New art for sale and new changes!

Hey, everyone! There's a lot happening with Sequential Treasures right now, as our changes continue. Some you'll like and others not so much. So, let's get to the latest developments.

First, we've just added almost a dozen new pieces for sale today. We have a cover from Randy Kintz, which is some of his earliest work. Also, we have lots of new pages from inker Mick Gray. These feature his work on Batman and Robin, Brightest Day, Jonah Hex, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne and the Green Lantern Movie Prequel: Abin Sur (which is shown here in the image above)! All of these pages are penciled by either Patrick Gleason or Ryan Sook, so it's going to be good stuff. Be sure to check these out.

Sadly, though, Not everything is so cheery. As you may have noticed, the prices on all our art has gone up. I've strived very hard to keep prices down, but the economic realities just forced my hand. My costs for running this operation aren't getting smaller, but the sales are. However, there is a bright side to this. For now, any order of art totaling $150.00 or more, will get FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world. That's right free domestic and international shipping for all orders of art totaling $150.00 or more. So, I've tried to lessen the impact of this necessary price increase. I may have had to bow to the economic harshness of these times, but I'm still trying watching your bottom line, as well.

That's all for now. Convention season is still in gear and I know several of my artists have new books due out next month, so you'll be hearing about more stuff soon. So, stop by the art gallery and check the new stuff and place an order! Until next time, peace out!


News, news, and more news! Read all about it!

Hey, everyone! Your faithful blogmaster is back to give you the latest news and info on our awesome array of talented artists. There's a lot of stuff to cover here, some of it good and some not so much, so let us get to it!

First off, Randy Kintz's work is making the rounds in a very special way. You recall last September I told you how some of his art was part of a museum exhibit called "Comics at the Crossroads," which featured many artists from the Pacific Northwest and focused on how the art of comics and the graphic novel has had a substantive impact of literature and history. Well, the exhibit is making the rounds and will be at the Boise Art Museum in Boise, ID. The exhibit will debut there tomorrow and run through Nov. 27th. If you are in the area, make sure to stop by and check it out. It's a big honor for Randy and we here at Sequential Treasures couldn't be prouder of him. You can get more info at the museum's website.

Next, just in case you missed it, Mick Gray did an interview at the DC Comics blog this past Tuesday. In it, they talk to him about his long career and other things. Best of all, you get a sneak peek at a couple of pages to Batman and Robin #1, from the upcoming major company reboot starting next month. It's pretty cool stuff, so make sure to read up here, if you haven't already.

Lastly, and sadly the part that is the bad news I mentioned, there's still more changes happening at Sequential Treasures. Due to a complete drought of sales for the past several months, and with me seeing no way to avoid doing this any longer, I must unfortunately inform you all that, very shortly, prices on our artists art will be increasing. My costs of running this operation aren't getting any smaller and this is really the only thing left for me to do. As you all know, I've strived very hard over the past several years to keep prices lower and more affordable to allow more people access to the wonderful treasure trove of art from our talent. But economic realities don't cease, just because we want to be nice. So my advice to all of you, is that if you've been eye-balling a piece on our art gallery from a while, but have been holding off on buying, you'd best pull the trigger ASAP, or you'll be paying more for that piece in the near future.

Well, sorry to end this post on such a down note. Hopefully, things will pick up soon and I can come back with brighter and happier news in the next one. We still have convention season going strong and I know of some upcoming shows our talent will be at, as well as some new comic works that are set to debut over the next couple of months. So, there is more good news ahead and I'll be sure to bring it to you. Until then, peace out!


Don't faint, but it's a new art update!

Hello, all! Well, I'm back with some more excitement for you all. It's a sort of bad news/good news/bad news kinda thing. So, let's get started, shall we?

First off, our big summer sale was a big summer flop. I don't want to say sales were dry, but the business was mistake for a part of southern Texas and put on a high drought warning. I really didn't know what to make of this, other than folks aren't interested in sales (which is fine with the artists and I, as we prefer getting full price for the art). So, never let it be said I never bow to the wishes of the consumer. Effective immediately, no more sales... EVER! Who says we can provide "instant gratification?" Certainly not I!

Now, while this might be considered bad news, here's the good news part. I've updated some new art for sale. Yes, an actual art updated has happened (try not to pass out). All 21 pages of Fire and Brimstone #5, featuring the peerless talents of Richard Moore, are now up on our art gallery and available to purchase. You can check them out for yourself. However, this is where the other bad news comes in, the quality of the images isn't the best. As I'm still scanner-less, I had to use an old digital camera to get the images for the gallery. They are not of the usual quality you have probably come to expect (the image shown here is one of the best of the bunch). But, when you've got no money, you do what you can. And that's what I did here. [Edit 8/5/11: Just added today are 10 new pin-up pieces from artist Ben Hansen. That makes over 30 new pieces of art for sale this week, so let's get on the stick and place some orders, folks, as you've no excuses to not do so now!]

Well, there we go. Short (somewhat) and sweet (well, maybe more bitterly sweet). That'll do it for this time, but I'm sure I'll be back soon with more stuff for you soon. I sense big changes are coming to Sequential Treasures, so I'll be sure to keep you informed. Until then, peace out!
