, which was stuck directly to the artwork. Text portions are pasted directly to the artwork. These are completely finished pieces which, for the most part, look exactly like what was printed, (just larger and of much higher quality!) Pages from the first 20 issues practically glow, and I am very fond of them. As such, I've decided to charge a fair bit more for these pages than for those which came after.
With the pages published after issue #20, grey tones and text were added to the print film using a computer, and the pages do not exist in the real world as they appear in the comics. These pages are line-work only, with no greys. -However, when I sell these pages, I will be manually pasting any text passages which go with them on them into place, (with the exception of a couple of pages where the artwork would be covered up). --So even though the prose-pages shown here in the index don't appear with text, if you purchase one, then it will ship with text, because I'll be putting it there! They look far better that way.
Numerous pages also have additional bits of art and sketch in the margines; ideas which struck me as I was distracted from the job at hand. Some of these are very nice all by themselves. --I can't recall which issue, but one time I was designing super-heros for Tara to play in a roll-playing game which another cartoonist friend of mine was hosting. One of them I even colored. Another has a brief pencil sketch of a very pretty girl who had been visiting one afternoon, and who I spent more time gazing at than the page itself. I have made no attempt whatsoever to note these extra bits in the index. They're sort of like random prizes which may or may not pop up.
Page Finishing for an extra fee. . .
The pages after issue 19, being line-work only, can in many cases be finished. On a couple of occassions, I have for gifts, manually greyed my line art with pencil, and the results have been rather pleasing, far better than Letraset tone. For an extra fee of between $100 and $300 dollars, I am willing to finish some pages in this way. If you are interested in this, let me know and we can discuss it.
How to order
